Ethics Opinion OK's Super Lawyers for NC Lawyers

North Carolina joins Florida, Iowa and Michigan in blessing lawyer advertising and participation in Super Lawyers. In a Formal Ethics Opinion issued by the state bar on January 25, 2008, finds that Super Lawyers is published by a bona fide organization that employs clear and consistent standards in its selection process. The Opinion specifically approves lawyer participation in the selection process; advertising that mentions the lawyer's inclusion on the Super Lawyer list; and the placement of advertising in Super Lawyers publications.
