Former Connecticut Lawyer Elizabeth Zembko Arrested For Shoplifting and Burglary

250px-Hinged_Handcuffs_Rear_Back_To_BackFormer Connecticut lawyer Elizabeth Zembko, 48, achieved notoriety a few years ago when she was convicted of stealing half a million dollars from her former law firm and elderly clients to pay for shopping sprees. It appears that the shopping bug is not quite out of her system. After serving 15 months, she was re-arrested for shoplifting and burglary in two different incidents.

On May 4, Zembko allegedly stole a $1,395 Michael Kors handbag from Nordstrom store. Police say that they found two other items in her car that were also shoplifted.

She was arrested again in Mid-May after being accused of third-degree burglary and fifth-degree larceny. Because Zembko has asked friend for any extra money and jewelry that she did not need, the friend was immediately suspicious when $300 went missing from her handbag. A house painter witnessed Zembko coming out of the garage counting the money.

Even before these arrests, Zembko was in violation of her probation for failure to pay her law firm restitution.

She is only the latest in a spree of attorneys caught using the five-fingered discount, here.

  1. Greetings, I do believe your site might be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, excellent website!

  2. Above, should be ‘Initially’ and ‘awkward. ‘

    Had to answer the phone and forgot I hadn’t spell-checked, sorry.

    I can assume you did not like my post of Mr. Hoenigs thoughts?


    I wish I had a ‘lotta kash’

    I didn’t think much of Mr. Hoenigs thoughts. Been there, done that. Inishialy I thought your intro: ‘Capitalist Pig J Hoenig…’ was your characterization of him based on his ideas. I was set to do a 1 line reply saying ‘yes, exactly.’ Wow, that would have been….. auckward. 🙂

    I always like you posting though, a sense of humor is a great virtue in my book and you have that in spades. 🙂

    I haven’t heard of birkin- merkin came to mind but it took Bron to just put it out there, what’s not to love 🙂 Someone on this blog used merkin as an entirely correct verb lately- brilliant!

    I’m making her buy me a house at the beach when she makes partner before 30 — she’ll graduate at 22 so I won’t have long to wait.
    anyway I need that beach house and it doesn’t have to be big, just waterfront so that i can look outside my window to see if the surf if up and not have to rely on internet surf reports
    and that 20 minute drive and the existential search for a parking space. There were thunderstorms here on the southern california coast all morning. the waves were all blown out and its supposed to be June which can mimic nuclear winter here most days but I was really looking forward to getting wet.

    I’ll buy the bag myself and you are right….the blue croc is mighty fine.
