Stuart Leviton is a graduate of The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania (BS, Economics), an honors graduate of the University of Texas at Austin School of Law (JD), and a graduate of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (MS, Addiction Counseling). He is a long-time member of the California Bar. He has practiced in business advice and counsel and civil litigation for nearly 25 years.

He has over 40 years of business experience, starting in his formative years in his family’s men’s clothing store, and proceeding thereafter as a union member, employee, consultant, attorney, business advisor, and small business owner. In addition to his professional activities, he sits on the Boards of the Union for Reform Judaism, the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life, and the Coachella Valley Housing Coalition. Formerly, he was Vice-Chair of the California Fair Employment and Housing Commission, Chair of the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation, and a lecturer in Business Law and Ethics at the American Jewish University.

His ultimate takeaway from his extensive professional and service experience: Stop asking for advice. Instead, focus on understanding the potential consequences of the choices one makes. Ask the right questions, get good answers, and carefully weigh and understand the possible outcomes.
