[Legal Firm's Name] Provides Litigation Services That Focus Upon Various Types of Cases
The 'law' is much too large for any person to ever know in full. Indeed, even highly experienced judges with decades of experience will be without full knowledge of the law and are therefore, usually, assigned to handle a narrow focus of cases that are within areas of law that are familiar to the judge. Even so, judges will routinely expect representatives for the parties to perform precedent research and then provide submissions and present argument based upon the findings of that research.

Accordingly, it is common that particular judges will hear civil law cases, other judges hear family law cases, and other judges hear criminal cases, etc. Similarly, legal practitioners will focus upon specific areas of law for the types of cases that are handled. Of course, it is true that every case has a unique factual situation; however, the law and justice system, developed over hundreds of years, now involves few cases where the legal issues are a 'first'; and accordingly, relevant law containing the fundamentals and principles for most circumstances will exist.
