Attorney E.J. Leizerman of Toledo – Anatomy of a dishonest attorney
E.J. Leizerman was unfortunately admitted to the Ohio Bar on 4/30/76. Subsequently he obtained a license to practice in Michigan and Tennessee.
The facts below clearly demonstrate that attorney E.J. Leizerman has dedicated his legal career to the “total avoidance of propriety.” Put simply, E.J. Leizerman is an ethical dwarf.
Amongst his peers in the Toledo area, attorney E.J. Leizerman is considered one of the most corrupt and dishonest attorney to have ever practiced in Northwest Ohio. In fact, he is commonly referred to as “Mr. Sleizerman” (my sincerest apologies to sleazy attorneys).
Over the past over twenty years (ca. 1987-2009), this ol’ Dawg has spent an inordinate amount of time investigating misconduct of attorneys, judges and various public officials. During that time, I have received thousands upon thousands of emails, telephone calls and/or letters from every state and numerous foreign countries detailing the misconduct of attorneys, etc.
With that said, I can safely say that the breadth of the egregious misconduct that attorney E.J. Leizerman has cheerfully engaged in over the years to unjustly enrich himself is mind-boggling to say the least. Each and every fact set forth below has been documented by a review of public records; interviews with reliable sources and/or obtained from persons who actually witnessed Mr. Leizerman’s misconduct.
The following facts, all of which are not in dispute, relate to the egregious misconduct engaged in by attorney E.J. Leizerman over the past twenty or so years.
Fraud involving Federal District Judge from Nashville
In this matter, E.J. Leizerman filed a motion to cancel a trial date with retired Judge Robert Wilson of Bryan, Ohio by falsely claiming that had been previously scheduled by Judge Aleta Trauger of the Federal District Court in Nashville.
When Judge Trauger was provided with a copy of E.J. Leizerman’s fabricated/false motion, she provided a written letter stating that no such trial had been scheduled. Judge Trauger went on to state that she was scheduled to be on vacation on the date E.J. Leizerman falsely stated she had scheduled a trial.
Attorney E.J. Leizerman’s involvement in Michigan No-Fault matter
The following facts deal with attorney E.J. Leizerman’s involvement in a Michigan No-Fault matter involving a lady that took place in Jan. 1987. Leizerman was employed to defend against attorney David R. Pheils’ lawsuit wherein he claimed he was entitled to 30% of all medical bills paid by Nationwide for the balance of this woman’s life. Pheils made this sham claim, even though under Michigan law Nationwide was required to pay all medical bills and in fact did so voluntarily.
Attorney E.J. Leizerman’s false testimony in Delaware Common Pleas Court
Several months after an ethics complaint was filed against E.J. Leizerman in early 1992, attorney Dale Crandall commenced a legal action in Delaware Common Pleas Court against Ok Sun’s daughter. Now retired Judge Henry Shaw, Jr. presided over this matter. The following then took place:
Due to some procedural errors, the conviction was subsequently reversed by Judge Krueger; however, the fact that E.J. Leizerman knowingly perjured himself didn’t change.
I could go on with many, many more provable examples of the egregious misconduct that E.J. Leizerman has cheerfully engaged in over the years to unjustly enrich himself.
After reviewing thousands of cases of attorney misconduct (ca. 1982-2009) I can safely say that Mr. E.J. Leizerman is one of the most dishonest attorneys to have ever practiced law. It is indeed unfortunate that the powers-to-be in Ohio have not displayed the necessary courage to disbar Leizerman when they possessed irrefutable evidence of his misdeeds in the mid-nineties.
