It is not improper for an attorney to participate in a lawyer referral service that is a profit-making lay organization or corporation. It is not proper for a lawyer referral's advertising or corporate name to indicate a specialty. It is not proper for an attorney to list himself or his firm as a lawyer referral service in the yellow pages when calls to the listed lawyer referral service go directly to the attorney's office.
