[Legal Firm's Name] Provides Services Focusing Upon a Variety 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. While all cases will involve unique facts, after hundreds of years of development of the law and justice system, few cases are truly novel and various fundamental basics of the law will likely exist and apply to a specific situation.
