Adishian Law Group, P.C. founder and California Attorney Chris Adishian describe what skills are most necessary to be a successful lawyer.
It’s kind of interesting, a Berkeley study identified several factors, and they talked about situational judgement, dispositional optimism, emotion recognition. And we’d like to add, probably to that, creative problem solving and high tolerance for ambiguity and chaos. Because the inherent nature of litigation is chaotic, and even with the transactional negotiation, the other side’s positions can sometimes be ambiguous. So, in order to be successful at it, you have to be able to work in those environments and still achieve good results for your clients, and hopefully we bring some of those skills to benefit for our clients.
