    In the U.S. the term attorney strictly speaking means one who transacts business for another. However, in common use the term is short for the phrase attorney at law, which refers to a person who is licensed to practice law. The term lawyer also means one who is licensed to practice law. So as the two terms are usually used they mean the same thing.

    All we know is that when the OP posted before her IP address was in the Ukraine. If she was using a VPN she could be anywhere in the world. As for being a spammer, I saw nothing in that thread that indicated that.

    The spam link was removed. CBG noted it in her post on that thread.

    Other than the word "lawyer" containing SIX letters and the word "attorney" containing EIGHT letters, there is NO difference in the meaning of the two words.

    Army Judge is not only an attorney/lawyer but also a Judge...I think he knows the definition of attorney/lawyer.
