Criminal Lawyer Skills

Criminal lawyers must have excellent oral and written advocacy skills in order to argue a client's case before a judge and persuade a jury. Investigative and research skills are also important in building a client's case and establishing a strong defense. Criminal lawyers must also have strong creative thinking and analytical skills to develop a legal strategy, analyze case law and litigate complex cases.

Criminal lawyers must also have an in-depth understanding of state, federal and local rules, court procedures, evidentiary laws and local judges to navigate the criminal justice system efficiently and competently. In addition, excellent interpersonal skills are necessary to build a strong client-attorney relationship. Criminal defendants are a finicky group who sometimes go through many lawyers before settling on one they like. Therefore, the ability to attract and retain clients is essential to a thriving criminal defense practice.
