CPA Violates Unauthorized Practice Rules

The Ohio Supreme Court imposed sanctions on a certified public accountant for engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. The court web page provides the following summary:

"[The CPA], who is not licensed as an attorney, admitted preparing and filing documents on behalf of multiple business clients including articles of incorporation, articles of organization and certificates of dissolution. The Court imposed a civil penalty of $8,200 on [the CPA], representing a $100 fine for each of 82 instances in which he admitted having performed services that are restricted to persons who have met the educational and licensing requirements for admission to the practice of law."
