A lawyer shall not make a false or misleading
communication about the lawyer or the lawyer’s services. A communication is
false or misleading if it:

      (a) Contains a material misrepresentation of fact
or law, or omits a fact necessary to make the statement considered as a whole
not materially misleading;

      (b) Is likely to create an unjustified or
unreasonable expectation about results the lawyer can or has achieved, which
shall be considered inherently misleading for the purposes of this Rule, or
states or implies that the lawyer can achieve results by means that violate the
Rules of Professional Conduct or other law;

      (c) Compares the lawyer’s services with other
lawyers’ services, unless the comparison can be factually substantiated; or

      (d) Contains a testimonial or endorsement which
violates any portion of this Rule.

      [Added; effective May 1, 2006; as amended; effective
September 1, 2007.]

      Rule 7.2.  Advertising.

      (a) Subject to the requirements of Rule 7.1, a
lawyer may advertise services through the public media, such as a telephone
directory, legal directory, newspaper or other periodical, billboards and other
signs, radio, television and recorded messages the public may access by dialing
a telephone number, or through written or electronic communication not
involving solicitation as prohibited by Rule 7.3.

      These Rules shall not apply to any advertisement
broadcast or disseminated in another jurisdiction in which the advertising
lawyer is admitted if such advertisement complies with the rules governing
lawyer advertising in that jurisdiction and the advertisement is not intended
primarily for broadcast or dissemination within the State of Nevada.

      (b) If the advertisement uses any actors to
portray a lawyer, members of the law firm, clients, or utilizes depictions of
fictionalized events or scenes, the same must be disclosed. In the event actors
are used, the disclosure must be sufficiently specific to identify which
persons in the advertisement are actors, and the disclosure must appear for the
duration in which the actor(s) appear in the advertisement.

      (c) All advertisements and written communications
disseminated pursuant to these Rules shall identify the name of at least one
lawyer responsible for their content.

      (d) Every advertisement and written communication
that indicates one or more areas of law in which the lawyer or law firm practices
shall conform to the requirements of Rule 7.4.

      (e) Every advertisement and written communication
indicating that the charging of a fee is contingent on outcome or that the fee
will be a percentage of the recovery shall contain the following disclaimer if

frequently than annually, the advertised fee or range of fees shall be honored
for no less than one year following publication.

      (g) A lawyer may make statements describing or

written communications. However, such statements are subject to proof of verification,
to be provided at the request of the state bar or a client or prospective

      (h) Any statement or disclaimer required by these
rules shall be made in each language used in the advertisement or writing with
respect to which such required statement or disclaimer relates; provided,
however, the mere statement that a particular language is spoken or understood
shall not alone result in the need for a statement or disclaimer in that

      (i) Statement regarding past results.  If
the advertisement contains any reference to past successes or results obtained,
the communicating lawyer or member of the law firm must have served as lead
counsel in the matter giving rise to the recovery, or was primarily responsible
for the settlement or verdict. The advertisement shall also contain a
disclaimer that past results do not guarantee, warrant, or predict future

      If the past successes or results obtained include a
monetary sum, the amount involved must have been actually received by the
client, and the reference must be accompanied by adequate information regarding
the nature of the case or matter and the damages or injuries sustained by the
client, and if the gross amount received is stated, the attorney fees and
litigation expenses withheld from the amount must be stated as well.

      (j) Disclaimers.  In addition
to any specific requirements under these rules, any disclosures or disclaimers
required by these rules to appear in an advertisement or unsolicited written
communication must be of sufficient size to be clearly legible and prominently
placed so as to be conspicuous to the intended viewer. If the disclosure or
disclaimer is televised or broadcast in an electronic medium, it shall be
displayed for a sufficient time to enable the viewer to see and read the
disclosure or disclaimer. If the disclosure or disclaimer is spoken aloud, it
shall be plainly audible to the intended listener. If the statement is made on
a website, the required words or statements shall appear on the same page as
the statement requiring the disclosure or disclaimer.

      (k) The following information in advertisements
and written communications shall be presumed not to violate the provisions of
Rule 7.1:

             (1) Subject to the requirements of this
Rule and Rule 7.5, the name of the lawyer or law firm, a listing of lawyers
associated with the firm, office addresses and telephone numbers, office and
telephone service hours, and a designation such as “attorney” or “law firm.”

intended primarily for the use of the legal profession of such information as
has traditionally been included in these publications.

      (m) A copy or recording of an advertisement or
written or recorded communication shall be submitted to the State Bar in
accordance with Rule 7.2A and shall be retained by the lawyer or law firm which
advertises for 4 years after its last dissemination along with a record of when
and where it was used.

      (n) A lawyer shall not give anything of value to
a person for recommending the lawyer’s services, except that a lawyer may pay

or law firm’s failure to file an advertisement in accordance with paragraph (a)
is grounds for disciplinary action. In addition, for purposes of disciplinary

      Rule 7.2B.  Volunteer Advisory Committees; Pre-Dissemination Review.

      (a) Standing Lawyer Advertising Advisory
Committees.  The board of governors shall create two Standing
Lawyer Advertising Advisory Committees, one for each district north and south
as defined in Supreme Court Rule 100, to
review filings submitted under Rule 7.2A and to respond to written requests
from an advertising lawyer or law firm voluntarily seeking an advance opinion
regarding that lawyer’s compliance with the advertising rules.

