There is no fixed recipe that will guide young lawyers in developing the skills and knowledge necessary to become successful lawyers. Many years of practice, however, teach that certain traits, practices and proficiencies help attorneys develop both professionally and personally. Lawyers who incorporate these behaviors into their everyday work experiences will find greater satisfaction in everything they do, which ultimately will translate into better service to clients and open the door for developing and cultivating client relationships.

Professionalism must drive everything an attorney does in his or her legal career. Colleagues expect it, and clients demand it. It is critical that attorneys demonstrate a level of excellence that goes above and beyond commercial considerations and legal requirements.
