Legal skills are the single most important attribute clients consider when they are hiring and evaluating their law firms.

Your Legal Skills are only interesting to clients if you can apply those skills to their unique situations and needs. Whether pitching a new client or responding to RFPs for new matters, talk about your skills in a client-focused manner by discussing key issues your client faces.
