OPINION 28
September 1950

SOLICITATION—ADVERTISING—CATALOGUES—An ad in a dog show catalogue soliciting stud fees, accompanied by the names of an attorney and his firm, does not violate the Canons, but it would be better form and more professional if the names of the attorney and his firm were omitted.

Canon 24.

Question

Does the listing of the following form of an advertisement in a dog show catalogue violate any of the Canons of Legal Ethics of the State Bar of Texas, namely:

"Texarkana's Mississippi Zeb

Son of the Last English Setter to win National Championship

Stud fee $25.00

Owner: (name of individual)

"c/o ……

Attorney at Law

(Name of City) Texas"

Opinion

The committee is of the opinion that the above ad does not violate any of the Canons of Legal Ethics of the State Bar of Texas. It is also the opinion of the Committee that would have been better form, and much more professional, if the name of the firm and the fact that they were Attorneys at Law had been omitted. (9-1)
