Barry D. Friedman, 57, was charged with theft by deception, unauthorized practice of law, and misapplication of entrusted funds, said acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo.
Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Financial Crimes Unit received information from the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics about Friedman, Calo said.
In January 2018, the New Jersey Supreme Court temporarily suspended Friedman's license to practice law, Calo said. In April, Friedman agreed to the disbarment, which was finalized on May 23.
Friedman continued to practice law and got benefits after being disbarred, Calo said.
Friedman is scheduled to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack Feb. 6.
