Latin Legal Terms


Deprecator – this Latin verb refers to the figure of intercessor, one who pleads on behalf of other person. The origin of this term is the Latin word “deprecatus” (pray against). In the legal practice, this is the figure of the lawyer – a court representative who performs legal actions for protection of the interests of other people against payment. He pleads to court on behalf of another person (their client).
*It should be noted that bona-fide lawyers and attorneys-at-law do not practice their job for free. Legal advice and legal protection of people’s interests is paid as any other type of job – including the legal consultations and legal representation. The efforts which lawyers put in proper performance of their legal activities should be respected and valued by the people who seek their legal assistance. The same situation occurs when you visit a doctor – you pay for consultation and for eventual medical treatment.
