Basic people skills, patience, understanding, tolerance, concern, hopefull strong moral values (regardless of what most people thing of lawyerly ethics) and so forth. A good work ethic, ability to reason and apply simple logic, good communicator, the ability to 'read the body language' of potential clients is a definite plus, and so on and so on. You also need a very good education at a good college! Glad that I can help, :), -Hayley
