Very good advice.
And the award for quote of the year:
"Some of the people who have been practicing for years are still just as clueless as you are."

Carolyn Elefant

This is great advice. It is gratifying to see a young lawyer realize the importance of appearing professional in a professional setting. Too often lawyers, particularly those who work for themselves believe that they can dress the way they want because "I'm my own boss." In truth, it's not about us, but our clients - and how we dress can impact our client's interests.

They say that success is sweetest when you started from the bottom and reached it through hard work, dedication and perseverance. It's a great piece of advice for starting lawyers. More newbies should read your piece. :)
