Focus: Attorney Professional Misconduct

Attorney Kevin R. Rosin’s Wisconsin law license has been suspended for six months following a stipulation between the Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) and Rosin. This suspension will run consecutively to his previous one-year suspension, which ended on May 25, 2024. Rosin admitted to professional misconduct, including dishonesty and breaching fiduciary duties to two law firms by simultaneously working for both without informing either and misrepresenting his employment status.

Rosin’s misconduct began while he was employed at Firm 1 and secretly accepted a job at Firm 2, violating Firm 1’s policy against outside employment. He continued drawing salaries from both firms without disclosing his dual employment, thereby failing to meet his contractual obligations at Firm 1 and causing the firm financial damages.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court approved the stipulation, noting Rosin’s prior similar misconduct and emphasizing the necessity of honest professional conduct. No restitution was ordered due to a prior civil judgment requiring Rosin to repay Firm 1. The suspension aims to reinforce ethical standards and restore public confidence in the legal profession.
