What is a Katy lawyer?

The terms attorney and lawyer are often used interchangeably in the United States. There is very little distinction made between the two. This difficulty to differentiate is a result of the fact that in the United States, unlike in other countries, this distinction is not made. However, a slight one does exist.

What Qualifies Someone as a Katy Attorney?

A lawyer is someone who is learned and trained in law. Yet, they may not actually practice law. They often give legal advice. By attending law school in the United States, one can be considered a lawyer. A student of law must pass the bar exam in their particular jurisdiction in order to practice law by providing legal representation. Otherwise, the opportunities to use their law education are limited.


Family law issues are often needlessly complex and difficult to overcome without the proper level of legal assistance. When considering the complexities of relationships that can be affected by legal issues, it becomes even more imperative that you do not entrust your future and the future of your family to a lawyer that does not have your best interests at heart.

Personalized Legal Guidance

Too many firms treat their clients as a number, running them through a legal machine. You cannot be content with such subpar assistance. Each case and each client is unique and deserves to be treated with an equally unique and tailor-made solution. Your choice in attorney is extremely important and should be treated as such.

An attorney at law or attorney-at-law is typically abbreviated to attorney in everyday conversation. An attorney is considered the official name for a lawyer in the United States. The first known use of the term attorney-at-law was in 1768.

An attorney-at-law is defined as a practitioner in a court of law who is legally qualified to prosecute and defend actions in such court on the retainer of clients. The English word attorney has French origins, meaning “a person acting for another as an agent or deputy.” An attorney actually practices law in court whereas a lawyer may or may not. An attorney has passed the bar exam and has been approved to practice law in his jurisdiction.

Although the terms often operate as synonyms, an attorney is a lawyer but a lawyer is not necessarily an attorney. To the general public, these terms may be used interchangeably but to the American Bar Association, the slight distinction is significant.
