The Different Types Of Lawyers

By Althaf Ahmed

Today, we can find all types of lawyers to answer whatever legal need we come across with. If you are looking for a specific kind of lawyer or if you are considering a carer in law, here are some of the types of lawyers that we have today to help you out.

1. Asbestos Lawyer

Asbestos lawyers or Mesothelioma lawyers, are those lawyers who represent clients experiencing health problems which resulted from the inhalation of minute asbestos particles. Such clients would include any individual who has been under some level of exposure to small asbestos particles, like those people who have worked or have lived around asbestos. A few examples would be construction and office workers, school children who go to schools that have been constructed with the use of asbestos-containing building materials, as well as those who live in apartment that are considered as toxic buildings.

2. Assault Lawyer


Assault lawyers would be those lawyers who handle various criminal as well as civil assault cases. Criminal assault lawyers or criminal defense lawyers would be those who defend individuals who have been charged with some kind of criminal assault. Civil assault lawyers or personal injury lawyers represent victims of assault and battery so that they would be able to recover the damage for the physical injuries that resulted from the crime.

3. Car Accident Lawyer

If you are the victim of some kind of hit-and-run accident, or have been involved in a vehicle collision, a pedestrian accident or an alcohol or a drug-related incident, a car accident lawyer would be just what you need. This particular type of lawyer would be able to ensure that you would be receiving a fair treatment and compensation from insurance companies and assisting you in the recovery of everything that you are entitles to such as lost wages, pain, sufferring, medical bills, as well as property damages.

4. Bankruptcy Lawyer

If you are in a stage in your life where you are considering filing bankruptcy, a competent bankruptcy lawyer would be able to help you out. He or she would be helping you to evaluate your situation, the available options as well as the best course of action to take before actually filing for it.

5. Criminal Lawyer

Criminal defense lawyers would probably one of the most popular types of lawyers today. This type of lawyer actually has a rather difficult job as he or she represents those individuals who have been accused of a crime, as they make sure that there would be a just trial given to the defendant or to their client.

Some other types of lawyers would be divorce lawyers, employment lawyers, fraud lawyers, medical malpractice lawyers, litigation lawyers, tax lawyers, traffic lawyers, software lawyers and many more.

The above are a few of the common lawyers that people hire on an everyday basis. I would say these are the lawyers that make a major portion of the legal market. There are a few others, which I will cover in a later article.
