The word PARAKLHTOS appears 5 times in NA27.
Jn 14.16, 26; 15.26; 16.7; 1 Jn 2.1
BDAG should be consulted here. Since the entry is relatively lengthy, I will leave it to the reader to look up the article.
LSJ gives this
PARAKLHTOS, ON, called to ones aid, in a court of justice: as Subst.﻿, legal assistant, advocate, D.﻿19.1, Lycurg.﻿Fr.﻿102, etc.﻿
2. summoned, äïῦëïé D.C.﻿46.20, cf.﻿ BGU﻿601.12 (ii a.d.).
II. intercessor, Ph.﻿2.520: hence in NT﻿, PARAKLHTOS, of the Holy Spirit, Ev.Jo.﻿14.16, cf.﻿ 1﻿Ep.Jo.﻿2.1.

I found this word (parakleitos) in several texts and i would like to know all of its senses.
In general is is translated as "advocate" or "demander of charity" but it does not fit.
Thank you for help
