Cassidy Gordon is a Candidate Attorney at Witz Inc. law firm in Rosebank, Johannesburg, where shepractices as a member of the firm’s Commercial and Civil Litigation Department.
Cassidy completed her LLB and Bachelor of Commerce in Law with marketing at the University of Witwatersrand, and is completing her articles at Witz Inc. No stranger to public debate,Cassidy distinguished herself during her formative years as a public speaker and performer at the Speech and Drama College of South Africa. She also matriculated as deputy head girl of her high school and served as the Mini Mayor of Johannesburg.
“Witz Inc. is utterlyunique,” says Cassidy. “The culture here is really unlike anything else I’ve encountered, and I’m thrilled to be part of the team. My mentors, Daniel Witz and Dani Shein are deeply inspiring and although there’s a steep learning curve and a serious work ethic, it’s balanced with sincere engagement, support, and openness. Daniel Witz is one of the most astute and analytical people I’ve ever met, and his depth of knowledge and expertise are frankly astounding.” Further, Dani Shein’s calculated approach, meticulous attention to detail, and attentiveness to each and every client is something to aspire toward.
Cassidy says that Witz Inc. is a law firm that takes an “above and beyond” approach to dealing with clients and providing unmatched service.
“We’re client-centred,which means we offer tailor-made solutions that are designed for the bestpossible outcome – and there’s an entire team of experts working toward that outcome.”
An Innovative Approach to Law Practice
“Witz Inc. is not astuffy, traditional law firm,” says Cassidy. “It’s modern, dynamic, and seeks to offer clients outstanding legal representation that is clear, direct, and highly personable. From the moment they first walk in, our clients realise this, and they’re reassured by the fact that there’s a personal interest taken in every single matter brought to us.”
Cassidy has worked as private tutor specialising in skills development related to writing, organisational skills, and time management, and this stands her in good stead. She has also performed work at the Wits Law Clinic as part of her studies andinterned at It’s OK, an app designed to foster the mental health and wellbeing of students.
“Growing up, I was surrounded by entrepreneurial influences and worked odd jobs wherever I could,”says Cassidy. “Because of that, I feel I have an affinity for business and industry, which is why I’ve chosen to focus on commercial law – it aligns strongly with my interests and skills. The mindset I developed because of that interest enables me to build solid relationships with corporate clients. I can better understand their industry considerations in order to offer them the verybest solutions.”
For Cassidy, engaging her legal skills to benefit those she serves is not an abstract concept. Having lost her father due to a medical misdiagnosis while she was still a teen – andwitnessing her mother’s struggle to obtain justice in the aftermath – motivates Cassidy enormously.
