How not to practice law: threaten others and tell them to kill themselves

I have not posted any entries in the ongoing "how not to practice law" series in a while, so here you go:

As reported (here) by Prof. Jonathan Turley:
A prominent real estate lawyer who once described himself in a column as “jungle street skills and a passion for justice” has been suspended for bizarre and abusive conduct. Adam Leitman Bailey told a tenant that he should commit suicide as a worthless human being and even declared “now you’re my bitch.”  The problem is that the tenant recorded the call.  
In a decision by the New York Appellate Division, Bailey was given a four-month suspension and told to get counseling.
