Family law lawyers handle a variety of issues including divorce, child support (and custody), spousal support, and property division. In addition to traditional legal skills, family law often requires lawyers to be very comfortable with negotiation and counseling.
Employment (or Labour) law deals with a broad area of law that determines how employers must treat employees. Lawyers play a role on both the employee and management side of labor relations disputes. A labour relations lawyer will represent employers in matters such as unfair labor practices, collective bargaining negotiations, representation elections, grievances, arbitrations, and strike litigation. These lawyers also counsel clients on issues such as wrongful dismissal and severance entitlement. In short, employment lawyers help protect workers when their rights are being violated.
Civil litigation encompasses a broad range of legal issues from a basic debt collection to a complex case with multiple plaintiffs and multiple defendants with millions of dollars at stake. In fact, any legal issue can be litigated. Most court actions ultimately settle short of trial; however, clients need a law firm that will aggressively press the matter to trial before a judge or jury if the circumstances require.
