A Litigator has a career in the field of law but being such an enormous field the job description has a lot of options. A Litigator is responsible for the representation of defendants and plaintiffs in civil law cases. They can be involved in all different phases of the process including investigations, trial, settlement, appeals, discovery and pleadings.
A litigator working for a large firm generally starts out writing memos and doing research. Their duties depend on the litigators seniority. Their first appearance in a court room is usually as an observer. They often gain experience arguing in a Small Claims Court. They have a high amount of contact with their opposing counsel as well as their clients. A litigator works a very lengthy day usually spent in a library or sitting at a desk.
A litigator working for a rather small firm or who has chosen to work independently has a different experience. Their days consist of a mix between working in the office, doing research and gaining experience at an actual trial.
The common denominator is the first real trial. That is something no litigator ever forgets. Sometimes months pass between trials but when a trial is in progress a litigator is beyond busy. Most cases will settle outside of court but a litigator still gets a reprieve from research. It is common for a litigator to survive on caffeine, adrenaline and extremely little sleep.
