Use of attorney's name by another
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 15
§ 492. Use of attorney's name by another. If an attorney knowingly
permits any person, not being his general law partner or a clerk in his
office, to sue out any process or to prosecute or defend any action in
his name, except as authorized by this section, such attorney, and every
person who shall so use his name, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

Whenever an action or proceeding is authorized by law to be prosecuted
or defended in the name of the people, or of any public officer, board
of officers, or municipal corporation, on behalf of another party, the
attorney-general, or district attorney, or attorney of such public
officer or board or corporation may permit any proceeding therein, to be
taken in his name by an attorney to be chosen by the party in interest.
