Fake lawyer helped clients for 10 years, made partner at firm, led county bar association

Now you and I know the only way this can happen is if this lady had some very excellent professional help in some high places to cover up her strings of felonies as a fake attorney.

Dean Loren, a wrongfully disciplined lawyer who runs a close cable TV program and blogs about corruption in NY, has alerted me to the fact that the NY atty general was issuing fake law licenses to clouted individuals to go to court against honest litigants and do dirty work when they could not find attorneys that were willing to engage in unethical conduct, lies and smear campaigns.

Excerpt:

HUNTINGDON, Pa. (AP) — A former president of a county bar association has been convicted of using forged documents to pose as an estate lawyer for a decade even though she didn’t have a law license.
Kimberly Kitchen was convicted Thursday on charges of forgery, unauthorized practice of law and felony records tampering in Huntingdon County.
Kitchen fooled BMZ Law, a Huntingdon firm, by forging a law license, bar exam results, an email showing she attended Duquesne University law school and a check for a state attorney registration fee, prosecutors said.
The James Creek resident handled estate planning for more than 30 clients despite never attending law school, and she even served as president of the county bar association for a time. She made partner at BMZ before the fraud was discovered.
The judge on the case was brought in from another county, and the state attorney general, not county prosecutors, handled the case because Kitchen had been a fixture in the county courthouse for years.
BMZ officials testified at her two-day trial but haven’t commented publicly since issuing a statement in December 2014, when the Huntingdon Daily News first reported that Kitchen was being investigated. The firm’s voicemail said its offices were closed for Good Friday.
