Fraudulent immigration lawyer?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Francisco, CA

In the bay area their is a woman whom claims to be an immigration lawyer but is not. She has a law degree in another country. The amount of money she is asking for to help people is outstanding. She has a radio show and plenty of followers due to her fear tactics she applies when speaking on air. Can anything be done with a person like this?

    Answered . Contacting the CA state bar will be helpful if she is an attorney in CA. If she is actually not a licensed attorney, then the state bar will state that they cannot do anything. I would then contact either the city attorney as another suggested or the CA Attorney General who investigates the unlawful practice of law.
