Anyone who wants to be a good lawyer needs to be able to speak clearly and listen carefully. Not only do they need to be able to argue convincingly in court, they also need to be able to speak confidently in public. However, communication is done more than just verbally. When making legal documents, lawyers should also be able to write clearly and convincingly. Your new lawyer should make you feel that they understand you and should be able to explain any legal processes to you in simple but effective terms. 

Good judgment

You have to rely on your lawyer to make good judgments. They should be able to draw reasonable and logical conclusions from the information that you give them. You should be able to trust that they can make critical judgments in complex legal areas. This skill should also provide them with the ability to pick holes in the arguments of the opposition. You won’t be able to relax if you do not trust your lawyer to make your decisions in a legal context. 

Research skills

This is a crucial skill for any lawyer to have. One of the main objectives of your lawyer is to sift through a vast amount of complex information and pick out valuable pieces of evidence for your case. This will help them prepare legal strategies and help them to distill the information to you. They should not be put out by a lot of information in a case. They should relish the opportunity to go through it all and use their research skills. 

People skills

This may not seem important for a lawyer, but it really is. There is no science to the law and often in a case, it can come down to who is the most likable. Someone who presents a case but is robotic does not often win the case. Someone more charismatic will often have a better chance. Also, it will help you to be more open with your lawyer if you are comfortable with them and they are personable. Make sure you get on with your lawyer. It will help you in the long run. 


There are lots of things to consider when hiring a lawyer. The important thing is that you can trust them. Make sure that you get on with them and that they talk you through the legal processes simply and to your speed.
