The URL is appending "?p1=about-iconic" - An example is: http://www.website.com/client/iconic/company-overview?p1=about-iconic

We need it to say http://www.website.com/client/iconic/company-overview

Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The first two RewriteRules are the culprit.  They fire first and rewrite the url.  The Redirect 301 statements below that never trigger.

Move the Redirects above the Rewrites.
