Of all the professional types whose appearance can influence business success, few have to stay on top of their game more than attorneys.
Yes, you expect a nice suit or a nice skirt on your lawyer. But attorneys in standard business wear are a dime a dozen. The most successful of them combine “nice” with perfect accessories and attitudes that say, I’m not just doing this because of my job. I look this good all the time!
“Let’s face it, human nature being what it is, when we pay attention to looks, looks matter,” says Susan Powell, a licensed clinical psychologist and principal with New York-based jury consultants Strategic Litigation Research. “And an attorney who doesn’t look right is an attorney who will not have the confidence of his client … or, possibly, a jury.”
