  • The most logical answer to this is "Prosecution Attorney." There's numerous things PA stands for, but this seems to answer the question.
  • I submit it means "Professional Association". Along the line of LLC. Limited Liablitity Corporation. The person is self-incorporated. You can not sue the person personally.
  • Andywho is correct. I work for a physician, who is an "M.D., P.A.". It means they are self incorporated, and you can only sue their business in case of malpractice. You would not be able to touch their personal assets, such as their home or personal bank accounts as part of any malpractice award you might receive from the court.
  • In Florida, at least, "P. A." usually means "Professional Association," so it is like adding "Inc." or "L. L. C." to your name. There is, however, no form of business organization that can (or should) protect a doctor or lawyer from his or her own malpractice. If a professional injures you through malpractice, you can sue them personally, no matter how fancy their business may be.
  • The answer is Public Attorney. The abbreviation may also indicate self-incorporated status, however the common reference after an attorney's name is Public (and not Prosecuting, by the way) Attorney.
