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

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?
