Court documents filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office say Salt Lake City-based real estate lawyer Calvin Curtis is being accused of defrauding his clients between January 2008 and July 2021.

In one instance, Curtis allegedly sold real estate to a client for roughly $9.2 million. However, the client only got $7.5 million and Curtis pocketed $1.7 million for himself. 

On at least three other occasions, Curtis created fake statements and sent them to a court-appointed conservator for one of his clients. The statements provided “false accounting for her trust,” according to court documents, when in reality, Curtis was transferring that money into either his law firm’s account or his personal account.
