The Disciplinary Board is an independent agency funded by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and consists of 13 members, of whom 11 are attorneys and two are non-lawyers, from across the state. The Board assists the Supreme Court in carrying out its exclusive jurisdiction over the licensing and discipline of attorneys in Pennsylvania. The members meet regularly to decide cases, policies and board administrative matters.

Previously serving on the Disciplinary Board’s Hearing Committee, Rosenberg is excited and grateful to have the opportunity to participate on the Disciplinary Board as a Board Member. "It will be intellectually challenging and provide me the opportunity to serve," says Rosenberg.

Spending most of his professional career representing clients who have often sustained life-changing injuries, due to harmful products, drugs, or insufficient medical care, Rosenberg has successfully gained compensation for many of those who have been wrongfully injured.

Rosenberg’s selection by his peers as a Philadelphia Super Lawyer, every year since 2004, reflects his position in the top five percent of practicing attorneys in Pennsylvania. He currently serves on several legal and community boards, including the Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association; the Board of Trustees of the Library Company of Philadelphia; and the Board of Visitors at Pennsylvania State University’s Richards Center for Civil War Studies. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Rosenberg graduated cum laude and Order of the Coif from Villanova University School of Law, where he was also a member of the Law Review. He became an Assistant District Attorney in 1974 and rose to the rank of Chief of the Special Investigations Unit. Rosenberg also taught trial practice as an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Law at Widener University School of Law.
