“Except as provided in Rule 31.3, a person, entity, or ABS who is not authorized to practice law in Arizona under Rule 31.1(a), (c), or Rule 31.3 must not:
(a) engage in the practice of law or provide legal services in Arizona; or
(b) use the designations “lawyer,” “attorney at law,” “counselor at law,” “law,” “law office,” “J.D.,” “Esq.,” “alternative business structure (ABS),” or other equivalent words that are reasonably likely to induce others to believe that the person or entity is authorized to engage in the practice of law or provide legal services in Arizona.”
