It is not improper for an attorney to send a letter to parties who have

written checks to a client which have been returned for non-sufficient

funds, stating that unless such fee is paid in full, plus a reasonable

service charge, suit will be commenced in ten days. [See II: DR:7-101(A)

and DR:7-103(A) and (B).]
