It is generally more cost effective to hire an attorney that is familiar with the particular area of the law; for example a criminal attorney will need to become acquainted with the basics of employment law, whereas an attorney that routinely practices this will be familiar with leading cases, and will presumably have a membership in periodicals that summarize updates on the law. This can save the client significant sums of money as one need not pay the attorney to get up to speed so to speak. Also an employment law attorney will typically spend at least some of his/her continuing education hours on employment law seminars-a great source of information.
So generally it is better to hire an employment attorney and then one can shop around within that area for an attorney that has a reputation for the desired quality (ie aggressivess, prestige, intellect, trial skills etc).
Another option is to hire a firm that specializes in litigation as they generally have several departments, so the case would be assigned to the employment law attorney who would handle all the briefs/strategy and the litigator would handle the trial.
