Thank you for all your support!

To all of my friends and supporters who circulated petitions in the cold of February 2017, walked door to door with me through the rain in the Spring and in the heat of the Summer, who phone banked, worked tables at events, made phone calls, dropped literature, stood at polls because you shared my beliefs that justice should be fair and impartial and accessible to everyone regardless of their station in life, I say thank you!

To the 22,619 voters who cast their ballots for me on November 7, 2017, I say thank you!

I have had the opportunity given to only a few to serve the people of Dauphin County as Judge. I believe I used that opportunity to its fullest to improve the lives of many people facing the pain of domestic abuse, the anguish of custody disputes, the hard decision to seek guardianship of an elderly parent of disabled adult child, and many other civil and criminal issues. It has been an experience that has changed my life as well through meeting so many wonderful people who serve on the court to support the judges and keep the legal system of the county working seamlessly. To all of them, I say thank you.

I will be repurposing my life as I prepare to transition off the bench on January 1, 2018, and start a new chapter. I will be rejoining the firm I founded almost 40 years ago.

The Committee to Elect Judge Serratelli will close it’s books by December 31, 2017. You have all been so generous in your financial support and I am so very grateful. We are facing a deficit of approximately $70,000. Any further contribution you might be able to donate in the next month would be very much appreciated.

Reception honoring Judge Dwayne Woodruff & Judge Lori Serratelli

Please join us to hear the compelling stories of Judge Dwayne Woodruff, a former Pittsburgh Steeler who worked his way through law school as a football player to go on to be elected Judge on the Allegheny Court of Common Pleas, Family Division.  He is now vying for a position on the Pa Supreme Court.  Judge Lori Serratelli was one of the first female attorneys in Harrisburg to open and grow her own law practice to a respected, mid-sized multi-practice law firm.  Her 38 years practicing family law, civil law and Orphans court matters, and her involvement in the community earned her an appointment on the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas in June 2016 for which she is now running for election.

Wedding Anniversary and Father’s Day

Thirty-nine years ago today, on June 18, 1978, I married Steve Schiffman. It was also Father’s Day. My father was the most loving, optimistic, hardworking and fun-loving man I could hope to be blessed with as my parent. He valued education, above all, encouraging me to pursue my dream of being an attorney. I met Steve in law school and we have had a wonderful partnership in law and marriage. He has been a loving, caring, husband, and father to our two sons. He is my best friend. This day reminds me how doubly blessed I have been.
