 Juris Doctor a Doctor?: Law Vault Message Board (What you usually see)
How come it is uncommmon in the US for Juris Doctor title holders to prefix their name with the Dr. title?
Some argue that because the JD is a first professional degree, "doctor" isn't appropriate.
A better argument against using the title doctor when only having a JD is that a JD is not a terminal degree -- you can go on and get an LLM and then a JSD.

Complainant urges that it is unethical for Respondent Tavel to use Doctor before his name and that it is unethical for a holder of a juris doctor to use “Doctor” before his name because the use of Doctor carries an implication of medical doctor.
Complainant urges that Respondent is not commonly known as Dr. Tavel.
Complainant further asserts that although Respondent holds a law degree, it is inappropriate for the holder of such a degree to be referred to as “doctor.” Complainant adds as well that Respondent’s use of the domain name is not bona fide, legitimate or fair.
