Eddie Leitman


In Memoriam

Leitman, Siegal, Payne & Campbell mourns the loss of our dear friend and founding partner, Eddie Leitman, who passed away in October 2012. For over a span if nearly a half century, together with Eddie, we have worked and played, laughed and cried, planned, and plotted, and traveled the many roads and pathways of life. We will miss his smile and infectious laugh.
