A Recent Publication on Litigation
The website www.thereisnoconsensus.com recently published a piece by Heideck on the life of a litigator, and what the career entails. It’s a well written piece that offers a wealth of detail for those who want to know more about the real challenges involved in pursuing a successful legal career.
As Karl Heideck explains it, litigators in civil (non-criminal) cases work to bring consensus between their clients and the opposing sides in a case. When an agreement can be worked out that deals with the issues at hand, a settlement offer can be made to the plaintiff. When the settlement is accepted, the case can be completed without the necessity of going to a court trial, which can be an unpredictable and hugely expensive situation.

Civil litigators usually work for large law firms, but they do sometimes have their own private practice or work for a large bank or corporation. Some large companies have ongoing legal issues to deal with, so they keep experienced litigators on staff to deal with them.
As a civil litigator prepares a case, there is usually a lot of research to be done on the case’s background. This can involve studying medical records or other pieces of documentation that are relevant to the case.
Working as a litigator can be a highly challenging job, but it certainly can be rewarding. Heideck’s work in communicating the reality of the job is just one part of his work as an attorney who serves his profession with pride.
