What Is the Difference Between a Litigator And an Attorney?

An attorney is a general term that describes a lawyer licensed to practice law. On the other hand, a litigator is a specific type of attorney who specializes in litigating or taking cases to court and typically involves representing clients in court, negotiating settlements, and arguing motions. In short, all litigators are attorneys, but not all attorneys are litigators.
