Greetings, This is NH's Fake Lawyer writing in, I thought some readers may be wanting to acquire some real news rather than a bias release from the Attorney Generals Office.(what ever happened to journalism anyway)
You see, I have never represented myself as anyone with education leaning towards a law degree. I have never claimed to be a lawyer and in fact most of my clients trusted me more as a result. I have never taken power of attorney or filed an appearance on anyone's behalf. I have only helped Pro Se litigants representing themselves and all of my craigslist ads were extremely poignant in this respect.
Before I continue I should bring to the forefront that I have been constructing legal documents since I was 18 years old and have had them checked over numerous times by lawyers who approved my construction as "airtight" and "impenetrable".
After I became significantly acquainted with NH marital law I offered to help some friends who could not afford an attorney to file some documents etc. They did very well in court and told their friends who wanted my help etc. I eventually (In order to keep helping these people) began charging for my services. First $40 an hour then $60, then $100.
These might seem like high hourly rates for someone who was not educated in the subject to be charging, but that's just it - I was very good at developing and managing this kind of civil case and my clients were all winning and getting exactly what they wanted. In fact the apposing party's council would almost always begin to copy my scratch written content so as to not under provide for their client, whom trust me was getting a lot less for their money. There are still absolutely no damages created by me rendering legal services!
It is pretty clear that when an attorney charges $387.00 for an apearence that they have typeset and I build one from scratch at $100 an hour and my bill is only $2.50 that there is somthing very fishy going on here!
All of my craigslist ads shed some of this type of knowledge on my readers and worked wonderfully as a marketing tool (because it was true).
My services were not reported by a previous client but by an out of work attorney, Peter Smith (Dover) who could not stand to see this unbiased light shinning in his unethical and over billed neck of the woods.
I am happy to make myself available to anyone seeking an interview with some ability to publicize the information- there is a wealth of knowledge that supports my case and unfortunately diminishes New Hampshire's standing as they have been violating constitutional law for many years now- equal justice for all is a term that I feel very invigorated about and I hope most others will join me in my fight for non bias liberties for all Americans and world residents abroad.

Good for you Jake. As long as the Bar Association continues to pass ignorant "attorneys" as actually representing clients rather than being in bed with the courts... More people like you will rise up and bring Liberty and Justice to the American courts... Coming soon to a court near you: THE FULLY INFORMED JURY. Tyrants be warned.
