Allan Gallimore, 58, of Wilkinsburg, whose license to practice law was suspended in 2008, faces charges of theft, forgery and unauthorized practice of law.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Gallimore allegedly forged his retired partner's signature on court documents and inappropriately using money meant for estate funds.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Gallimore forged the signatures of two lawyers when he filed divorce, estate and other civil cases. Gallimore also is accused of taking $18,000 from the estate of one client.
Gallimore faces a preliminary hearing Monday morning in Pittsburgh Municipal Court.
