Unauthorised practice of law-Erin Brochovich 8 Years ago Karma: 0  
How is it this lady never got charged with unauthorised practice of law? She is a legal secretary, paralegal at best, and openly brags about giving legal advise and being a rainmaker for her attorney, how is she not in jail for unauthroised practice of law? Why does the media make her look like a hero when if anyone else did the exact same thing they'd be wearing a prison jumpsuit? The real lady isn't even pretty, so that can't be the answer.

I'm laughing.

The truth is that many CPAs, financial advisors, etc all engage in the unauthorized practice of law on a daily basis. Think of it, CPAs and title companies prepare deeds, articles of incorporation, and even loan agreements.

What about credit repair companies which negotiate loan terms for their clients.

What is the worst that can happen to Erin Brochovich? A fine, sanction or jail? The state bar would likely send her a letter asking her to seize and desist. Thats about it. If they did any more, they would fear that she would make another movie.......
