Defending your rights

A chevalier, or knight, is a person upon whom the title, rank or order of knighthood has been conferred. In medieval times, knights travelled the world, seeking to restore justice to those in need of defending.

Always efficient, the knight was ready to enter into battle with confidence and emerge the victor. A "knight in shining armour" is an individual who is willing to come to the defence of others without hesitation. Respect and courage are the hallmarks of his character and guide his every move.

In the legal field, a person upon whom the title of "chevalier" has been conferred is said to have earned the title for his ability and his mastery of the law and is referred to as Maître.
