As with creative writing or playing an instrument, in legal advocacy you have to find your own voice.

Learn by observing others, but also recognize that imitation will only take you so far. You dilute what you have to offer by pretending to be someone else.

Advocacy allows for a wide array of personality types, as long as you are willing to ask the necessary tough questions. Develop an advocacy style that is consistent with your personality and your values.
