Diana Cohen Publishes Article in Daily Report

AGG Associate Diana Rusk Cohen published an article titled “First weeks on job were ‘a crash course in juvenile law’” in the December 19, 2011, edition of the Daily Report (subscription may be required to view). Ms. Cohen describes her first experiences as an attorney—working as a deferred law firm associate with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Association’s One Child, One Lawyer program. Representing a four-year-old-boy in the termination of his drug-addicted mother’s parental rights, Ms. Cohen learned valuable lessons about listening closely to clients’ wishes, putting oneself in clients’ shoes and understanding both the immediate issues and bigger picture surrounding a clients’ case and needs.
