An attorney is a person who takes the place of another in legal contexts. Accordingly, it may refer to:

  • Lawyer, as a general synonym
  • Attorney-at-law, an official title of lawyers in some jurisdictions
  • Attorney-in-fact, a holder of a power of attorney who is (though not necessarily a lawyer) able to act on another's behalf in legal and financial contexts
