Identity Theft of California Certified Court Interpreters

Updated: Jul 3

In light of the recent multiple cases of certified court interpreters being impersonated at depositions, AIJIC's attorneys have been communicating with the agency listed in the Proof of service for all these depositions. Please click on the link below to read our Cease-and-Desist letter to the language service provider. Its name has been redacted, although it has been disclosed in private Facebook interpreters' groups. Also redacted, for privacy reasons, are the names of the impersonated interpreters and the court reporters who gave declarations under oath attesting to these instances of identity theft.

Last month, our attorneys contacted the insurance companies and law firms involved with these cases where the impersonation occurred to advise them on these identity theft instances. Shortly after, a lawyer representing the agency reached out to our counsel to inform them that they have terminated the business relationship with the subcontractor who was engaging in this unlawful practice.

We will remain vigilant in our efforts to make sure it doesn't happen again. If you learn of any cases where a certified interpreter has been impersonated, please email us at
