Trial Lawyer Job Description

Trial Lawyers are experts in litigation, the complex process of resolving criminal or civil disputes in state and the federal courts of law. Some Trial Lawyers also handle administrative claims or disputes for clients before local, state, and federal regulatory agencies, such as a planning commission, environmental agency, or transportation board, etc. These attorneys are highly skilled in preparing cases for trial, evaluating evidence, selecting juries, examining and cross-examining witnesses, negotiating settlements, and presenting arguments before juries or judges. Trial Lawyers may also represent the plaintiff, the party filing a lawsuit, or the defendant in a dispute. In criminal cases, the plaintiff is either the state or federal government and is represented by Trial Lawyers who are known as prosecutors.
