The Monmouth County Prosecutor alleges that Laurie Rieger of Chester, NJ formed a bogus company named PSL Consultation Group, LLC in the spring of 2005 and began accepting retainers. Even though she lived in Chester, her office was in Matawan. If you are going to pretend to be an attorney, why would you give yourself a big commute?
She is also alleged to have identified herself as an attorney in private meetings and in court documents. She is also alleged to have appeared on behalf of clients in at least one municipal court in Monmouth County and at a child support hearing in the Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold.
She was arrested and charged with practicing law without a license, a fourth-degree crime and theft by deception charge, a third degree crime. I really don’t buy the theft charge right now. I would have to see more information.
