Meet New ISBA President David Sosin, If You Can Keep Up with Him
Read the July 2019 Illinois Bar Journal and get to know new ISBA President David Sosin. Sosin, a partner of the Orland Park firm of Sosin, Arnold & Schoenbeck, practices real estate, land use, and zoning law. He also serves as attorney for the Village of Crestwood just east of Orland Park. He has a long history of bar leadership, including stints as president of the Southwest Suburban Bar Association and the Illinois Bar Foundation prior to entering the leadership track at the ISBA, where his wife, Janet, recently retired as director of bar services after more than 30 years of service.
Sosin sees many needles to move during the 2019-20 bar year. Included among his top priorities are: attorney wellness, law firm succession planning, bar association leadership, and health insurance for lawyers and firms.
“Throughout his long and successful career, David has been committed to improving the quality of the Illinois bar,” says Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Lloyd Karmeier, who has known David and Janet for many years. “The experience and insights he has gained as a practicing lawyer and as a leader of lawyers through his service to the ISBA make him particularly well-suited to assume the presidency of the organization. I am confident he will do an outstanding job.”
