A Texas Sidebar on Internet Referral Services As Solicitation

Following up on Mike's report earlier of an Arizona ruling finding certain internet referral services (more than listings) to run afoul of its solictation rule:  Here linked is a similar opinion from the400042_texas_ranch_road_2   Texas Center for Legal Ethics and Professionalism.  It concludes: “Under the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, a lawyer may not pay a fee to be listed on a privately sponsored internet site which obtains information over the internet from potential clients about their legal problems and forwards the information to one or more lawyers who have paid to be listed on the internet site."  [Alan Childress]
