Q: Can I use US lawyer to oppose a trademark in another country (where my trademark is registered as well)?

I have a trademark that is registered in the US as well as in other countries. If I want to oppose a trademark in another country (where mine is also registered), can a US attorney do this or do I need to contact an attorney in the infringing trademark's country?

A: It all depends on the rules of the other country.

Most likely it will need to be a locally licensed attorney.

A: It depends on the rules and the manner you oppose. for instance, if you want to respond to a challenge, your US attorney may serve as a personal representative, as opposed to attorney of record to communicate with the other party.
