El Paso attorney suspended for 6 months

An attorney from El Paso was recently suspended for six months for contempt, according to an order signed on May 14.

Attorney Stuart Leeds’ suspension became effective immediately after a judge revoked his license from a six-month probation. The initial probation came when Leeds was found to have made false claims to the court about what he had filed for his client facing felony charges in a 2011 trial.

Leeds now has to file an affidavit by June 14 proving that he notified all his clients and opposing counsel of his suspension and has given all clients their money and property back in accordance with the order.
