General Practice typically encompasses a broad range of areas. General practice attorneys are considered full service lawyers and are qualified to handle cases having to do with personal injury, business dealings and mediation, family and estate planning, and litigation representation.
Ideally, general practice lawyers have a broad range of knowledge through education and experience in the legal field. General practitioners in law usually have a few preferred areas of interest, for example, tax law, tort law and family law, or personal injury law, real estate law and entertainment law, but also keep a broad range of clients in different areas of representation. General practice attorneys must keep up with the statutes and regulations of the states they're licensed in and update their practices with the knowledge they use through furthering their education.
