A Rose By Any Other Name

A woman called this afternoon and asked for some slang terms for attorneys/lawyers.

The following entry, from 'The Thesaurus of slang' was the answer I gave her:

"Attorney n. man's mouth, mouthpiece, shyster, ambulance chaser, legal eagle, legal beagle, beagle, beak, fixer, lip, patch, the L.A., tongue, pleader, pettifogger, Philadelphia lawyer, squeal, bomber (divorce), front, mugger, spieler, spouter, tangle jaw, warble, springer, ghost (writes briefs), D.A. cutter (prosecutor)"
