Addressing Envelope for Lawyer

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

When addressing an envelope for a lawyer, do I write Esquire after the name, and do I still use Mr. for a man and Ms. for a woman?


Proper Points

Dear Proper Points,

If using Esquire, leave off the Mr. or Ms., and use the abbreviation, Esq. Below are two ways to address the envelope for a lawyer:

1. Jane Smith, Esq. (Note: some spell out Esquire, but generally, only the abbreviation, Esq., is used)

2. Ms. Jane Smith, Attorney at Law (Note: Attorney at Law is often put directly underneath the name)

SALUTATION: Both would have the salutation: Dear Ms. Smith
