The Florida Bar proposes changes to existing rules that apply to lawyers participating in for-profit lawyer referral services. One of the changes recommended to this Court would replace the phrase “lawyer referral service” with “qualifying provider.” This Court had earlier directed the Bar to propose a rule that would require that lawyers participate in only for-profit lawyer referral services owned or operated by a Florida Bar member. The Bar committees discussed that issue but ultimately did not include it in the recommendations to this Court.
