An attorney or legal counselor is an individual who practices law, either as an attorney, solicitor, attorney in private practice, barrister, public defender, court representative, barrister, notary public, pro Bono, public defender, and/or barrister. An attorney can practice in family law matters such as divorce, adoption, annulment, property division, juvenile, felonies, and even wrongful death cases. An attorney practicing law will argue the cases for his clients and will argue their causes in family courts, and he will use legal documents, including pleadings, writs, affidavits, discovery requests, and briefs, to assist his client in arguing their cases in court. He will also be the one to prepare and file documents as needed and will make sure that his client receives the best defense possible.
Attorneys practice law in a variety of specialties including criminal law, family law, corporate law, labor law and pro Bono law. If you are interested in becoming an attorney you must pursue a bar exam. The American Bar Association or ABA offers study guides, preparation lessons, mock tests, and mock exams on their website. You can register for the bar exam online and receive official notice of eligibility upon completion of your course. This will allow you to begin working immediately after you have passed the bar exam.
Once you have successfully passed the bar examination, you will be able to enroll in an accredited law school. Attorneys in all states must practice law in order to be lawyers.
