The young attorney often may have time on his hands. He may be tempted to increase his following by advertising or by soliciting clients, but rules of the bar and statutes against solicitation prevent this. There are, of course, some forms of advertising open to all lawyers. National directories and law lists, such as the Martin dale-Hubbell Law Directory, theoretically published only for lawyers, not only advertise the attorney and his firm, but also list the names of any clients whom he wishes to give as representative of his practice and his specialties.
