P.G. Man Guilty Of Providing Legal Services Without Being A Lawyer

Man gave legal advice under guise of being a lawyer

A Pacific Grove man has pleaded guilty to charges that arose after he provided legal advice even though he wasn’t a lawyer and forged a document in a lawsuit he brought forward, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Henry Leinen, 63, had been accused of running LRDI Legal Services in which he gave legal help and advice to people in state and federal courts, according to the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office.

He used the term “legal services” and didn’t disclose that he was not an attorney on his website, prosecutors said.
