Bellmore Attorney Steals One Client's Settlement & Another's Down Payment

On January 30, 2018, an attorney from Bellmore, N.Y., Nancy Enoksen, age 49, was convicted by a jury of stealing $187,000 in personal injury funds awarded to her client. After a 7 day trial, it took the jury 90 minutes to convict the thief. Between August 2013 and April 2014 Enoksen withdrew funds from her escrow account without her client's knowledge to pay for her vacation, luxury car leases and shopping trips to clothing stores. She will be sentenced on this Class C felony conviction next month.

This is the very same Nancy Enoksen who allegedly stole another client's down payment escrowed in advance of the sale of a home. In January 2015, a client retained Enoksen to represent them in the sale of their Queens County home. The buyer's provided Enoksen with a cashier's check for $40,000. When the time came for the closing Enoksen failed to transfer the down payment to her client's new attorney. According to LIBN.com in August 2014, bank records revealed that Enoksen transferred the money from her attorney escrow account to her operating account. She was charged with 3rd degree Larceny. It wasn't until April 21, 2015, that the Appellate Division issued an Order immediately suspending Enoksen from the practice of law to prevent her from ripping off other client's. Now that she has been convicted of a felony, Enoksen will automatically be disbarred.
