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]
