A disbarred Long Island attorney who allegedly told a client that a state judge had signed off on a $24,000 settlement has been charged with possessing a forged document, Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen M. Rice announced Friday. In January 2006, Bryan Holzberg, 53, of Port Washington, allegedly gave a client a document indicating his business dispute had settled.
The document was purportedly signed by Nassau Supreme Court Justice Anthony L. Parga. In fact, no such case was assigned to Parga, and the judge had never signed any order, Rice said.
