Washington County receives a new family law judge for family law for 2012. Judge Gary Gilman recently won election to the Washington County, PA Court of Common Pleas. Judge Gilman replaces BOTH of the previous Family Law judges:: Judge DiSalle & Judge Melograne. Divorce, custody, support and PFA cases were previoulsy assigned to one of those two judges, based on alphabetization. Judge Gilman begins his duties in January 2012.
Upon election, Judge Gilman said: "I'm looking forward to getting started and working, I'm excited about the positon and duties that I'll have." A brief biographical capsule on Judge Gilman will follow in the next blog post.
