A Final Pre-Election Message from Dara
Well, here we are, Election Day-eve. It feels like I have been working toward tomorrow forever. In truth, it has been about a year. A year of putting myself out there..which does not come natural..at countless events, a few parades, and most significantly through a tremendous amount of meeting neighbors via door knocking. It really has been a meaningful year for me, but it begs the question..why did I do all this? The reason is that I believe in my heart I am the right person for this job-Magisterial District Judge. I have the education and experience as a seasoned attorney who has spent the bulk of my career working in the judiciary. I know the importance of making sure the law is applied fairly to all people, no matter what. Moreover, I am a parent of four raising our family here, which gives me a deep connection with and everlasting concern for our community. Tomorrow is the day at last-please take the time to vote! Thank you so very much.
Experienced and Dedicated
As a lawyer and a mom with a desire to serve my community, I feel that the best use of my experience lies in serving as District Justice. I am uniquely qualified due to my legal experience in family, criminal and civil legal matters. Over the course of working in the judiciary, I have found that what people need most when encountering our judicial system is someone who will hear them out in an unbiased way and maintain a level playing field with integrity. My main reason for running is to ensure that the law is applied fairly to all with compassion and dignity, with an eye towards protecting our families and children
As an attorney for over 20 years, I started my career in private practice working in estates and trusts, and appearing in Orphan’s Court. I then went on to spend approximately 15 years working in the Superior and Supreme Courts of Pennsylvania. I also had the honor of serving on the Hearing Committee of the Disciplinary Board of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, where I operated in a judicial capacity to review, deliberate, and recommend discipline for attorneys charged with ethical violations.
I have spent my adult life as a resident of Lafayette Hill, where my husband Dave and I are raising our four children in the Colonial School District. My passion lies in service, and my work in the community has been as a former Committeeperson, as the Vice President of the William Jeanes Memorial Library and Nicolas and Athena Karabots Center for Learning, and as a formerly appointed member of the Montgomery County Commission on Women and Families.
