Police: Disbarred Lawyer charged with practicing law

State Police in Princetown have arrested a Colonie man for allegedly practicing law after being disbarred.

Police say Carl Holsberger, 58, was disbarred from practicing law in 1996 after Appellate Division of State Supreme Court ruled that he misled clients and fabricated a Court order.

He was arrested again in 2004 for similar charges.

State Police say, since early 2013, Holsberger mislead a client, providing legal documentation and emails to indicate that the client would be receiving a court ordered settlement.

Holsberger was arrested on forgery charges, as well as practicing law without a license, and perjury.  State Police are asking if anyone else believes they may have been misled by Holsberger to contact State Police at (518) 630-1712.
