Flight 3407 Lawsuits and the Ethics of Client Solicitation

Litigation over Continental Flight 3407, which crashed near Buffalo last week, is inevitable.  But for lawyers interested in representing the plaintiffs, New York's new ethics rules on lawyer advertising and solicitation impose a significant constraint.  Over at the NY Personal Injury Law Blog, Eric Turkewitz (here and here) has been watching how law firms have tried to market themselves in the wake of the crash.  Interesting.  (Hat tip:  Overlawyered)
