28-Law Firm Staff


[WITHDRAWN 9/16] A law firm staff member may not solicit business for the firm even if the non-lawyer is to receive no additional compensation for the service (because the staff member would be compensated with a regular salary for recommending or securing employment for the law firm). A lawyer may never delegate in-person solicitation to a non-lawyer, even acting under the lawyer's supervision.
