Two Referrals

On review of a recommendation of its Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee, the Rhode Island Supreme Court has referred a non-attorney for possible criminal prosecution and directed Disciplinary Counsel to investigate a bar member for his relationship with the non-attorney. The court adopted the committee's findings of fact.

The non-attorney is fluent in Spanish and had worked as a paralegal/translator for the attorney. The committee made findings in connection with a series of complaints and after review of the advertisements for business in various media. (Mike Frisch)
