A Virginia lawyer who was also a member of the Florida Bar and a board certified tax lawyer in Florida may advertise this status in Virginia, as long as the advertisement specifies that the status was granted by a bar other than Virginia's. [Rule 7.4(d) would now require that the advertisement explain that Virginia has no procedure for approving certifying organizations.]
