Legal aid firm accused of bilking clients
by UPI

DENVER - A company that offers legal services to low-income people nationwide is accused in a lawsuit filed in U.S. federal court in Denver of bilking its clients.

The lawsuit alleges that Legal Aid National Services of Aurora, Colo. -- or one of a dozen related entities -- violated such laws as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, federal copyright laws and federal false-advertising laws, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

The victims say they wired money or provided credit card information up front for legal services, but were left without an attorney or any legal help.

The lawsuit alleges figures in Legal Aid National Services have been involved in similar scams for the last 13 years. Among those named as defendants in the case is Kendrick Brown of Lone Tree, Colo.

The lawsuit claims Brown has a long list of aliases and "has previously been incarcerated in both Florida and California," the newspaper reported.
