Can an advocate also be an auditor

My colleges are printed visiting cards and displayed name boards as "Auditor and Advocate".  Can an advocate also be auditor.  They relayed that Auditor is common word used for C.As and also for any person who audits the accounts with the knowledge of commerce but preferably B.Com graduate.  Is it right version and is there any legal complications in keeping so.
