Ohio Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline, Opinion 12-02

Topics: Identification of Non-lawyers on Law Firm Websites

Syllabus of the Board:

“A law firm’s letterhead and website may list the names of nonlawyer employees if the employees are clearly identified as nonlawyers through the use of job titles or other identifiers that differentiate the lawyers from the nonlawyers. Similarly, a law firm’s business cards may bear the names of nonlawyer employees if the cards include job titles or other language indicating the employee is not licensed to practice law.”
