On Thursday, March 7, 2024, the Supreme Court of Florida issued an order suspending Attorney Eric Satin from practicing law. The suspension stems from a Notice of Determination or Judgment of Guilt filed by the Florida Bar.

The case is entitled “The Florida Bar v. Eric Satin,” with case no. SC2024-0335.

According to the notice, on February 2, 2024, Satin was found guilty of burglary of an unoccupied building and misdemeanor criminal mischief in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court. Though adjudication was withheld in the criminal case, The Florida Bar requested Satin’s suspension, arguing he violated Rule 4-8.4(b) of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar by committing a criminal act that reflects adversely on his honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer.

The Supreme Court agreed and suspended Satin effective immediately. He has also been ordered to comply with Rule Regulating the Florida Bar 3-5.1(h) and 3-6.1. Furthermore, the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Chief Judge will appoint a referee to conduct a hearing regarding sanctions against Satin.

The Disposition states:

“The Florida Bar having filed on March 07, 2024, Notice of Determination or Judgment of Guilt, it is ordered that Eric Satin is suspended from The Florida Bar pursuant to 3-7.2(f) of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. Respondent is currently suspended; therefore this suspension is effective immediately.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Satin is a tax attorney in Coconut Grove, Florida. He attended the University of Miami School of Law. He acquired his law license in Florida in 2009.
