UNLICENSED PRACTICE OF LAW
UPDATE: DIET SODA WILL KILL YOU. More in our continuing campaign against the slow poisoning of the american public by soda companies.
The article is here.
So- drink diet soda and get fatter. What a deal!
UPL. Unlicensed practice of law. Non-lawyers charging individuals to assist them in filling out legal forms and/or motions.
That's what several attorneys are saying the insidious Court Options is doing in charging clients to attend "workshops" to fill out and file seal and expunge motions.
Check out their website here and let us know what you think.
Court options directly solicits clients with letters that make it very clear they can do what lawyers can do for less. The aim and substance of "the pitch" is to not waste money on attorneys.
Should the Florida Bar (motto: "Dues Please") step in?
Should a group of attorneys get together and sue Court Options.
Or should you all sit around and watch your business being taken away by a bunch of unregulated semi-professionals?
It's your money and your clients that are being taken.
