Lawyer Charged With Stealing From Clients Arrested Again

Lawyer charged with stealing from clients rearrested for theft
The Journal News COMPLETELY LEGAL BLOG by Rebecca Baker - December 17, 2010

A Westchester County real estate lawyer who was charged in August with stealing more than $80,000 from a client is now accused of stealing $120,000 from two other clients. Bruce Mogavero, 54, of Eastchester was rearrested and arraigned in Yonkers City Court today on two additional felony counts of second-degree grand larceny, according to the Westchester County District Attorney’s office. Mogavero, whose office is on Xavier Drive in Yonkers, is accused of stealing $50,000 from an escrow account of a client he was representing in a divorce. The money came from a $455,000 check from a home sale in Tuckahoe that was supposed to stay in the escrow account until the divorce was settled. The theft allegedly happened between August 2008 and this April. Mogavero is also accused of stealing $70,000 from Wells Fargo bank, which had hired him as a settlement attorney for its bank branch in Bronxville, sometime between June 3 and August 19. Earlier this year, Mogavero was indicted for allegedly stealing $82,700 from a client who was selling an apartment in Yonkers. Prosecutors say he stole the money between March 1 and July 1 while representing a man selling his apartment at 485 Bronx River Road. Mogavero was released without bail following his arraignment this morning and is due back in court Jan. 12. He faces up to 15 years in state prison if convicted.

I just check this crooked Westchester lawyers standing with the OCA website www.nycourts.gov (hit 'attorneys') and they show he's still in good standing. Why wasn't the public warned he had criminal charges pending against him 6 months ago?

Deliberate malfeasance at OCA. Is there honor among parasites (NY lawyers)?

Memo to corrupt attorneys: when you steal make sure you pay the powers that be. Nothing pisses them off more than not getting a percentage of stolen money. How do you think judges put kids through college?
Not on judge's salary, that's for sure! But from a percentage of ALL stolen monies. Learn your lesson and pay up next time.

He's part of the pay to play boys in WP, he pays off in cash to have protection and he can do what he wants. And when he pays there are no cameras recording anything, that's for sure.

What startling information! I was under the impression that everyone knew that lawyers always steal from their clients, it's part of the game that they play...it's called billing!
