Florida attorney Ashley Morin, 28, has been accused of helping a mother steal her son's home using forged documents amid a dramatic family dispute.

A Florida attorney has been accused of helping a mother try to steal her son’s home using forged documents amid a dramatic family dispute.

Ashley Morin, 28, was arrested Monday after Ryan Shrouder claimed he had helped her mother Suzanne Corcoran, who has also been charged in the alleged fraud.

He told police Morin managed to steal his signature seal before his mother used it to sign a deed transferring her share of the $540,000 house to her, before recording the document.

Shrouder is a Cooper city commissioner and previously employed Morin, according to court documents.

“The signature seal on the deed is identical to the seal on his signature, demonstrating that Corcoran may have taken or replicated it from another document,” the probable cause affidavit states.

Florida attorney Ashley Morin, 28, has been accused of helping a mother steal her son’s home using forged documents amid a dramatic family dispute.

“Ryan emphasized that he never uses his signature seal for essential documents such as wills, powers of attorney or deeds.”

Morin was heard telling his mother on the phone that Shrouder has two stamps and he didn’t realize one was missing, a witness told police.

The attorney picked up Corcoran and took her to several post offices attempting to notarize the deed, eventually succeeding at a UPS, according to the filing.

He is then said to have presented an original copy of the deed to local government staff so it could be recorded.

Shrouder told Broward County Sheriff’s Detective Robert Feick that he had been supporting his mother financially for the past ten years, but that their relationship had become “tumultuous.”

He claimed that his mother could sometimes experience “severe instability” leading to “self-destructive” behaviors that had recently led him to revoke the use of her credit cards and repossess a vehicle he had lent her.

“Since the day he took these actions, Ryan claims that Corcoran’s erratic behavior has increased,” the documents state.

He accused his mother of making up lies about him and his wife Samantha, a doctor who had just opened her own telemedicine clinic, were using Ozempic.

The situation came to a head in May of last year, when Shrouder was on vacation in Spain.

The trip was to coincide with Morin’s last day in his office, which is when, he claimed, she would have had the opportunity to steal his stamp.

Text messages included in court documents show Shrouder confronting his mother about how the deed was signed in his name and her calling him a “desperate little boy” and accusing him of being on “bad drugs.”

“It’s unfortunate the extent to which his self-destructive behavior has become so self-destructive,” Shrouder responded.

“You’re obviously not okay and I wish you the best of luck. I’m going to let the right professionals sort out this mess.”

Corcoran’s Facebook page lists her as a former Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy who studied criminal justice in college.

He told police that Morin managed to steal his signature seal and used it to sign a deed that transferred his share of this $540,000 house to Corcoran, before recording the document.

She and Morin have been charged with first-degree grand larceny, filing false documents against property and criminal use of personally identifiable information. Corcoran has pleaded not guilty.

Morin also denied taking the seal to Feick and declined to ask further questions after being asked if he had brought Corcoran.

The Florida Bar’s website states that she works at Shendell & Pollock in Boca Raton, however no trace of her can now be found on their website.

Shrouder is also suing the notary public who authenticated the deed, according to court documents.

He said he is “disheartened and hurt by this entire situation” and directed further investigation to the Broward State Attorney.
