Civil Litigation Lawyers

Outlook

Employment for lawyers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Employment should also be good for the specialty of civil litigation law. The field of litigation is relatively recession proof. People will always be in need of trial lawyers to help them address grievances with contractors, health care providers, landlords, employers, and any other individual, company, or organization that they believe has wronged them. The National Center for State Courts reports that Americans filed about 17 million civil lawsuits in state courts and approximately 259,000 civil lawsuits in federal district courts, which suggests that there will be steady demand for experienced civil litigation lawyers with a proven track record of achieving success for clients.
