in our current times the term "Esquire" generally means that the person (even
female lawyers are now using the term) is a lawyer.

earlier use of the term was generally attached to a man (sorry ladies) who was
either a lawyer (barrister, solicitor)  or considered learned, educated and/or
well-to-do.  incidentally, the difference between a barrister and a solicitor is
that a barrister argued cases in court, whereas a solicitor did not.
