“Strategically placed humor is something that is very important, and something, actually, we don’t talk about that much,” says Roberta “Bobbi” Liebenberg, a senior partner with Fine, Kaplan and Black in Philadelphia in an ABA Journal Asked and Answered: Lived and Learned podcast.

Humor can certainly drive home a point and engage a judge and jury at trial, Liebenberg says. But a fun-filled workplace culture can also increase productivity and loyalty.

“Research also shows that people who are humorous are consistently evaluated as more confident and more competent,” Liebenberg says.
