Deceptive Communications.


September 3, 1982


It is improper for a plaintiff's attorney to advise a potential tort

defendant in a disputed liability claim that he will be responsible for

costs other than those taxable by the court, or to state that the

defendant's credit will be greatly impaired unless the amount claimed is

paid in full. [ DR:1-102(A)(4)]
