This paper examines criminal lawyers or litigators in their profession, based on actual studies and data collected. Delving deeper, the writer studies the issue of gender in this profession and compares success rates between males and females in this occupation.

From the Paper:

"Most people have a pre-conceived notion of lawyers, which is based mostly on the media, television or the movies. However, this general idea of lawyers is incorrect. In fact, the courtroom job that the American public pictures as a lawyer is realistically that of a criminal lawyer. The legal profession has suffered greatly from media portrayals. Television shows and movies have displayed the attorney as unethical, overly aggressive and dishonest. The general public views this profession as deviant by association, when in reality the job of the criminal litigator serves to provide citizens on trial with their sixth amendment right to counsel."
