Please Check Our Top Lawyers, Attorneys, Barristers:
A lawyer is a person who practices law. The role of a lawyer varies greatly across different legal jurisdictions. A lawyer can be classified as an advocate, attorney, barrister, canon lawyer, civil law notary, counsel, counselor, solicitor, legal executive, or public servant — with each role having different functions and privileges. Working as a lawyer generally involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific problems. Some lawyers also work primarily in advancing the interests of the law and legal profession.
In the United States, the terms lawyer and attorney are often used interchangeably. For this reason, people in and out of the legal field often ask, “is an attorney and a lawyer the same thing?”. In colloquial speech, the specific requirements necessary to be considered a lawyer vs attorney aren’t always considered. Though in everyday speech these terms usually refer to the same person, there are distinctions that law students should be aware of.
A barrister is a type of lawyer in common law jurisdictions. Barristers mostly specialize in courtroom advocacy and litigation. Their tasks include taking cases in superior courts and tribunals, drafting legal pleadings, researching the law and giving expert legal opinions.

Kaufman and Kavicky first opened for business in 2003. Mr. Kaufman was dissatisfied with his past position at a mostly profit-driven larger multistate firm. Mr. Kaufman then started this firm, modeled more like a “legal aid” type of setting, hiring only people genuinely dedicated to consumer protection, not people who only care about their own pockets. The firm has grown slowly and steadily over the years, currently employing three full-time dedicated consumer protection attorneys and three incredible paralegals and support staff. At any one time the firm handles about 150 active cases and Mr. Kaufman works hard to be familiar with each of them. That said, when (and if) trial time comes, it’s all hands on deck at Kaufman and Kavicky. We are a team in the true sense of the word, always pitching in to help each other in any way that we can, to make sure that the client is first and foremost in all we do. The firm has been directly responsible for getting tens of millions of dollars returned to California Consumers over the years. 4869 Topanga Canyon Blvd, Woodland Hills, CA 91364, USA, +1 866 422 5366
