Question Presented: 

A lawyer may have distributed in a lay publication, a dissertation on a legal subject of general interest. While his name and the fact that he is a lawyer may be shown, his office address, however, should not be; nor should he make himself available, either directly or indirectly, to answer specific questions of individuals or accept employment shortly thereafter with reference to the general subject matter covered but, on the other hand, should urge the readers to avail themselves of their own counsel. And, under such circumstances, the article may even be permissibly co-authored with a layman.
