When you are looking for legal representation, you want a great lawyer who will work to achieve the best possible result. But how to identify an attorney committed to excellence? Here are four qualities that will help you find a great attorney.
This is the foundation of a great lawyer’s work. Having an attorney who’s knowledgeable about their area of practice increases considerably your chances of success. This is also a sign that a lawyer is passionate about his work and therefore will be willing to go the extra mile if necessary.
Very few cases are slam-dunks, so a realistic approach is one of the hallmarks of a great (and honest) lawyer. A knowledgeable attorney will help you make sense of your options. And if there are good chances of success, they will let you know so with a cautiously optimistic framing that will keep you grounded and centered.
Needless to say, a great lawyer knows how to build a persuasive argument. But being a good communicator is more than being articulated. Communication goes both ways, so a good communicator is also a good listener. Great lawyers know how to convey their ideas, but they are also aware of the fact that there are moments when their most important task is listening to their clients.
A great lawyer combines a diverse array of hard and soft skills. While communication falls within the realm of soft skills, critical thinking is the ultimate hard skill. Great lawyers know how to analyze statements and situations, and poke holes even in arguments that seem water-tight. This is the type of lawyer you definitely want on your side, as they have the right skill set to make a difference in court.
