What we look for in Attorneys.

When we look to hire attorneys we expect no less from them than we do from ourselves. It not only makes us cohesive, but guides us in our daily work.

Even if we aren't your attorneys, we suspect you may find these guidelines useful.

Attorneys need to:

  1.  Know who they are, what they fight for, and how to take criticism;
  2. Listen to both what you say with words and non-verbal cues;
  3. Always question effectively;
  4. Understand feelings and communicate them well.
  5. Be assertive, press the matter in a compelling manner and sell an idea through clarity;
  6. Understand that bad things happen and Murphy's Law hits hard, and attack problems with realistic optimism, bouncing back and learning with every punch.
