Richard Shapero, a Kentucky attorney, applied to the state Attorneysâ€™ Advertising Commission for approval of a letter that he proposed to send â€œto potential clients who have had a foreclosure suit filed against them.â€ The letter advised the clients that federal law may prevent creditors from taking immediate action and that the recipients of the letters could call Shaperoâ€™s office for free information on how to keep their homes. The commission would not approve the letter because Professional Conduct Rules prohibited direct-mail solicitation by lawyers if the mail was directed to specific recipients rather than to a general group of persons known to need the particular kind of legal services offered. The Kentucky Supreme Court affirmed the commissionâ€™s finding. Shapero appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, claiming that the rule violated attorneysâ€™ rights to free speech. Did Shapero succeed in his claim?
