Sorry, Edison: for lawyers, it's 99% preparation.
Janet Ellen Raasch's "How to 'pitch' your legal services: The preparation factor" on her blog Constant Content.

Most of the time, winning comes from just being prepared, from knowing what the client needs, from knowing what your own firm can do, from articulating -- in terms the client understands -- how you can help them achieve their business objectives. This post (and parts one and two in the same series) provide good, practical, advice on doing just that.
