(b)-(d) Reserved.

 

Comment

[1] Paragraph (a) of this Rule permits a licensed paralegal practitioner to indicate areas of practice in communications about the licensed paralegal practitioner’s services. If a licensed paralegal practitioner practices only in certain fields or will not accept matters except in a specified field or fields, the licensed paralegal practitioner is required to so indicate. A licensed paralegal practitioner is generally permitted to state that the licensed paralegal practitioner is a "specialist," practices a "specialty" or "specializes in" particular fields, but such communications are subject to the "false and misleading" standard applied in Rule 7.1 to communications concerning a licensed paralegal practitioner’s services.
