Unauthorized Practice


The unauthorized practice of law is the rendering of legal services for another person by any person not admitted to the practice in Ohio under Rule I and not granted active status Under Rule VI, or certified under Rule II, Rule IX, or Rule XI of the Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio.

The Board on the Unauthorized Practice of Law of the Supreme Court acting on its own behalf, or, through the Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee of any regularly organized bar association, such as the Findlay-Hancock County Bar Association Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee, shall receive evidence, preserve the record, make findings, and submit recommendations concerning complaints of unauthorized practice of law.

Any Hancock County, Ohio, resident who believes that a person has practiced law in violation of Ohio licensure requirements may file a written complaint with the Findlay/Hancock County Bar Association Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee.  Please call (419) 424-9500 and leave a message on the answering machine for the Grievance Committee and an appropriate person will respond to your inquiry.
