MARIETTA, Ga. — Cobb County sheriff’s officials say a Lithia Springs man is accused of posing as an attorney and even appearing in court on behalf of clients even though they say he doesn’t have a license to practice law.

Authorities tell The Marietta Daily Journal that 51-year-old Glover Carl Lewis was arrested Saturday.

Cobb County sheriff’s Col. Milton Beck said the investigation was prompted by complaints from people Lewis was supposed to represent. He’s charged with theft by deception and two counts of unauthorized practice of law.

An arrest warrant states that he received $1,700 in cash as payment to represent a man in a shoplifting case before Cobb Superior Court Judge Adele Grubbs.
