Early Life and Education
Steve Leitner has been involved in several controversial legal cases, most notably when he secretly inserted language in an agreement to allow one of his clients to avoid having their wages garnished; as a result, the judge in that matter wrote that Leitner had violated ethical rules.
In another instance, he refused to disclose a potential conflict of interest and repeatedly represented one client without notifying any third parties, which resulted in clients filing suit alleging breach of trust and ethics violations.
James was also accused of misusing his position as board member of the National Arts Club to conduct personal business with one of its members and of calling one former program director a limp wristed f*-$?t. In that matter, settlement resolved self-dealing claims as well as breaches of fiduciary duty claims.
