This is a short list of the types of issues a Labor Attorney can face in court or in dispute resolution with labor unions. The Labor Attorney can be both an advocate and advisor to clients. As an advocate the attorney represents his client in criminal and civil trials. As an advisor, clients are informed of their legal rights and the lawyer helps the clients in the legal direction they should choose. A Labor Attorney also performs research to discover how the law should apply to his client. A Labor Attorney can be found working for Legal Firms and as independent business owners.

Labor lawyers need to know the labor laws and also union labor laws to defend clients in a courtroom trial. Thinking fast and speaking proficiently gives a Labor Attorney credible influence which speaks volumes outside the courtroom when interviewing or gathering other information for trial.
