An IRS Enrolled Agent is an enrolled agent not a legal consultant.

A form filler outer is paralegal or public notary not a legal consultant.

Advising someone on their bankruptcy petition is practice of law.

Being unqualified to do any of things is just that.


Trial strategy and legal memoranda are normally directed at attorneys.

A legal consultant who seeks out lay people will not even be working very long.  Consumers want to know what you can do for them.  If you cannot represent them before a judge,  they will find out.  Legal work is results oriented.  If you cannot provide results, making a living will be difficult.  Now, intentional misrepresentation is a different matter.  Calling yourself an attorney when you are not licensed is not what I am talking about here. 

Assisting someone with his Chapter 7/13 petition is legal consultation.  Appearing with someone before an IRS agent, as an enrolled agent, is legal consultation.  Think outside the box, while following all the rules.

Says who?  Unless you are licensed as a Foreign Legal Consultant, California Immigration Consultant or are a Medical legal Consultant like a RN or MD, which you obviously are not, you will be engaging unlicensed practice of the law if you "consult"" with unsuspecting clients who think you are proving some legal advice of value.  Consulting is providing legal advice, you need a license to do so.

An employed paralegal earns more than an unemployed lawyer.

If you are going to practice in Alabama, sounds like a great plan.

They can't pass or qualify to take the bar but have some sort of JD - we've given them a ton of suggestions.  No need to beat a dead horse.

I think all you need is a BA (or less) and pass the exam since LPOs seem to function mainly as escrow officers.

Here is Rule 12 again, your read the wrong program, this is for non lawyers who want to be LPOs.

http://www.courts.wa.gov/court_rules/?fa=court_rules.display&group=ga&set=apr&ruleid=gaapr12

You obviously do not need a JD becuase this does not lead to being a lawyer.

The purpose of this rule is to authorize certain lay persons to
select, prepare and complete legal documents incident to the closing of real
estate and personal property transactions and to prescribe the conditions of
and limitations upon such activities.

That is the law clerk program which leads to being an attorney and is not the same as Limited Practice Officer.  Limited Practice Officer is under thier Rule 12, it does not require a JD.
