We asked attorneys and other legal professionals throughout the country why we say "attorney at law"? Can you be an attorney at anything else? Several individuals responded and they all gave the same reason. We hope you enjoy their responses.
 

Because you can indeed be an Attorney In Fact (what you are when you are appointed through a Power of Attorney)

As opposed to attorney-in-fact, the relationship formed with a non-lawyer to whom you grant power of attorney for specific purposes, attorney at law designates it's a lawyer.

There are attorneys at law who are legally trained lawyers and there are attorneys in fact who are not required to be legally trained. It is a very important distinction.

When someone uses a power of attorney to act as the agent for someone else, they are referred to as the "attorney in fact," showing a distinction between the types of "attorneys."

20+ years of estate planning work has demonstrated this distinction, many times.
