Critical Thinking and Creativity
Critical thinking and creativity are two skills I developed as an attorney. They helped me analyze problems, identify legal issues, create creative legal strategies and solutions, such as well-written reports and persuasive petitions.
Data and Information Analysis
Data analysis was an important skill I developed that led me to identify potential legal issues. I am able to transfer this skill to the business world and as a result offer business intelligence services to my clients using data analysis skills to identify trends and patterns in data and information analysis skills to synthesize and analyze complex information .
Attention to Detail and Problem Solving
In order to analyze legal and business documents, identify possible problems and solutions, make informed decisions, and create accurate and comprehensive legal briefs, contracts, and reports, I pay close attention to detail and have a strong problem-solving skills.
I can gather and analyze information through in-depth research on a variety of legal topics, including case law, statutes, rules, and legal precedents, in order to create a compelling legal case. I can rapidly recognize pertinent legal issues, ascertain the benefits and drawbacks of various arguments, and evaluate the likely outcomes of a legal matter by conducting thorough research. I can also do study on a variety of non-legal subjects, like business or industry-specific procedures, technical or scientific data, or financial information.
Having over 20 years of experience writing reports and petitions -- legal briefs, pleadings, and other documents necessary to the legal process were once things I used to produce --, I can adapt my writing to various contexts and audiences.
Communication and Teamwork
Through my work as an attorney, I learned how to explain difficult legal concepts to clients, coworkers, and judges. I have the skills to actively listen, probe, and adjust my communication approach according to the audience.
Time management and Adaptability
Given that legal work frequently includes numerous cases and deadlines, I learned to effectively manage my time, prioritize my duties, and adhere to deadlines. As the business environment can also be unpredictable and call for rapid thinking and adjustment, I am also flexible and able to work in a fast-paced environment that is constantly changing.
Interpersonal Skills and Negotiation
I can establish a rapport with clients and colleagues, resolve conflicts, and negotiate successfully because I have good interpersonal skills.
