Born in Brooklyn, New York, Steven Meiner was raised to believe in public service and the importance of community. His father, Sheldon Meiner, dedicated his career to public service as a U.S. Internal Revenue Service agent for almost 40 years, and his mother, Dorothy Weiss, likewise dedicated her career to public service as a public school teacher and guidance counselor. Steven’s parents were role models of the importance of public service.
Steven followed in his parents footsteps and has dedicated most of his 23 year professional career as an attorney to public service fighting against fraud. Since 2007, when he moved to Miami Beach, Steven has served as a civil law enforcement attorney with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Prior to the SEC, Steven practiced law in New York City handling complex financial litigation cases for prestigious international law firms Dewey Ballantine and Mayer Brown.
Steven has been devoted to helping his community and was honored as Man of the Year by a local civic organization in 2012. Steven was also appointed to serve on a City of Miami Beach advisory panel and is also active with a number of local charitable organizations.
Steven has been married to his wife Shanyn for 18 years and they are proud parents of their two young children, Matisyahu and Michal.
Steven earned his J.D. Cum Laude from Brooklyn Law School, and graduated Summa Cum Laude with his B.A. from Brooklyn College with Phi Beta Kappa honors.
