We are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UAE, Egypt based lawyers, attorneys, solicitors, barristers, and esquire because all of theses words are synonyms.
In brief we shall give a little idea about them.
You often hear reference to “lawyers” and “attorneys.” Despite the ease of categorizing these two words as synonyms, they do in fact mean different things. The difference is only slight, but it matters a great deal to state bar associations, particularly in the investigation and prosecution of unauthorized practice of law cases. However, practically speaking, the terms have become interchangeable in many countries.
A lawyer is simply one who is trained in the law. They may or may not provide legal guidance to another. Thus, anyone who has attended law school in the United States can consider them a lawyer. However, until they pass the bar exam in the jurisdiction in which they intend to work, the method by which they use their layering skills is limited. For example, a policy advisor or consultant to the government, who attended law school, is technically a lawyer and may offer his skills in the course of his work, but he must not cross the fine line into providing legal representation.
An attorney or attorney at law is also a lawyer. They have attended law school and presumably “practice” the study of law as a career. However, attorneys by definition have passed a bar examination and have been admitted to practice law in the particular jurisdiction. They may go beyond the realm of lawyer and provide legal representation to an individual. The relationship is more than merely providing the factual state of the law and delves into providing strategy for the client’s needs in reference to the law. An attorney can also appear in court and other settings on behalf of a client. An attorney is also a lawyer, but a lawyer may not necessarily be an attorney.
Though technical differences exist, practically speaking, only a lawyer would know the difference between lawyer, attorney, barrister, solicitor, or the limits on using esquire. The general public can probably rest easy in a world of synonym, as long as they ensure the lawyer handling the case is also an attorney.
As a Conclusion ; Lawyer is a general term for a person who gives legal device and aid and who conducts suits in court. An attorney or, more correctly, an attorney-at-law, is a member of the legal profession who represents a client in court when pleading or defending a case. In the US, attorney applies to any lawyer
Recently we had a discussion about the correct use and the difference between the following words: solicitor lawyer attorney barrister counsellor.
The traditional legal profession is however divided into solicitors and barristers
- 1 – Solicitors advise clients and represent them in civil and criminal courts and also deal with business advice on every area of law – some specialize in specific areas of law and others may be “general practitioners.
- 2 – Barristers (often called counsel) may be junior counsel or Queens Counsel (selected for special ability and experience). Their clients are the solicitors who “instruct” them. At one time barristers had sole rights to appear in the High Court and the court of appeal and the House of Lords but this
