Steven Hamburg, 59, of Bronx, a former attorney who was disbarred last year, was arraigned in White Plains City Court on Friday, September 06, 2019, where he was charged with 3 felony counts of third-degree grand larceny in connection to stealing from his victims’ escrow funds accounts.

It is alleged that between September 2015 and September 2019, Hamburg took money from 3 separate victims in connection to 3 separate real estate transactions.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. said that in the first case, Hamburg deposited one victim’s check for $15,000 in his IOLA account, though instead of using it to complete an intended transaction, he stole the money from his victim, a Yonkers resident.

In the second incident, Hamburg allegedly deposited a $50,000 check for a Hartsdale resident and stole those funds. In the third case, beginning in May 2017, Hamburg deposited a $47,000 check from a Dobbs Ferry victim and allegedly stole the money again.

Following his arraignment, Hamburg was released and is scheduled to return to court on Friday, September 27, 2019.
