A Garfield attorney swiped $90,000 from two clients in real estate deals while he suspended from practicing law, said authorities who arrested him.

Alfred Ramos, 38, “received the funds into his attorney’s trust account and then, instead of forwarding them to his clients, used them for his own purposes,” Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.

Ramos was under suspension at the time, under a July 3, 2018 order of the New Jersey Supreme Court, Calo said.

He’s scheduled for a Feb. 13 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court on two counts of misapplication of entrusted funds and a single count of unauthorized practice of law, the prosecutor said.
