CGWC Partner Appointed To Florida Bar Attorney Advertising Committee
CGWC partner, Melvin B. Wright, has been appointed by the Florida Bar to its Advertising Committee for a three year period beginning July 2010. The Advertising Committee is responsible for advising members of the Florida Bar on permissible advertising and marketing practices. Advertising of legal services in Florida has always been strictly regulated and unlike other professions, restrictions on advertising go beyond prohibiting false advertising. All lawyers and referral services must follow strict rules designed to assure not only that ads are not misleading, but that the ads do not promise results or suggest that the law firm’s services are superior to others, as an example.
