On our sister Legal Profession Blog, Michael S. Frisch (Georgetown) quotes a Virginia state bar discipline matter in which the court distinguishes tax services from legal services:
On March 19, 2008, a three-judge panel of the Fairfax County Circuit Court imposed a public admonition with terms on Ernest Kenneth Wall. Mr. Wall violated the Rule of Professional Conduct that forbids misleading information in public communications concerning a lawyer's services. Mr. Wall must make revisions to solicitation letters, contracts, and website contents that he uses in his business, which provides tax services but not legal services.
