Attorney Chris Riser of Quatloos/ Quatloosia (aka Financial & Tax Fraud Education Associates Inc.) unlicensed to practice law as UK solicitor

Mr. Chris Riser and his partner, Jay Adkisson, both US attorneys and Gulf war/ Viet Nam veterans respectively, run a virulent anti-fraud campaign via their site Quatloos/ Quatloosia under their company Financial & Tax Fraud Education Associates, Inc. Essentially, the two publish anonymously whatever they want against those they deem to be ‘fraudsters’ allowing no right of redress whatsoever.

The attorneys are licensed by the bars of Texas, Oklahoma and California (Jay Adkisson) and for Chris Riser, Georgia and North Carolina. They also have high profiles with organisations such as the American Bar Association, US Senate committee on Financial Crimes, American Bar Association’s Asset Protection Planning Committee, California Association of Judgment Professionals, U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, American College of  Obstetricians and Gynecologists, IRS Criminal Investigations. However, although Mr. Riser advertises himself out on his website and in various other advertisements that he is admitted to practice law as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England, in fact he is not so qualified and has never been authorised to act as a solicitor as confirmed by the UK Solicitor’s Regulation Authority (SRA) today:-

It is not clear how many of Mr.Riser’s clients have been defrauded by his representation that he was qualified to act as a UK Solicitor, but judging from various complaints on internet complaint sites from members of the US public upon him and his partner, Jay Adkisson, it is likely that the two will be facing criminal charges soon.

In recent years, both attorneys have come under fire from critics who say that their site Quatloos/ Quatloosia is a hate site designed to destroy their competitors and to gain unfair advantages with clients by publishing defamatory remarks about their competitors on the site under the cover of protection of defamation under the US Freedom of Communication Act.
