Does anybody know the meaning of a phrase "a dirt lawyer"? I've got as a part of a homework where I need to describe the meaning of the phrases, but I've never heard this one before and I've searched but found nothing. I hope someone will be able to help

    "i've searched but found nothing" Really? Using Google.com, I find all the top results are pages that make the meaning clear, with and without quotes around the phrase. I hadn't heard the phrase before, myself (a native speaker).

I had to go to a second page of google search to find the actual meaning of the term.

Linkedin "dirt law"

"I’ve been practicing dirt law for more than 15 years, which means that I help my clients buy, sell, develop, lease and finance real estate."

So, it means law having to do with ground, i.e. "dirt".

  • Thanks a lot! You really saved me
