The "ad see lawyer" Nest group showed three sons in Court: ad advice: "Don't listen to any name --See a lawyer.
"It is speculated that this proposal will apply to the guess doctor who complains to a lawyer friend about someone who has sought medical advice from him at the party.

The Italian doctor's advertisement is controlled by Ordine Medici, equivalent to the American Medical Association, which sets the standard for the size of the advertisement.
In most cases, these restrictions are limited to the name and address in the classified telephone directory.
Doctors are not allowed to advertise on radio or television, but some people, including heart experts, have annoyed colleagues for appearing on interview shows.
Of course, if you do something illegal, advertising can cause you trouble even if you are not a real professional.
London's wake-up Daily Telegraph recently reported that a card offering "big boxes for sale" led police to the Soho apartment, where the wife of a local transport official was a call girl.
