TRIAL LAWYER VS. LITIGATOR
I am a trial lawyer. That is to say that I go to battle for my clients by standing before juries and passionately explaining to them why my client is right and the other side is wrong. Because of my background, I am able to do this successfully in both criminal and civil cases. A litigator, on the other hand, is someone who specializes in all the legal issues that lead up to trial without actually going to trial. He or she can be quite experienced in dealing with all manner of motions and/or legal tactics that ultimately delay getting the case into the hands of the group that matters the most: the jury. As a client, it’s important to know who you want fighting for you. Think in terms of a boxing match: no one sends the coach or agent into the ring to fight the battle. Always, it’s the person who can hit the hardest who stands in the center when the bell rings. The same is true for trial lawyers versus litigators. Cases handled by litigators often wind up settling for something less than what they should because the lawyer is unwilling or unable to go the extra mile that is necessarily in order to achieve the best possible result for the client. Insurance adjusters and prosecutors are rarely concerned about litigators because they know the lawyer will ultimately resolve the case before it ever reaches a jury; thus, they never have to face the justice a jury would give. On the other hand, prosecutors and adjusters will often work to resolve cases against true trial lawyers because they know they could get beaten badly at trial.
