G. Denmead LeViness, a Baltimore attorney known for television ads in which he proclaimed himself an honest lawyer, died Saturday at Sinai Hospital after collapsing at his Roland Park home. He was 57.
An autopsy is being done to determine the cause of death.
Services for Mr. LeViness will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. David's Episcopal Church, 4700 Roland Ave.
At the close of his television commercials, which aired on local stations for the past four years, an off-camera voice asked, "What kind of a lawyer are you, Denny LeViness?"
"Honest," answered Mr. LeViness, from his seat behind a desk.
A Baltimore native, he graduated from the Gilman School in 1953 and attended Johns Hopkins University and the University of Baltimore. He received a law degree from the University of Baltimore Law School.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara LeViness; a sister, Elizabeth L. Nottingham of South Orange, N.J.; and two nephews.
His mother, Hildegarde Denmead LeViness, died Jan. 13. His father, Charles T. LeViness III, a reporter for The Sun in the mid-1920s, died in 1974.
