It’s not difficult to bump into a celebrity in Los Angeles, California. It’s the home of so many actors, musicians and otherwise famous faces that you can take a vacation there and see at least one of them while strolling along the streets.
But that’s not exactly the case for this L.A.-based lawyer. Svitlana Sangary apparently got tired of waiting around for a celebrity to need her services, or y’know just hang out, so she used Photoshop to at least make it seem like she had an A-list clientele.
Images of Sangary with over 50 celebrities have been published on her official website. They’re all very small and feature varying levels of Photoshop skill.
L.A. courts have requested she remove the doctored photos and recommend a six-month suspension and three years of probation for the deceptive advertising.
Acting as her own counsel throughout the proceedings, she has yet to actually show up to court.
Instead she submitted written rebuttals to the charges, including an email from President Obama requesting a $3 donation to his campaign as proof of their acquaintance. Her writing also includes lengthy essays about Wikipedia, lemonade, her apparently blind mother in the Ukraine and the film Black Swan.

Unsurprisingly, the court was not convinced by her defense. She now has 30 days to appeal their ruling before her case it brought to the California Supreme Court.
