The New Jersey Supreme Court has reprimanded two attorneys for violations of rules governing the solicitations of clients through the mail.
The violations involved failure to follow interpretive guidelines regarding disclaimer languge and font size.
The Disciplinary Review Board also considered whether the attorneys' solicitation of potential clients charged with illegal u-turn offenses was false or misleading by suggesting the possibility of jail time for such heinous offenses.
The DRB found that the suggestion did not cross the line of the ethics rules. (Mike Frisch)
