The Disciplinary Board is an independent agency under the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction, consisting of thirteen members: eleven attorneys and two non-lawyers from across the Commonwealth. Funded by annual assessments paid by attorneys licensed to practice in the Commonwealth, it assists the Supreme Court in all matters involving attorney licensing and discipline in Pennsylvania.

“I am honored to be reappointed to a second term with the Disciplinary Board as we work to uphold the integrity of the profession,” said Rosenberg. “Serving in this role continues to be intellectually challenging, and I appreciate the opportunity to contribute.”

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 volunteers on several legal and community boards, including serving as Vice President of the Board of Trustees of the Library Company of Philadelphia and Chairman of the Board of Visitors at Pennsylvania State University’s Richards Center for Civil War Studies. He also is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and previously served on the Board of Directors for the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association for more than 10 years.

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.
