UPDATED May 25th, 2017 – Karl Heideck recently published a “Guide to Becoming a Successful Lawyer”. Read the full guide here.
Among the careers in law is litigation. It involves the representation of the plaintiff and the defendant in civil cases. A litigator, therefore, represents the plaintiff and the defendant before the judge. The litigators are in charge of the process of taking a case to court and seeing to it that it has come to a completion. A litigator handles several phases of a court case including pre-trial, discovery and also arguing the case for their clients in the trial. This practice depends on whether the litigator operates as an individual practitioner at a large firm, or at a small firm.
At large firms, a starting litigator does a lot of research and also writes memos. The exposure that a lawyer gains is arguing or even observing from the gallery. Once the trial is complete, the litigator handles the settlement of the case. If there happens that the other side files an appeal, the litigator will take care of it too.
