SOLICITATION -- PROFESSIONAL CARD -- It is improper for a professional card to indicate that an attorney deals in personal injury and workmen's compensation practice since those are not recognized specialties.

Canon 24, 39.

Question: Would the Canons of Ethics be violated by the use of a professional card containing the following language:

"John Doe

Personal Injury and Workmen's Compensation Lawyer

123 Blank Building

Main and First

Blank 1, Texas

By Appointment Only

Phone EX-1234"

Opinion: The committee is of the opinion that use of the above quoted card would violate Canon 24 and 39. (7-3)
