PHOENIX – Oct. 1, 2018 - The Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Arizona Supreme Court has issued an order imposing reciprocal discipline for Ros Saciuk of Illinois. The action is a result of his one-year suspension from the practice of law in Illinois.
Saciuk converted $23,000 in client and third-party funds while handling two personal injury cases, which led to his suspension.
The Order of Suspension was entered on May 18, 2016 by the Supreme Court of Illinois. The Presiding Disciplinary Judge in Arizona entered an Order of Suspension on Sept. 14, 2018.
Ros Saciuk’s one-year suspension from the State Bar of Arizona was effective Sept. 14, 2018. He is currently active and authorized to practice law in Illinois.
Pursuant to Rule 57(b) of the Arizona Supreme Court, the Presiding Disciplinary Judge generally imposes identical or substantially similar discipline on a lawyer disciplined in another jurisdiction. Saciuk's suspension in Illinois is the basis for the order suspending him in Arizona.
