Supreme Court Addresses Website Offer Of “FREE Consultation”

Article: January 4, 2013  |  Malpractice Alerts Archived

The Ohio Supreme Court recently issued a public reprimand to two lawyers who had advertised on their website for a “free consultation” without disclosing that they would begin billing for that initial meeting once the prospective client had signed a fee agreement. (See Cincinnati Bar Association v. Mezher, Ohio, No 2012-0684, 12/3/12).
