Analytical capabilities concern an attorney’s skill in analyzing a case and creatively applying their legal knowledge. Judgment refers to a lawyer’s ability to discern the major factors that drive the outcome of a case. Communication ability refers to an attorney’s ability to communicate effectively to both clients and the judiciary, and legal experience is an attorney’s overall length of time in the field and representative cases.
