Technically there are two, criminal and civil. Criminal attorneys practice in the area of prosecution or defense, covering many areas from high priority felonies to traffi…c and juvenile issues, and "white collar crime." Civil attorneys practice in many areas such as domestic law, tax law, corporate law, personal injury and so forth. Some attorneys practice in general law which pertains to both criminal and civil issues. divorce lawyers too All lawyers start out basically the same. Few law schools have specialty tracks, though some allow a concentration in some areas. Specialization occurs after law school. The only type of lawyer that is actually licensed differently is the Patent Attorney, who must pass the Patent Bar as well as the standard state bar exam. Other types of specialization: Tax Law Environmental Law Family Law Patent Law Contract Law Property Law Commercial Law
