"Counselor" vs. "lawyer":
This is not a new distinction. Back in the 70s and earlier, many large old
prestigious law firms had letterheads reading "Counselors and Attorneys-at-Law."
(Some may still do so today.) The distinction was presumably between what we
called corporate lawyers (who gave advice) and litigators. I agree with the
others on the thread that this is meaningless in that "attorney" or "lawyer"
encompass all manner of legal eagles.
