International Women’s Day – Role Models

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated yearly on the 8March across the world.

Having been founded over more than a century ago, it was a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

International Women’s Day is a celebration of women’s social, economic, political achievements and a call for gender equality.

It’s a day we celebrate all Women and those who we consider a personal role model and inspiring.

Joplin Lawyers – For you, For the Region, For the Issues that matter.

Joplin Lawyers was established in 2013.  Originally starting as one office located in Singleton, Joplin Lawyers has now grown to multiple offices located across the Upper Hunter region.

Joplin Lawyers is a female empowered law firm and we specialise in Family Law and Domestic Violence.  We like to think that we don’t just solve problems, but we search for long term solutions.

Our Director, Joplin Higgins has grown this business from strength to strength, in what is generally considered a male dominated field.

It is our passion to provide our clients with five-star care, we are compassionate, and we strive to give back to the community.

At Joplin Lawyers we believe that what matters to you, personally matters to all of us at Joplin Lawyers.

Why I consider Joplin a powerful role model.

I believe that our director and fearless leader Joplin Higgins embodies what it means to be a powerful woman.

As someone who has worked in various law firm’s across NSW, I find Joplin Lawyers to be a female empowered law firm, who support their staff.  From my very first day at Joplin Lawyers I was taught that as a woman my voice matters and is heard.

I work very closely with Joplin and can honestly say she inspires me every day.  I am constantly feeling challenged in my role with Joplin Lawyers and this alone, along with Joplin’s never-ending support has pushed me to further my skills and start my degree at University this year majoring in Marketing.  This is something I have always been passionate about.

Joplin’s outlook and the positivity she brings to not only her staff, but clients in their time of need the most is something I think she brings to the table that sets her apart from the rest.

Failure is not a word we hear often from Joplin, we are taught to learn from our mistakes and be the best version of ourselves possible.  A role model is someone who you look up to and aspire to be.

Testimonies from the staff at Joplin Lawyers

Before I started working for Joplin, I perceived her as such a powerful and inspiring woman. Her confidence and advocacy for women is what motivated me to work for Joplin and her Team.

I now realise that Joplin is so much more than a strong female Lawyer. She is so empowering and is such a positive female role model, who encourages everyone around her to aspire for more.  I am proud of Joplin and what she has built. She has already broken the mould in the Legal Industry and will continue to make history.

I absolutely love working for Joplin and I look forward to working with her as she continues to stand for women in Australia and the world.

Amber Wright – Practice Manager

I first met Joplin approximately two and a half years ago when I began working at Joplin Lawyers.

I work directly with Joplin in our Singleton office and have learnt tremendously from her professionally.

Joplin is passionate about helping victims of domestic violence and family law clients.

Above all this is her generosity – to her staff, to her clients and to the community.  She is a force of nature who is always the first to support community events.

How lucky am I to have an amazing boss lady as my friend.

Thanks, Joplin, for being an empowering women and thanks for being a true friend.
