A Long Island attorney who was convicted over an adoption scam has now been convicted for attempting to get a $300,000 mortgage using fake documents and impersonating someone else. Attorney Kevin Cohen of Roslyn lived in the home owned by the trust arranged by his deceased parents. Though he was going to receive the property in 2012, Mr. Cohen impersonated the trustee and used forged documents to try obtaining a mortgage in 2008. He was arrested at the closing.

Mr. Cohen tried to obtain the mortgage before launching his adoption scheme, which resulted in the theft of $300,000 from more than a dozen families.
