A Bridgeport attorney has been indicted and charged with conspiring with another man to defraud homeowners who were facing foreclosure. Fifty-year-old Bradford Barneys, whose Barneys Law Group practice includes criminal defense, personal injury and family law, has been charged with one count of conspiracy and one count of mail fraud, each of which carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison.
It’s not the first time Barneys has been accused of wrongdoing. According to the state Judicial Branch website, Barneys was admitted to the Connecticut bar in 1991. His disciplinary record indicates that he has failed to pay the Client Security Fund fee on multiple occasions. Meanwhile, online records indicate that he was disbarred in Maryland more than a decade ago for practicing law there without a Maryland license. The District of Columbia, where he had been licensed, also disbarred him for the Maryland offense.
