What is the difference between a trial lawyer and a defense lawyer?

They are the both attorneys. However a trial lawyer generally has more experience and more expertise in a court of law. Many defense lawyers have assisted with a trial or have watched a trial but there are a select few attorneys that are not afraid to take their case to trial and defend their clients in a courtroom before a jury or a judge. At the Law Office of Daniel P. Flores we have an attorney that has significant DUI trial experience and will represent you from the first stage of court all the way to the completion of a jury trial if it is determined to be your best option. Not every case is a jury trial case. However, an attorney that has jury trial experience can be more familiar with a court and its procedures including familiarity with staff, judges, and prosecutors. A trial lawyer does not mean all their cases go to trial. It just means you have an attorney that is going to fight for you and has the skill to defend you in many different ways for the best results.
