What is the key to a successful legal practice? Or what are the measures to evaluate a successful lawyer?

Such questions may be asked by numerous people but in different forms and as a result we shall have different forms of answers.

Some might say it is he/she who makes the larger income, some will say it’s the one who has the legal background and the legal knowledge to assist him/her to accomplish the job required with the best of results.

Some will say it’s the one who stays loyal to one’s clients and principles regardless of any material considerations, others might insist upon the developments occur to the lawyer’s whether materially or legally in order to achieve the best of results.
