Most unauthorized practice cases involve those who are not licensed in Illinois. Here, the respondent, Neil Jordan Greene, was licensed in Illinois but is charged with practicing in Indiana, where he was not licensed. The attorney got into trouble by performing collection work for an Indiana hospital. The ARDC alleges that his letterhead did not make it clear that he was not licensed in Indiana. He was charged with violations of Rule 5.5(a) (unauthorized practice of law) and 7.1 (misleading communications to Indiana residents that led them to believe he was a licensed attorney in that state).
