If you have dreams of becoming a lawyer and your mind is filled with images of trials, witnesses and every courtroom drama you've ever seen on television, then you're thinking of becoming a litigator.
Litigation can be an exciting career. It certainly is a demanding one. America is the most litigious country in the world, with hundreds of lawsuits filed every few minutes. The American court system is complicated and very few people enter into a lawsuit without a lawyer by their side. The litigator's job is to navigate the legal system and interpret the relevant laws, to ensure the fair treatment of, and try to obtain the best result for, her client.