      The board of governors may promulgate bylaws, rules of
procedure, and reasonable fees for advance opinions to offset the
administrative costs of these committees, as it deems necessary and proper. A
state bar staff member or members shall be designated to assist with
implementing this Rule, including but not limited to providing administrative
support to the standing committees, and receiving and coordinating requests
submitted under subparagraph (c)(1) of this Rule.

             (1) Committee composition.  Each
committee shall have a minimum of 5 volunteer members, 4 of whom shall be
members of the State Bar of Nevada and 1 of whom may be a non-lawyer. Each
committee shall also have a minimum of 5 members to serve as ad hoc or conflict
replacements when needed. Members must have a full-time business or residential
presence in the respective district.

                   (i) Appointment.  Members
shall be appointed by the board of governors and serve 2-year terms, subject to
reappointment at the board’s discretion. No member shall serve a lifetime total
of more than 12 years. Members may be removed by the board of governors for

                   (ii) Minimum duties.  Each
committee shall meet at least monthly on a predetermined date, and as often
thereafter as necessary, to review all matters before it in a timely fashion.
Advance opinions shall be provided within 30 days of submission of the request
or sooner. Requests to expedite review of advertisements shall be granted
whenever possible within reason. The board of governors may promulgate a
procedure and attach an added fee for expedited requests.

      (b) Review of filings; advisory opinions to
bar counsel.  The committee may issue advisory opinions on any
advertisement filed with the state bar. If the committee finds that an
advertisement does not comply with these Rules, it may issue an advisory
opinion to bar counsel within 30 days of its review. The opinion must include
the basis for the Committee’s finding of noncompliance and a recommendation
that bar counsel issue a notice to the lawyer or law firm requesting a
correction or withdrawal of the advertisement. If bar counsel accepts the
committee’s recommendation and issues the notice, the advertising lawyer or law
firm has 30 days to respond to bar counsel’s notice. Bar counsel may initiate
appropriate disciplinary action if the lawyer or law firm fails to file a
timely response.

      (c) Pre-dissemination review.  A
lawyer or law firm may file a written request with the state bar seeking an
advance opinion on whether a proposed advertisement complies with these Rules.
The request shall be made in the form and manner designated by the state bar.
Upon receipt of such request, the state bar shall submit it to the appropriate
Standing Lawyer Advertising Advisory Committee for its review.

             (1) Advance opinion.  Within
30 days of submission, the committee shall issue an advance opinion to the
lawyer or law firm submitting the request for pre-dissemination review. The
opinion shall include a finding of whether the proposed advertisement is in
compliance with these Rules. If the Committee finds that the advertisement is
not in compliance, then the opinion shall also include the basis for the
finding and instructions on how the proposed advertisement can be corrected.
Such an adverse opinion must also notify the lawyer or law firm of an
opportunity for a hearing on the committee’s finding of noncompliance and the
procedure for requesting such a hearing.

            (2) Appeal.  An adverse
advance opinion of one committee may be appealed by the requestor in writing to
the other committee, which decision shall be controlling.

      (d) Limitations; when binding on discipline
authority.  The committees created under this Rule are
primarily dedicated to providing independent, volunteer peer advance opinions
to lawyers upon request as a safe-harbor to future disciplinary action only. No
request for an advance opinion shall be granted after a disciplinary
investigation is commenced on the subject advertisement. In the event an
opinion is inadvertently issued by a committee during or after a disciplinary
review is in progress, the decision of any disciplinary panel convened pursuant
to Supreme Court Rule 105 shall be

      An advance opinion of noncompliance issued under this
Rule shall not be binding on any disciplinary panel or bar counsel. An advance
finding of compliance is binding on the disciplinary panel and bar counsel in
favor of the advertising lawyer provided that the representations, statements,
materials, facts and written assurances received in connection therewith are
true and not misleading. An advance opinion of compliance constitutes admissible
evidence if offered by a party.

      (e) Annual report.  The board
of governors shall file an annual report with the clerk of this court that
addresses, among other things, the state bar’s efforts to enforce the rules,

gain. The term “solicit” includes contact in person, by telephone, telegraph or
facsimile, by letter or other writing, or by other communication directed to a
specific recipient.

      (b) Direct or indirect written advertising.  Any
direct or indirect written mail communication or advertising circular
distributed to persons not known to need legal services of the kind provided by
the lawyer in a particular matter, but who are so situated that they might in
general find such services useful, shall contain the disclaimers required by
Rule 7.2. The disclaimers shall be in a type size and legibility sufficient to
cause the disclaimers to be conspicuous.

      (c) Additional disclaimer on mailers or
written advertisements or communications.  Direct or indirect
mail envelope, and written mail communications or advertising circulars shall
contain, upon the outside of the envelope and upon the communication side of
each page of the communication or advertisement, in red ink, the following

litigation or in a proceeding arising out of the incident is prohibited in
Nevada within 30 days of the date of the incident. After 30 days following the
incident, any such communication must comply with paragraphs (b) and (c) of
this Rule and must comply with all other Rules of Professional Conduct.

      This provision limiting contact with an injured
individual or the legal representative thereof applies as well to lawyers or
law firms or any associate, agent, employee, or other representative of a

that may defend and/or indemnify said defendants.
