What Is A "Trial Lawyer"?

Every lawyer who has ever been in trial has dreamed of that "Perry Mason" moment, the moment when the dangerous hostile witness is being cross-examined, is evading the questions, and is about to walk off the witness stand having committed perjury, and just at that moment, the lawyer asks the witness that one question that shatters the witness' facade, and exposes him as the liar that he is. This is the moment that trial lawyers dream of.

So what exactly is a trial lawyer? Simply put, a trial lawyer is any attorney who, at least occasionally, makes his or her living by being an advocate in a courtroom. Just as there are many different types of doctors, there are many different types of lawyers. Some lawyers never step foot into a courtroom in their entire professional careers. Lawyers who draft wills and contracts, for example, are on that end of the spectrum. On the other end of the spectrum are criminal defense lawyers or, their opposite, prosecutors. These lawyers can be found in court nearly every day. They are trial laywers. Somewhere in the middle you can find the civil trial lawyers. These are lawyers who deal with cases ranging from car accidents to personal injury to business disputes to employment matters to wrongful death. These attorneys also spend a considerable time in the court and in trial. They too are trial lawyers.

Personal injury trial lawyers frequently find themselves fighting hostile insurance companies and corporations. Because these corporations are so rich, they command armies of lawyers to do their bidding and help them get away with evil. As a result, these personal injury lawyers must be able to think quickly on their feet, ask piercing questions of hostile witnesses as slippery and slimy as eels, and be able to withstand tremendous pressure while needing to keep their cool. These lawyers stand up to corporate and other bullies.

Please contact a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at the Lagstein Law Firm if you need an advocate to stand up for for your rights.
