28-Law Firm Staff


45-Law Firms - Miscellaneous

[WITHDRAWN 9/16] A lawyer should not open up a branch office to be staffed entirely by non-lawyers (with the lawyer expecting to visit the branch office two days each month), because a lawyer's supervision over non-lawyer staff "should be significant, rigorous and efficient."
