Proposed Amendments to Rules Governing Lawyer Advertising

The four Presiding Justices of the Appellate Divisions have approved for public comment the attached proposed amendments to those provisions of the Disciplinary Rules of the Code of Professional Responsibility governing advertising and solicitation of business by attorneys. The amendments extensively revise section 1200.6 [DR 2-101] of the Rules, addressing the content of advertisements, and contain new limitations on solicitations relating to incidents involving potential claims for personal injury and wrongful death. They also bring the rules into the computer age. The amendments are to become effective on January 15, 2007.
