    Okay, thanks. So, if a judge or a lawyer
    wants to address another lawyer, they
    would say "Counselor, ..." or "Counsel, ...."?

    They would be adressed directly by name ie Mr Smith

    And referred to indirectly as Counsel for the Defence or The Defence
    ( and the same with the prosecution )

    The Judge would be adressed directly as M`lud ( short for My Lord )
    or Your Lordship
