Compatibility be linked with someone with shared interests, experience or practice area

Confidentiality high value placed on trust, honesty and openness

Impartiality talk to a lawyer outside your immediate work environment

Empathy learn from someone who understands what you're going through

Flexibility choose how and when to interact and what you will discuss
