Q: My partner and I are the name partners in our law firm, but he just got suspended for 30 days. Do I have to change the law firm's name and our stationary just for his short suspension?

A: Your partner can't practice law, so to continue using his name in the name of your law firm would be a material misrepresentation. Read ERs 7.1 and 7.5.
