Supporting solicitors – Need someone to talk to?

It is a well-established fact that the pressures and challenges of working in the legal profession are taking their toll on solicitors.

For many sole practitioners, the difficulties of practice are further intensified by isolation and the lack of social interaction and support with colleagues.

Long hours, financial struggles, difficult clients, big decisions – the responsibility and weight of all these challenges all sitting squarely on your shoulders alone can bring anyone to their knees sometimes.  

Getting out of the echo chamber of your own mind on a regular basis is important.

For members who find themselves wanting the opportunity to bounce ideas off someone or to speak about an ethics or a practice management issue you can speak with solicitors at QLS Solicitor Support. We are free to members and your conversation with us is confidential. Call us on 07 3842 5843 or email ethics@qls.com.au – we are looking forward to hearing from you.
