LEO: Solicitation of Employment - Free Estate  LE Op. 856

 

Solicitation of Employment - Free Estate Planning Seminars.

 

November 10, 1986

 

It is not unethical per se for an attorney to offer estate planning

seminars to the congregations of various churches free of charge when the

attorney does not intend to solicit business, but if subsequently

contacted by church members, would not decline representation. The

attorney must comply with the provisions of DR:2-101, EC:2-9 and any

other appropriate ethical considerations. [ DR:2-101; EC:2-9]

 

Committee Opinion November 10, 1986
