Here in Virginia we’re unethical.  We can advertise more than that.  Most of the big guys don’t want the work that would come from a yellow page ad anyway.  I was thinking of putting out the string of multi-colored triangle flags out front and doing a TV commercial in a funny costume with my dog.  Yeah, that’s the ticket!  J

I believe what Mr. Scholl is referring to is a clause in the CA Business Practice Code (or whatever the heck it's called...) says something about being able to place your name in the White and Yellow Pages as a single line entry, and that taking out a full page ad as some personal injury lawyers do, is considered unethical.  


It seems to fall along the same line as using the term "Architect" or "Engineer" when a person is licensed as neither, but may certainly have plenty of "experience."


If I had more time, I'd peruse the CA website for the code section...

In California, advertising for professional services is somewhat controlled.

Stan, could you be a little more specific?
