MK Disability Lawyers partner Leanne Goldstein was honoured to be featured in an article recently by Legal Matters about better representing traumatized clients. Please see an excerpt reprinted below, and visit the Legal Matters website to read the full article.
At MK Disability Lawyers, Goldstein and her partners have embraced the role of trauma-informed lawyers and believe in establishing relationships with clients that will help them feel secure as they navigate through the legal system.
“At the end of the day, the satisfaction in the work that we do is not merely about settling a claim, it is moving our clients through an emotional space. The people we represent often need a strong and impassioned voice, an advocate to speak on their behalf. Someone who is going to fight for them with a true understanding of what they have endured,” she tells LegalMattersCanada.ca. “It is essential to us that our clients gain some sort of closure and a validation of their experiences and feelings of injustice. “Of course, we want to get the best monetary outcome for our clients and we advocate fiercely to do that.
“But just as important is the acknowledgment of who our clients are, what they have gone through in their lives and what they are hoping to achieve,” Goldstein adds.
