Two Types of Lawyers That You Should Know About: Sexual Assault and Impaired Driving

Hiring a lawyer is something that most people have to do at least once in their lives. But one thing that is important to remember (and something that many people forget) is that there are many different areas of law, and you will need to hire a lawyer that specializes in the area of law that applies to your case. If you need to pursue a lawsuit against a company, for example, you will want someone who is familiar with business law or corporate law, but if you are a victim of sexual harassment or assault, you will need a sexual assault lawyer who specializes in those areas of the legal system.

In order to better help you understand the importance of hiring the right lawyer, we’ve put together this article listing and describing two types of lawyers. While the two we’ve chosen are by no means an extensive explanation of your options when it comes to legal aid (there are many, many different areas of the law), we feel that these are two of the most commonly hired types of lawyers and therefore the most relevant at this time. We hope you find this information helpful.

 

About Sexual Assault Lawyers

Cases involving sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and sexual assault are all too common these days, and it’s important to have a lawyer who is familiar with the appropriate areas of the law when it comes to handling and pursuing these very serious matters.

Sexual assault lawyers are, as the title implies, lawyers who specialize in handling these complicated cases involving sexual assault and abuse. Furthermore, there are lawyers who specialize in the criminal justice aspect of sexual assault law (such as prosecuting the perpetrators) and other lawyers who specialize in the civil justice aspect of things (such as holding negligent parties accountable and obtaining compensation for the assault victims in order to help them move forward with their lives).

 

About Impaired Driving Lawyers

Lawyers who specialize in DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) cases are sometimes also referred to as impaired driving lawyers.

These lawyers (in most cases) strive to defend and protect clients who have been charged with DUIs or DWIs (the specific term for the charge varies from state to state).

In cases where evidence is provided that proves that their client is guilty of driving while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or medications, the lawyer will then fight to have the charges against their client either reduced or dropped entirely (depending upon the circumstances in question, of course; a DUI case where another party was injured is unlikely to be dismissed and a lawyer would subsequently not pursue that particular course of action).

Ultimately, impaired driving lawyers can be a tremendous asset when it comes to defending against DUI charges. And even if the initial defense fails, they can still negotiate your sentence and assist you in retaining your driving privileges if certain conditions are met.
