Karl Heideck began his blog post article on litigation attorneys by describing in what cases they are utilized. Litigation attorneys can handle cases for real estate companies, corporations and individuals seeking compensation for damages. The bulk of the cases handled by litigation attorneys are civil cases. This is one one party sues another party for damages.
Mr. Karl Heideck says that the vast majority of litigation instigated by litigation attorneys are settled out of court. About 90% of cases, says Karl Heideck do not go to trial. Real estate, corporate and personal injury cases often end in a settlement. This is when one party pays the other for damages or compensation. In a criminal litigation, the litigation attorneys will often request and accept a plea bargain. This will often be a reduced or limited sentence.
A civil litigator will most frequently be working for a law firm that has a bunch of attorneys working for them. After getting some experience at a law firm, a litigation lawyer may decide to start up his own practice. Additionally, there are law firms that only specialize in ligation. They can be furthermore broken down into litigation area specialties such as personal injury litigation, corporate malpractice, real estate litigation and criminal litigation.
Karl Heideck also points out in his article that some litigators work in the public sector. District attorneys or DAs are litigation attorneys that can work on the county level. US. district attorneys and other criminal government prosecutors are additional examples of litigation lawyers that work in the public sphere. Mr. Heideck also points out that some major corporations in the financial and insurance industry may actually have their own litigation departments.
