Mark Dubois: I Don't Recommend It
The Connecticut Bar Association Ethics solons have proposed a change to our advertising rules adding language to the commentary to Rule 7.2. The proposal, taken from the American Bar Association model rule, includes a definition of "recommend." In rule regimes, the devil is often found in the details, and the devil in Rule 7.2 is that it prohibits paying another to recommend a lawyer's services.
