47-Lawyer Referral Services

[WITHDRAWN 9/16] A lawyer referral service: may limit referrals to a certain number of lawyers in each locality, as long as there is no public deception; may be a profit-making organization; may not improperly indicate lawyers' specialties; may not be organized by a lawyer so that telephone calls to the referral service go directly to the lawyer's office.
