ETHICS OPINION 298
NUMBER 298 1932
Question and Answer. The Committee has received numerous inquiries from lawyers who have been solicited, respecting a proposal indicated in the following answer:
In the opinion of the Committee, a lawyer cannot with professional propriety advertise by paying for the appearance of his name in a telephone directory which essays to specify under one or more classifications selected by the advertiser one or more particular branches of the profession in which he is engaged. It contravenes the principles of Canons 27 and 43 of the American Bar Association.
