David S. Senoff has been named a member of the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, effective April 1, 2020.
A founding member of First Law Strategy Group, LLC, Senoff has focused his 27-year career on class-action lawsuits in important public policy fights. As one of the lead attorneys involved in seeking justice for the victims of the “Kids-for-Cash” cases, and having been instrumental in the creation of the Pennsylvania law regarding the state’s Wage Law, he has taken on some of the toughest public policy fights in Pennsylvania.
As a Judge pro tem in the Philadelphia County Courts of Common Pleas, Senoff also mediates disputes in an effort to fairly resolve cases for all parties prior to trial.
Prior to this appointment, he served for 12 years as a Hearing Committee Member for the Disciplinary Board and for 3 years as a member on the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s Civil Rules Committee.
He has won accolades for his work on behalf of victims of corporate and government negligence and malfeasance – routinely being named as a Pennsylvania “Super Lawyer” every year for the last decade, and as a “Best Lawyer in America” annually since 2013.
Prior to the founding of his firm, Senoff was highly involved with the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers’ Association, having served on its Board of Directors as well as serving as the communications coordinator and education coordinator for the Association. He is also currently a member of the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania Association, where he currently serves on the Association’s Amicus Curiae Committee. He previously served as the Co-Chair of the Association’s Insurance Bad Faith Law Section. Senoff is also currently a member of the Insurance Bad Faith Trial Lawyers Association and the Class Action Trial Lawyers Association.
The Disciplinary Board was created by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to review conduct and assure compliance by all attorneys to the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct. The Board assists the Supreme Court in the licensing and discipline of attorneys in Pennsylvania. Its mission is to protect the general public, maintain a high standard of integrity in the legal profession, and safeguard the reputation of the courts of Pennsylvania.
Disciplinary Board members, which include 10 lawyers and two non-lawyers from across the Commonwealth, meet regularly to decide cases, policies, and board administrative matters. All members of the Disciplinary Board serve as unpaid volunteers.
