New Jersey: Committee on Lawyer Advertising says lawyers can't toot their own horn

Basically, if you are a lawyer in New Jersey (especially, I assume, if you are a divorce lawyer, wink wink) you cannot go around tooting your horn as being a “superlawyer” or “best divorce lawyer” or “leading in the field lawyer” unless the accolade comes from a source that can be substantiated. Do you think that Divorce Saloon passes muster? We have ranked lawyers in New York on our Titans 10 List¬†which actually needs to be updated this year (and we need to do some interviews with some of these lawyers too!) But can lawyers use our ranking in their advertising? This I do not know. But very interesting story in the ABA Journal this morning on this issue of advertising.
