Featured Candidate: Jill Beck for Pennsylvania Superior Court Judge
Attorney Jill Beck has dedicated her career to ensuring that all Pennsylvanians have access to justice. Jill knew from a young age that she wanted to be an advocate for the underserved. After graduating at the top of her class from Duquesne University School of Law, Jill chose to work for the nonprofit KidsVoice, where she represented abused and neglected children, ensuring that not only their legal rights were protected, but that their basic human needs were met – food, clothing, and a safe and loving family. Jill represented up to 225 children at a given time before magisterial district judges, the Court of Common Pleas, and the Pennsylvania Superior Court. She spent the next 10 years in public service as a law clerk under the Honorable Christine Donohue on the Superior Court and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. In 2019 Jill became a civil litigator at Blank Rome, a law firm she selected because of its commitment to providing free legal services to those who cannot afford them. There, Jill continued helping the underserved including representing victims of domestic violence and helping low-income criminal defendants to secure the same constitutional protections as those with means. Jill knows firsthand that justice is served only when every person – regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or income – has fair and equal access to the courts. She is running for the Pennsylvania Superior Court to ensure that justice in Pennsylvania truly is for ALL. Visit https://www.jillbeck.com to read more about Jill Beck for Superior Court.
