Lincoln lawyer charged with theft from clients

June 4, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln attorney has been accused of keeping $27,500 in insurance checks intended for two clients.

Lancaster County Court records say 43-year-old Craig Hoffman is charged with two felony counts of theft. The records don’t list the name of a lawyer who could comment for him. Hoffman’s next court hearing is scheduled for June 24.

Officer Luke Bonkiewicz says two Lincoln residents say Hoffman hadn’t turned over settlement payments to them from insurance companies. Both dated to 2017.
