What’s in a name: Law professor shares proper use of ‘Atty’

Sharing is caring!

It seems like we are referring to abogados the wrong way. One law professor pointed out the correct use of the title, “Attorney-at-law.”

The abogado said that only clients can refer to a person as an “Attorney.” He emphasized that people should not throw the title around loosely when referring to a person who passed the Bar.

The abogado also mentioned that outside of their lawyering work, they should be addressed with a simple “Mister.” He wrote, “Without a client, we are just ‘Mister!’ With license to practice law!”

Sungit much, Mr. Abogado?
