American lawyer or federal prosecutor?

Bill Walsh tackles the misleading nature of the title "U.S. attorney."
Use federal prosecutors when U.S. attorneys could be read to mean American lawyers. Your readers don't necessarily know that you scrupulously observe the distinction between lawyer and attorney.
That's especially true, given that most people don't know of the distinction, let alone scrupulously observe it.
