You find yourself in a situation where you're going to have to address a letter to a judge and you've never done that before. Hello, I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer the question "how to address correspondence to a judge"? Well the first thing to remember is when addressing a judge in correspondence remember to be polite as you would be if you were addressing that judge in a court room. It's perfectly acceptable to address them as Dear Judge John Doe; obviously if they're married it's acceptable to address them as Dear Judge John Doe and Mrs. John Doe. Also Judge and Mrs. John Doe. It's also acceptable to use the phrase The Honorable, so you could address it The Honorable John Doe and Mrs. John Doe. Likewise you can use the phrase The Honorable when addressing correspondence to a city councilman, a mayor, an attorney general, a state representative or some other elected official. I'm Robert Todd and thank you for watching.
