SOLICITATION -- CLASSIFIED ADVERTISEMENTS -- TELEPHONE DIRECTORIES - An attorney should not indicate that he is a member of a local bar association in the classified section of a telephone directory.
Would it be a violation of our Canons of Ethics for a member of the Fort Worth Bar Association to have a line in the local telephone directory, under his name in the section on attorneys, advising the public that he is a member of the Fort Worth Bar Association. A form of listing would be as follows:
John D. Doe, Fort Worth Bank Bldg.FO-000
Member Fort Worth Bar Association
The committee is of the opinion that this listing would be improper as a violation of Canon 24 of the Canons of Ethics of the State Bar of Texas. (6-2)
