What Kind of Lawyer Are You?

What Kind of Lawyer Are You?

“What kind of lawyer are you?” is a question most attorneys get as soon as someone learns of his or her occupation. However, what I didn’t realize until after graduating law school is that many people don’t realize that there are different types of lawyers who specialize in various areas of law. Although there are attorneys who act as general practitioners and deal with a wide variety of law, just like doctors, many of us attorneys have areas of specific expertise in which we practice. To paint a better picture of the legal world, I’ve provided a breakdown of the many areas of law in which attorneys may work and specialize:

  1. General Criminal Law
  2. DUI Law
  3. Personal Injury
  4. Medical Malpractice
  5. Trucking
  6. Consumer
