Is There a Difference between a Criminal Lawyer and other lawyers?

It is natural to want to know the differences between criminal lawyers and other lawyers. There is no real difference between criminal lawyers and the varying kinds of lawyers specialising in all other areas of the law. Except that, according to research, about two thirds of law firms in South Africa do not practice criminal law. According to a survey commissioned by the Law Society of South Africa, only about 35.6% of law firms in South Africa practice criminal law. An unexpected factor about criminal law is that it can be intimidating to some lawyers and the few criminal lawyers or firms who practice criminal law are, in fact, a special kind.

With the differences in question, between criminal lawyers and other lawyers, it is also a querying aspect to wonder about whether or not there is actually a difference between the terms “lawyer and attorney”. No, there is no difference. The correct title for a lawyer in South Africa is “Attorney at Law”. With that’s said, there is no real difference in the different lawyers and titles. When it comes a criminal lawyer, the only difference is really the area in which the lawyer specialises.
