This week, we asked our seasoned legal resources to advise new lawyers looking to establish themselves in the legal field. Upon graduation, it can be quite overwhelming to figure out which direction you would like to take your career and which path to take to make it happen.

We received a wide array of tips from our lawyers based on their experience building their career. Most lawyers agreed on a few key points, however. Namely, the importance of relationships. Strong relationships are key for attaining clients, starting a firm, and interacting with other lawyers.

Below, we’ve awarded the comments we found most valuable. Check back later in the week for our followup article.
