Important Reminder: Lawyer Advertising Filing Requirement
Per Rule 7.7 of the Louisiana Rules of Professional Conduct, all lawyer advertisements and all unsolicited written communications sent in compliance with Rule 7.4 or 7.6(c) - unless specifically exempt under Rule 7.8 - are required to be filed with the LSBA Rules of Professional Conduct Committee, through LSBA Ethics Counsel, prior to or concurrent with first use/dissemination.
Written evaluation for compliance with the Rules will be provided within 30 days of receipt of a complete filing. Failure to file/late filing will expose the advertising lawyer(s) to risk of challenge, complaint and/or disciplinary consequences. The necessary Filing Application Form, information about the filing and evaluation process, the required filing fee(s) and the pertinent Rules are available online at: http://www.lsba.org/LawyerAdvertising. Inquiries, questions and requests for assistance may be directed to LSBA Ethics Counsel Richard P. Lemmler, Jr., RLemmler@LSBA.org, (800)421-5722, ext. 144, or direct dial (504)619-0144.
