WHAT DOES ESQ. MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Esquire

Esquire is a courtesy title used in the United States largely for lawyers and the United Kingdom for certain members of the gentry. In the United States, the nominal suffix "Esquire" or "Esq." generally designates individuals licensed to practice law. In the United Kingdom, it was a title of respect accorded to men of higher social rank, but later came to be used as a general courtesy title for any man in a formal context, usually appended to the name as in "John Smith, Esq.", with no precise significance. Esquire is cognate with the word squire, which originally meant an apprentice or assistant to a knight. The title "Esquire" has been used continuously since it was created in the late 14th century, and many uses continue today.
