Being well-spoken is an underrated quality, especially if that is coupled with the requisite client-management skills.

I am also mediocre at best in terms of law, but i've managed to do well for myself because i am effectively bilingual, well-spoken in both languages and can handle difficult clients (it is still a pain, don't get me wrong).

It is erroneous to think that soft skills are any less valuable. It is a very Singaporean frame of mind.
