Specialties/Certifications/"Expertise":The South Carolina Bar is strong in regulating attorney advertising, so the term "specialty" or "specializing" is not recognized in but a handful of specific practice areas. Therefore, it would be better stated that Mr. Harmon focuses his practice on a variety of topics and would be glad to consult with any given potential client individually. Active Rain defaults to a Topic Heading of "Expertise" and this cannot be amended.
The Rules of Professional Conduct for South Carolina state in part:
FIELDS OF PRACTICE AND SPECIALIZATION
(a) A lawyer who is certified under the Rule on Lawyer Competence, Rule 408, SCACR, is entitled to advertise or state publicly in any manner otherwise permitted by these rules that the lawyer is certified as a specialist in the pertinent specialty field by the Supreme Court of South Carolina.
(b) A lawyer who is not certified as a specialist but who concentrates in, limits his or her practice to, or wishes to announce a willingness to accept cases in a particular field may so advertise or publicly state in any manner otherwise permitted by these rules. To avoid confusing or misleading the public and to protect the objectives of the South Carolina certified specialization program, any such advertisement or statements shall be strictly factual and shall not contain any form of the words “certified,” “specialist,” “expert,” or “authority” except as permitted by Rule 7.4(d).
