Top 10 Characteristics Of The Best Attorneys In The World

  1. Never Admitting Weakness

This is probably one of the most important components of being a good attorney. It is literally hard-wired into the legal system
that if an attorney admits weakness, they are in trouble.

When I am representing an attorney as a recruiter, I have noticed that if the attorney ever admits any sort of weakness – or plays themself down he or she generally has a difficult, if not impossible, time getting a job. Employers and the public do not want weak attorneys with various limitations.

When good attorneys go to court, their job is to put on a strong face for their client – even if their client is an accused axe murderer. It is expected that good attorneys will be a strong advocate for their clients. If an attorney admits their own weakness, how can they be expected to protect the interests of a client?

I have noticed over and over again that the top notch attorneys will constantly refuse to admit any sort of weakness – even when caught red-handed having done something totally inappropriate. They simply clam up and refuse to offer comments. In contrast, a lesser attorney will instinctively seek to justify their actions. The best attorneys simply refuse to acknowledge mistakes or weakness. This is what is expected.
