General practice attorneys perform a wide range of legal services but usually do not focus on a single area of the law. You will usually find a general practice lawyer in a small town, but big cities have them as well. You might consider a general practice lawyer as a “Jack of all Trades” who can give advice in many legal areas, represent you in common lawsuits and negotiations, and prepare everyday agreements and contracts.

A general practice lawyer will refer you to an attorney who handles a specific practice area if necessary.
