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
