Florida Bar Association Sued Over Ban on Client Testimonials

Public Citizen has sued the State Bar of Florida on behalf of attorney Joel Rothman challenging the constitutionality of its ban on client testimonials in attorney advertising.
The case stems from Rothman's use of the online lawyer directory Avvo, which not only lists attorneys but also ranks them on a scale of one to 10 and gives clients an opportunity to review attorneys.
Rules on attorney advertising in Nevada can be found at NRS 7.045, RPC 7.1-RPC 7.4.
