Boise-Based White Hat Group Will Pay Restitution For Unlicensed Law Practice

Posted By on Wed, Oct 30, 2013 at 9:39 AM

After being accused of unauthorized practice of law, the Boise-based White Hat Group, which advertises itself as "team of experienced professionals dedicated to giving legal support," has agreed to pay restitution to former customers.

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden announced the legal settlement today, which also "prohibits White Hat Group and its owner Mark Wicklund from providing legal advice and performing other acts that constitute the practice of law in Idaho."

Customers had complained to the AG's office that the White Hat Group didn't perform services for which consumers had paid. Additionally, Wasden alleged that Wicklund falsely represented that he was qualified to represent consumers in legal matters when he is not.

Wicklund and the White Hat Group have also agreed to reimburse the Attorney General's office for the cost of the investigation.

Former customers who believe they're eligible to receive restitution under the settlement are asked to file a consumer complaint before Monday, Dec. 2, with the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division.
