No-Fault Divorce: A Step Forward for the LGBTQ Community
Many people who contact us for advice have experienced life-changing events. Our clients include people who have suffered medical negligence and been involved in cases of sexual abuse.
Trauma-informed lawyers understand that trauma manifests itself in many ways and that our responses to trauma are unique. A trauma-informed lawyer recognises that asking clients to recount their accident, injury, or assault can be extremely difficult. Just telling your story can be enough to induce severe anxiety and stress. Some clients compare the process of repeatedly giving their account to being traumatised all over again.
Litigation is invariably stressful, but it is possible to minimise the negative emotions that go with such a difficult process. Done well, trauma-informed lawyering can be empowering for clients and give them a sense of control over their case.
To achieve this, we work hard to understand how your injury has affected your life. We appreciate this can take time and might require the views of various experts. We take this seriously and often work with psychiatrists and psychologists to ensure we understand our clients.
Clients are unique, and each one deserves an equally tailored and personal approach. We can only fully value a claim once we have completely understood its impact on your life and wellbeing. Gaining such an understanding means giving you the chance to tell your story in the way that best suits you and makes you feel heard at all times.
Trauma-informed lawyering is not only relevant to our work with you, it is also vital to how we guide you at the point when proceedings become more adversarial. We know that litigation becomes especially daunting when the other side discredits your version of events or seems to minimise your suffering. We understand that this is when a personal and empathetic approach becomes most important.
Although each client is unique, there are certain steps that we consider to be best practice when helping our clients. Such good practice includes:
We take these steps because we want to help our clients obtain the best possible outcome with the least stress.
