PROFESSIONAL ETHICS OF THE FLORIDA BAR

OPINION 68-29
June 7, 1968

A law firm may not reflect on the door of its offices that the offices are also the office of one of the members of the firm who is a state senator.

Canon: 27
Opinion: 64-67

Chairman MacDonald stated the opinion of the committee:

Members of a Florida law firm inquire as to whether they may reflect on the door of their offices the fact that the offices are also the office of one of the members of the firm who is a state senator. In our opinion 64-67 [since withdrawn] we previously concluded that it would not be proper for an attorney who was a member of the state legislature to indicate that fact on his professional letterhead. We see no distinction between the present proposal and the proposal which we condemned in 64-67. Both in our judgment violate Canon 27.
