Legal Practice Areas
While all credentialed and licensed attorneys are required to understand the basics of all kinds of law, particularly that which pertains to their state, attorneys specialize in one or more legal topics, often referred to as practice areas. For instance, criminal defense attorneys specifically represent criminal defendants; tax attorneys often work exclusively on tax-related matters; and personal injury lawyers represent plaintiffs and/or defendants in lawsuits. Some practice areas are so broad that lawyers tend to focus on specific subcategories, such as asbestos claims or child support.
