August 1965

SOLICITATION—SPECIALISTS—LETTERHEADS—A member may not properly include on his letterhead the words "Land Titles, Wills and Probate Matters."  

Canons 24, 39, 41, 42.

Question

Is it unethical for a member to use a letterhead at the top of which is printed the words "Land Titles, Wills and Probate Matters."

Yes. The listing of such specialties on the lawyer’s letterhead is advertising prohibited by Canon 24. Opinion 267 (October, 1963); see Canons 39, 41 and 42 and A.B.A. Canon 27. (9-0.)
