Litigation attorney do represent criminals and organization or firms filing personal injury claims, but most of the time they are engaged in civil issues. And of these cases, most (around 90%) won’t see a court trial but be settled out of court. In fact, this is often the case no matter what. Most of all legal cases will be settled by the attorneys of both sides out of court. The firms that these lawyers come from will be of varying sizes. The largest of these firms will have litigation departments.
The attorneys that will represent cases also come from both public and private sectors, with most working in the private. The bigger the business, the more attorneys from the private sector that they will hire. Some of these business might even have a department of litigators on full time staff. Those that work for public organizations such as municipalities or the U.S. Attorney’s office are called civil litigators. No matter where an attorney comes from, whether a big or small organization in the public or private sector, a case always begins with some good investigation into the matter at hand.
