Carol Cochrane

Carol Cochrane has been with the law firm of Low, Murchison Radnoff LLP since her call to the Bar many moons ago (although back at that time, it was just “Low Murchison.”) Carol restricts her practice to the field of family law, maintaining a mix of matrimonial litigation, domestic contract negotiations, mediation and arbitration. This year marks Carol’s fifth and final year serving as the moderator of the Fabulous Spousal Support Panel. Why final you ask? Well, after 35 years with LMR, Carol has decided to join the ranks of the unemployed at the end of this year, with the plan being for her to enjoy her retirement as much as she has her years of family law practice in Ottawa.

Doron Gold

He is a Registered Social Worker, Certified Professional Coach and psychotherapist, as well as having previously practiced law for 10 years, primarily as a family and civil litigator. Prior to working at Homewood Health, Doron spent almost 7 years working at the Ontario Lawyers’ Assistance Program (OLAP). Doron assists lawyers, paralegals, law students, judges and their immediate family members with personal and professional issues such as addiction, depression, anxiety and career stress. Doron’s role at Homewood Health includes psychotherapy with clients, assisting with the ongoing management of Homewood’s peer volunteer program as well as providing workshops and presentations to various groups in the community. Doron has written and been quoted extensively in publications such as Lawyers’ Weekly, Law Times, Canadian Lawyer and LawPro Magazine on various topics related to lawyer distress and wellness. As well, Doron writes a regular bi-monthly “Lawyer Therapist” column in Law Times.
