The Tax Edge

An Arizona Hearing Panel has reprimanded an attorney not licensed in the state for his conduct in operating a company called "The Tax Edge." The company documents referred to the attorney as the legal document preparer and identified his credentials as "JD, LLM."

The attorney "took advantage of [a] Decedent, who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis, and was an alcoholic, so that he could write himself into Decedent's trust documents as a beneficiary.'

He was nowhere to be found when the bar began to look into his conduct.

But

If Respondent had been an Arizona attorney, the Hearing Panel would have ordered disbarment.
