Strategic Dressing Tips for Attorneys

Make a statement in the courtroom. An Image That Will Win the Case Every Time Before you utter a single word, your clothing has already spoken for you. As an attorney, you need to prepare your

wardrobe with the same attention to detail with which you prepare your case. Whether you are consulting with a client, negotiating with adversaries, or standing before the bench, you will always be under close scrutiny.

A Good “Law Suit”

Your clients and the jury have a preconceived notion of how a lawyer should appear.  It is important to fulfill their expectations.  Your wardrobe should cloak you with an aura of confidence, projecting the assertiveness they anticipate.  Proper dress goes a long way towards assuring your clients that they have made a wise choice in seeking your counsel.

Dressing Strategically

By combining different fabrics, colors, textures, and styles, your wardrobe can communicate significantly different messages.  Choosing the right mix for a particular situation will critically affect its outcome.  Whether you are counseling a client or dominating the courtroom, your attire can offer powerful, strategic advantages.

Dressing to your advantage depends largely on your area of concentration.

A malpractice attorney trying a case uses different dressing dynamics than does an eldercare attorney consulting with a senior couple.  Also, since jurors vary demographically and socio-economically, and you try cases in various venues, you will note that each area of law requires different dressing techniques.

Tomorrow – “Seeing is Believing”. Learn how the most subtle change in your color scheme can yield great psychological responses.
