英会話ブログ その630     Land of Lawyers (2)

2015/04/01

There are many types of lawyers in the USA: Trial lawyers ( who try a case in front of a judge or jury ), public defenders ( who defend usually poor people accused of a crime ), personal injury lawyers ( who try to get compensation for their clients who have been injured ), and also cooperate lawyers, property lawyers, patents attorneys, and so on.

Perhaps the lawyers with the worst image are personal injury lawyers who encourage people to file lawsuits against companies or other citizens who have somehow wronged them.

Often, the amount of money of the lawsuit is far out of proportions to the actual damage.                                         (G.K)
