I think it the AL is legally acceptable.

And we also have statements of fact that some lawyers do find it
acceptable.  If you had said "some," I would have agreed.  But I took your
lack of quantifying modifier to be a statement that all, or even most,
lawyers find it unacceptable.  I am sure the former is false, and I
wouldn't believe the latter without specific proof (which probably wouldn't
even be worth getting).
