Prepaid Legal Plans.


January 30, 1987


An attorney proposes to license a prepaid legal service plan with the

State Corporation Commission, administer the plan and provide all legal

plan through nonattorneys, who will receive commissions based on income

derived from the subscribers. [ DR:2-101, DR:2-103; 38.2-4409 et
