FLORIDA BAR ETHICS OPINION
OPINION 68-29
June 7, 1968
Advisory ethics opinions are not binding.
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:
Opinion:

27
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 In our opinion 64-67 [since withdrawn] we previously concluded that it would not be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.
