Mark Steinberg Rejoins City Attorney Delgadillo as Part-Time Adviser
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Attorney Mark Steinberg, who led City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo’s transition team nearly two years ago, was named yesterday to be a Delgadillo senior adviser.
Steinberg currently is serving as special counsel for law and policy at the Screen Actors Guild. He formerly was a partner at O’Melveny & Myers.
His role in Delgadillo’s office will be to advise on policy issues, including the LAPD consent decree and risk management.
“Mark brings with him a wealth of experience in matters that lie at the core of our mission,” Delgadillo said in a written statement.
Steinberg served on Bill Clinton’s presidential transition team in 1992, a year after serving as deputy general counsel to the Christopher Commission investigating the Los Angeles Police Department.
On Clinton’s team, Steinberg worked with the Justice Department, preparing briefing papers to bring the attorney general-designate up to speed. He served on the Zoe Baird confirmation team, then the Janet Reno confirmation team when Baird’s nomination fell through.
He served in 1997 as the State Department’s special representative on missing and detained persons in the former Yugoslavia. He was appointed associate deputy attorney general in 1994 and became the first director of the Executive Office for National Security.
He is a graduate of Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., and Northwestern University School of Law. He has been a member of the State Bar of California since 1972.
Steinberg’s position will be part-time, paying $56,000 a year.
Steinberg is married to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marjorie Steinberg.
