Many people, including attorneys, will try to convince the public that your attorney must be a specialist and focus in only one practice area in order to achieve the best result possible. I believe that this advice is incorrect in many respects. While I believe that strict specialization is preferable in some practice areas such as intellectual property, patent law, and estates and trusts, there are really only two “types” of attorneys that one needs to be familiar with: litigation attorneys (trial attorneys) and non-litigation (or transactional) attorneys.
There are many excellent attorneys that are uncomfortable going to trial. Their greatest skill may not be persuading a judge or jury; it may be drafting complex contracts, negotiating large financial transactions or administrating complex estates and trusts.
If your legal dispute may require a trial, please give me a call. I am a litigation attorney.
