Bogus Lawyer in Florida

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ A Fort Lauderdale man who never
finished college passed himself off as a Harvard Law School
graduate and bilked clients out of more than $50,000.

Robert Brady was charged with six counts of unlicensed practice
of law and organized fraud, according to the sheriff's office. He
is being held on $650,000 bond.

Broward County Sheriff's authorities say the 26-year-old Brady
posed as an attorney and collected retainer fees and other payments
from clients that included respected lawyers, corporate executives
and a physician. He also convinced a local mortgage broker to
obtain a black American Express card for him, which he charged
nearly $20,000 in goods and services to.

Brady's previous arrests include grand theft and uttering a
forged instrument.
