English term or phrase:petitioner's counsel
hola tengo una duda de como se traduce este término.
aparece en una resolución judicial de una corte de Nueva York.
Explanation: "Petitioner" casi siempre significa "recurrente", es decir, el que perdió el juicio y recurre o apela a un tribunal superior. "Petitioner" también puede significar "demandante", pero creo que sólo en pleitos de divorcio. Estos datos son para EE UU.

Explanation: Just some other wording, to apply in other contexts since 'petition' can apply in very different actions; from a 'motion to quash' to a 'petition for review' or 'petition for habeas corpus relief' (the latter is an out-and-out lawsuit against very powerful officials). I drew these suggestions from the Javier Becerra bilingual legal dictionary, aimed at U.S. and Mexican legal usages. But our colleagues' suggestions are also found there for other legal actions.
