VIDEO: What is the Difference Between Trial Lawyers and Attorneys?

Featured Video Play Icon

People often confuse the terms “trial lawyers” and “attorneys,” but the difference is easily found with a few simple details.

Attorneys are all those with law degrees and a practicing license from a bar association.

But being a trial lawyer is different. Per the Princeton Review, a trial lawyer’s job is to persuade a jury of the facts in a case, and to display them in a way that best supports their client’s position.

Being a trial lawyer means you have:

  • Faced opposition
  • Gone to trial numerous times
  • Produced great results

At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, a leading medical malpractice and personal injury firm, we believe trial lawyers need to pay attention to both the client’s short-term and long-term needs. It’s not meant to be a quick relationship. Hiring a trial lawyer with experience is something you should look for because a trial’s results can last a client a lifetime.

For best results, our recommendation is to select a trial lawyer who has experience, a proven track record and knows how to communication with both the jury and judges.
