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.
