“The Hallmark Kid” Arrested For Pretending To Be A Lawyer

Ryan Adam Lipner is running for Broward Circuit Court against Judge Stacy Ross. According to the law, Lipner cannot serve as a Broward County Circuit Court Judge because he is not a lawyer. But Broward officials say lacking a law degree did not stop Lipner from practicing law.

In July 2014, Lipner was arrested for Grand Theft in the first degree and criminal solicitation for practicing law without a license. According to the arrest report, Lipner took money from a woman in exchange for legal advice. The case is currently pending in the mental health court.

REDBROWARD reported on Lipner’s mental issues and legal antics including an obsession with operating Hallmark Card stores without permission.

Only in Broward.
