Litigation attorneys represent criminal clients as well as individuals or real estate firms filing claims, which are described as civil issues. Also, the role of these attorneys is to prepare cases presented to them for trials. However, 90 percent of the cases presented does not reach trial. Most of them are settled out of the courtroom. When it comes to criminal proceedings, the defendants are usually recommended to take the option of a plea deal. For the case of personal injury, civil issues, and real estate cases, the plaintiff is usually recommended to accept a settlement.Most of the civil litigation attorneys are employed in law firms. Some of them have the option of working in the boutique firms or open their private firm. Superior law firms have sub-departments for real estate, business, and patents, as well as litigation department. Apart from being employed in the private sectors, litigation attorneys can also work in the government. Government litigators work as district attorneys and prosecutors. Civil Litigators can also work for the municipalities and various offices of the Attorney General of the United State of America. Also, corporations are big employment institutions that can afford to employ litigators. Same with insurance companies, big banks, and financial institutions. In that case, big companies have a large staff comprising of senior and junior attorneys.
The first step that is usually taken by a litigation attorney is the investigative work. This is carried out after picking up a new case. The process involves the collection of documents such as medical records and witness statements. It is the responsibility of the attorney and the legal staff to find the relevant information that can strengthen the case. Once relevant details are put in place, legal representatives of both parties come together for the purpose of reaching a settlement. Therefore, if both parties reach a settlement agreement, then both sides will save a lot of money. However, if the parties cannot reach a settlement, then the litigator will have no option but to draft necessary pleadings and motions that can be presented to the court.
