There are many kinds of lawyers out there, so many that it’s difficult to create a list. For starters, an assault lawyer covers assault cases in criminal and civil law, and will be working for both the defense and the prosecution.

A bankruptcy lawyer has the sole aim of helping a person who is legally bankrupt (or even an institution that is legally bankrupt) and is unable to pay off the debts they have accrued. There are many kinds of bankruptcy that a debtor is able to apply for, and hence lawyers are required to ensure that their representative gets a deal that is in their interests.

A workers compensation lawyer is just another. These cover medical care for employees in the case that they suffer an injury in work and are trying to claim compensation. Workers compensation lawyers deal with the legal issues that can arise, like in the case that the employer does not want to pay up for the accident they caused.

Given the huge variety of law out there, there are many kinds of lawyer to consider. For every kind of area of law you may be able to think of, whether it’s divorce, criminal damage, health insurance or fraud, you can be sure that there is a specialized attorney available to help.

Lawyers will generally specialize in one area thanks to their studies at university. The different areas of law are diverse, and for every issue that may become involved with the law, you can near enough be sure that there is a lawyer to help you. If you’re looking for a list, it may take a while!
