Overcoming the ‘golfing lawyer’ mindset
If Australia’s legal profession is to meaningfully progress in the new normal, Rose Cocchiaro believes “egocentric, outdated” modes of legal practice have to be left by the wayside.
On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Resolve Divorce founder Rose Cocchiaro, who feels that certain cultural and attitude changes are happening too slowly. Being client-centric is non-negotiable, she says, and that being confident and assertive as a lawyer does not mean bringing one’s ego into the equation.
The pair also discuss what the rest of the legal profession can learn from the experience of family lawyers, and the changes such practitioners have implemented in recent years that offer a pathway for those across the board.
