The member shall report a change of address, telephone number or e-mail address online. ����� 4. Similarly, an unsubstantiated comparison of the lawyer’s services or fees with the services or fees of other lawyers may be misleading if presented with such specificity as would lead a reasonable person to conclude that the comparison can be substantiated.

The obligation to return any portion of a fee does not apply, however, if the lawyer charges a reasonable nonrefundable fee. [4a] A nonrefundable fee is one that is paid in advance and earned by the lawyer when paid. However, it is not improper for a lawyer to protect the right to collect a fee for his or her services by the assertion of legally permissible liens, even though by doing so the lawyer may acquire an interest in the outcome of litigation. It also has a legitimate interest in the conduct of judicial proceedings, particularly in matters of general public concern.

Beecher's [5,6] exploration of ethical lapses in medical treatment and research, and the development of the artificial kidney machine at the University of Washington -- and the "God Committee" in Seattle to determine how to allocate the limited number of machines to the large number of needy patients [7] -- led to heightened awareness of ethical issues, many of them related to human trials of novel drug therapy or to the adverse effects of medical progress.
