party for distribution so long as: (1) the business cards are not false,
fraudulent, misleading or deceptive; (2) the third-party distributing the
cards makes no statement that is false, fraudulent, misleading or
deceptive and does not initiate contact with the potential client under
circumstances that might involve duress or intimidation; and (3) the
attorney does not compensate the third-party for distributing his business
cards. [ DR:2-103(A), (D); In re Primus, 436 U.S. 412 (1978); Ohralik
