VIRGINIA UPL OPINION 101


Non-Attorney Responses to Garnishment Summons on Behalf of a Corporation.

It is not the unauthorized practice of law for a non-attorney employee of a corporation to provide factual responses to a garnishment summons on behalf of the corporation. [See Rules of Court, Part 6, § I(A)(3)] Such an activity presents no occasion for the employee to argue legal principles or attack the legal efficacy of the process.
