Stamford attorney arrested for stealing money

Morris Glucksman

STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – A Stamford attorney is behind bars for stealing thousands of dollars from a family through an estate trust.

The family of the deceased mother and son reported a problem with the trust in November 2015. The Stamford Police Financial Crimes Unit discovered 68-year-old Morris Glucksman forged several signatures and utilized a forged notary stamp.

The family asked Glucksman to provide proper paperwork showing that he was the sole heir and executor since 2013.

According to police, Glucksman withdrew $25,000 from the deceased mother’s account one day after her death. Glucksman also sold many articles of sports memorabilia totaling $33,000 in cash, but did not put any of the money into the trust.

According to court documents, Glucksman rented out a Stamford property owned by the trust for several years, collected rent, and pocketed the money. He later sold the Stamford property, and is accused of not giving any of the money to the trust.

Glucksman is being charged with larceny and forgery. He was given a $50,000 bond.
