Boot Camp, Esq.

Ask Allison

By Allison Jackson Mathis

Dear Allison,

I am a new lawyer, and I am struggling with what to wear to court and what to encourage my clients wear to court. Is it always strictly formal? Most of my clients don’t own suits and ties. Some of them don’t even own a collared shirt. And what about courtroom attire for ladies? Any advice appreciated.

Always Yours, Sartorially Stymied
