The Queensland Law Society (QLS) interviewed Terry O’Gorman, a QLS Senior Counsellor and the Legal Director at Robertson O’Gorman, on his experience and motivations surrounding his role as a Senior Counsellor.

Mr O’Gorman accepted the request to become a QLS Senior Counsellor because he felt it was important, particularly for younger practitioners, to be able to have access to advice from experienced lawyers.

Mr O’Gorman expressed the importance of the availability of professional and ethical guidance to young practitioners. He said he generally receives inquiries from young solicitors seeking advice on issues they haven’t encountered before, such as conflicts of interest.

Mr O’Gorman emphasised that, particularly in criminal law, it is extremely important that young lawyers seek advice to novel problems before making important decisions.
