Oladotun’s Answer

The daily tasks of a lawyer can vary depending on their specialization and the type of law they practice. However, common or should I say basic tasks include conducting legal research, drafting legal documents (such as contracts, briefs, and motions), meeting with clients, negotiating settlements, appearing in court, and advising clients on legal matters.

Doc’s Answer

The average day of a lawyer Josh, depend on the type of law they practice, where they work and what their experience level is. Eestablished professionals, days can require long hours with lots of careful research and client meetings. While lawyers often perform important work in courtrooms, their daily job expectations typically have more to do with preparatory and administrative processes.

DRAWING UP LEGAL DOCUMENTS
Lawyers across every stratum base their dealings on legal documents. These documents serve as tool kits for defense lawyers and the trial counsel to make their oral arguments in a courtroom. Out of court, lawyers can also draw up documents relating to divorce, real estate transactions, wills, and contracts on behalf of their clients

PROVIDING LEGAL COUNSEL
Clients depend on legal counsel because they cannot claim ignorance to escape liability for violating the law or evading obligations imposed upon them by statutes. Lawyers aid clients by offering legal advice on these rights and responsibilities. This advice enables clients to both maximize any benefits they could claim through their rights and minimize the chances of any legal flaw in their dealings.

GATHERING EVIDENCE
In law, seeing is believing. The lawyers cannot convince the jury or judge unless facts and evidence back up their oral arguments. Hence, legal practitioners, especially trial lawyers, make it a point of duty to gather substantial evidence to secure a conviction or otherwise.

REPRESENTING CLIENTS
Many lawyers, like personal injury lawyers, use their communication skills to defend their clients during legal proceedings. Lawyers represent their clients during negotiations leading to settlements for tortious, or harmful, acts. Clients employ these services because they do not have the legal expertise and professionalism required to carry out these legal transactions.

PROVIDING ABERRATION
Lawyers negotiate between conflicting parties during alternative dispute resolution sessions. This out-of-court remedy avoids the rigorous formal litigation process and helps parties arrive at a consensus faster in a more casual manner.
