North Carolina lawyers may participate in a directory of lawyers on the Internet if the information about the lawyer in the directory is truthful. RPC 241 (January 24, 1997). To avoid misleading a user of the directory from another jurisdiction, the listing should indicate the jurisdictions in which the lawyer is licensed to practice law and the geographic location of the lawyer’s or law firm’s principal office.Although Rule 2.5 prohibits communications implying that a lawyer is a specialist in an area of practice unless the lawyer is certified as a specialist, a lawyer who is not a certified specialist may indicate areas of concentration or interest in a listing on the directory
