LOS ANGELES – A disbarred attorney accused of practicing law while ineligible and unlawfully receiving client fees from multiple victims is expected to be arraigned this afternoon, the District Attorney’s Office announced. Gerard Lionel Garcia-Barron, 46 (dob 11/29/65), of La Mirada is charged in case No. BA396435 with 17 felony counts including grand theft of personal property, obtaining money, labor or property by false pretenses and unauthorized practice of law. The defendant is expected to be arraigned in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. Deputy District Attorney Alfred Coletta of the Justice System Integrity Division is assigned to the case. The alleged crimes, which involve seven victims, occurred between July 2008 and January 2012. Garcia-Barron – deemed ineligible to practice law by the State Bar of California in May 2010 and disbarred in January 2011 – allegedly solicited clients and accepted about $7,500 from victims in retainer fees. The defendant purportedly met clients at coffee houses in and around the Alhambra area, according to the Alhambra Police Department. Garcia-Barron was arrested April 11 by Alhambra police working in conjunction with investigators of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation. The defendant’s bail is recommended at $160,000. If convicted as charged, Garcia-Barron faces a maximum state prison term of 7 years.

JERRY GARCIA, which was what he called himself when he offered his legal services is a FRAUD and THREAT TO THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY. HE PREYS ON THE ELDERLY AND PEOPLE WHO DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH. HE ROBBED ME OF $7,500.00 WHEN I NEEDED AN ATTORNEY ON A $500,000.00CIVIL CASE. I LOST MY CASE AND MY HOME BECAUSE HE NEVER FILED ANY COURT PAPERS ON MY BEHALF. HE WAS SUBSEQUENTLY ARRESTED AND ONLY SERVED 30 DAYS IN JAIL AFETR BEING FOUND GUILTY OF 17 CHARGES OF FRAUD. I HOPE THAT WHO EVER READS THIS DOES NOT HIRE HIM AS HE IS PROHIBITED FROM SOLICITING ANY LEGAL CASES OR FEES BY THE CA STATE BAR AND CRIMINAL COURTS. IF YOU RUN INTO Gerard Lionel Garcia-Barron, AND HE TELLS YOU HE IS AN ATTORNEY, IMMEDIATELY REPORT HIM TO THE NEAREST POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THEY WILL ARREST HIM FOR SOLICITING AND POSING AS AN ATTORNEY. PLEASE HELP KEEP THIS SERIOUS CRIMINAL OFF THE STREETS.
