Kwende Jones Featured on Podcast Discussing “Value of Civility and Professionalism within Litigation”
In this episode, Atlanta partner Kwende Jones joins Matt Thiry to discuss the unnecessarily combative nature of litigation and the tendency to reject compromise and common ground as a way to resolve disputes.
Their discussion sheds light on the barriers to civility that are often unrecognized including, the psychological advantages and disadvantages in the concept of winning or losing, lawyers who are too personally involved in their client’s matter, and client expectations on how to interact with opposing counsel. The conversation between Kwende and Matt makes current and future litigators aware that there is hope and a positive way forward that meets the need of both the attorney and the client.
