<p>Isn't the 'at law' part kind of, you know, assumed? Are there attorneys at other things from which you need to differentiate yourselves? Attorney at Finance? Attorney at Systems Analysis? Attorney at Plumbing?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Please advise.</p>

In the U.S., there is an important other type: the attorney-in-fact. AIF are people authorized to exercise power-of-attorney for someone else. In most common law countries, the default meaning of "attorney" is AIF. Here, since we use the term for two different kinds of status, you see the "at law" and "in fact" stuff used to sort things out.
