Are all Attorneys Trial Lawyers?
March 6th, 2020
No. Trial lawyers are those who appear before courts and administrative agencies to represent people, entities or the government. Most legal matters are managed without the need to appear in court. As a result, most lawyers are not directly involved in litigation. This is an important factor to understand when you’re choosing an attorney as the type of attorney that you choose could greatly impact the outcome of your case. Trial lawyers bring different skills to the table and because any matter might eventually end up in court, a trial lawyer can implement a strategy early on in a case that will benefit their client in the future if the matter goes to trial. Hiring a lawyer is an important personal matter, so it is vital that you learn as much as possible about your attorney and law firm that will represent you beforehand.
Responsibilities of a Trial Lawyer
Trial lawyers / litigators are responsible for filing lawsuits, gathering evidence, conducting research, meeting with clients, filing and arguing motions, in addition to presenting the case in front of a judge and/or jury. They make opening and closing statements in trials, ask questions to witnesses and present evidence to the court during the trial proceedings. Trial lawyers need to be persuasive, eloquent, have a good understanding of the rules of court procedure and determine how to best present evidence and the client’s case to the court.
