Typically, non-glossy. Although I suppose it doesn't matter a tremendous amount when traveling on a plane, train, boat, etc.
Since you're asking about "professional work as a lawyer," I'm guessing you're either a lawyer, or are at least on the way to becoming one.
If you're already a lawyer, surely you can look around and see what sort of briefcase is generally deemed desirable by your colleagues. Even if you're not yet a lawyer, if you're near enough to that point that you're figuring out which briefcase to buy, I'm guessing you occasionally come into contact with lawyers, and can, again, simply look and figure out what sort of briefcases they favor.
But in my experience, non-glossy is usually the way to go.
