LEO NumTopicsSummary


[WITHDRAWN 4/18] A lawyer's advertisements should: include only factual assertions and not opinions; be easily verifiable and not subject to ambiguous interpretations; and not convey the impression that the lawyer's skills rather than justice of the claim is determinative. [Overruled to the extent the conclusion is inconsistent with LEO 1750, as revised on 12/18/08.]
