This level of experience comes with time. But it also comes by having the ability to listen and learn. If you're less experienced, soak in the environment around you: 1) Listen to colleagues as they discuss cases and strategies; 2) Take notes at meetings and then do internet research on the key words or topics that you weren't familiar with; 3) Watch webinars on legal topics; and 4) If you're lucky enough to have a seasoned, knowledgeable paralegal in your office, ask her to mentor you.
