Solicitor general addresses fake legal experts targeting immigrants

The Gwinnett County Solicitor General is holding a press conference to address fake legal experts who are giving harmful advice to the immigrant communities.

These “legal experts” are providing advice for a fee and scamming immigrants in Gwinnett County. They pose as legal consultants, legal office managers or lawyers. 

They take advantage of the poor and uninformed who are desperate for legal advice, often leading to irreparable damage to a client’s claims or basic rights. It is a crime to provide legal services without a law license.

The Solicitor’s Office plans to speak at the press conference to help educate the public about fake legal professionals so they do not fall victim to this scam. 

A number of speakers will be present at the press conference including the Gwinnett County Solicitor General, a Georgia Bar investigator and several attorneys.
