In this video, attorney Curt Miner explains how his work as a former federal prosecutor is similar, in many ways, to the practice of personal injury law. Both practices involve holding responsible parties accountable for actions or inactions that have harmed innocent people.
I think there’s a lot in common between being a federal prosecutor and being a plaintiff’s lawyer, like I am now. As a federal prosecutor, you are the one who’s responsible for building a case. You have the burden of proof. You have to prove that someone else did something wrong. As your prosecutor, you’re trying to prove someone committed a crime, and as a prosecutor you’re trying to right a wrong, you’re trying to do justice. I think a lot of that’s true as a plaintiff’s lawyer, too. The burden is on you. You have to put together the case. You have to muster the evidence. You have to prepare the witnesses, find the witnesses. And in a way, it’s the same thing, you’re trying to right a wrong. You’re trying to obtain justice for someone who’s been hurt, who’s been cheated, who’s been defrauded, who’s been wronged.
