Explanation:
Abogado Constituido = appointed attorney or designated attorney

apoderado special=is an attorney in fact (that is it has power of attorney to do and represent)or the same thing as a legal representative; therefore, your title should read:

Appointed attorney and legal representative of such and such

Good luck making a decision! ;o)

attorney of record and special agent


Explanation:
The phrase "designated legal counsel" is an acceptable synonym for "attorney of record." Please note, however, that "special agent" is not at all the same thing as a "special attorney" or "special counsel," both of which are lawyers employed by the Attorney General of the United States (or of any individual state) in matters involving the public interest. -- Hope this helps, HC

appointed and empowered attorney (or legal counsel)


Explanation:
from the context I assume that you are talking about the same person as in these cases attorneys are appointed and empowered to act at the same time.

Good Luck!
