Duties & Responsibilities

  1. Interview new clients and meet with existing clients to render legal advice.
  2. Perform legal research to determine how the facts of a case interact with current law.
  3. Perform case research by taking depositions, attending site inspections, and engaging in discovery, the exchange of information pertinent to a case from both parties to the action.
  4. Argue motions and attend other pretrial court appearances before a judge.
  5. Draft legal documents including pleadings, discovery, motions, briefs, contracts, and wills.
  6. Follow up after a court decision has been handed down or a settlement has been reached, ensuring that all parties to an action do what they’ve been committed or ordered to do.

Skills & Competencies

  1. Exceptional oral and written communication skills: Many cases are won or lost based on written submissions to the court before a lawyer ever appears in front of a judge. Strong oral skills are required for court appearances.
  2. Analytical skills: It’s crucial to determine if a case is winnable from the start and advise clients accordingly.
  3. Empathy and compassion: Clients are coming to you because they have a problem they need you to sort out. Rarely are you meeting them at the best times of their lives.
  4. Honesty and trustworthiness: Lawyers must also follow strict ethical guidelines and client confidentiality rules.
