Matt Menges announces his candidacy for Judge

York, PA -   Local Attorney Matt Menges is pleased to announce his bid for a seat on the York County Court of Common Pleas as a Republican.  He released the following statement:

“I am officially and formally announcing my candidacy for York County Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of the 19th Judicial District during the May 16th, 2017 Primary Election.  As a Dover Township Supervisor, I have proven track record of transparency in government and treating all citizens with dignity.  As a judge, I will continue my effort to ensure each person who comes before me gets treated fairly.” 

Menges has partnered with elected officials and law enforcement throughout south central Pennsylvania to provide free educational seminars on firearms law.  Through nearly 100 seminars in the last 5 years, Menges has reached thousands of people to help them understand their rights and responsibilities as a firearm owner, and more importantly how to safely interact with law enforcement.  “As a Northern York County Regional Police Commissioner I take my officers’ safety seriously.  The worst encounter I can imagine is a law abiding gun owner being injured or killed because a police officer thought his life was in danger.  That’s a big reason I volunteered for this educational outreach.”  Menges explained.        

As an attorney Menges practices in all areas over which a Common Pleas judge presides.  He has handled civil jury trials, criminal jury trials, including complex felony cases, protection from abuse, child support, divorce, mortgage foreclosure, tax assessment appeals, municipal law, firearms law, will contests and other estate litigation.  “I have sat with people in tears because their spouse just left them unexpectedly, people who have just lost loved ones, and people on the verge of losing their home.  Helping my clients work through the legal aspects of these difficult times and maintain perspective has given me great empathy for the struggles that sometimes happen in life,” Menges said.  “As a judge, it’s important to keep this compassion for every person coming into the courtroom and not just consider them another case on the docket.” 

Matt Menges started his professional as a police officer and security contractor for the Department of the Army.  Currently he is a shareholder at Trinity Law, a law firm headquartered in York with 4 offices in south central Pennsylvania, where he has worked since 2006.  In 2012 Menges took office as a Dover Township Supervisor, where he served as Chair in 2015 and 2016.  As Vice-Chair of the Northern York County Regional Police Department Board of Commissioners, his greatest privilege has been swearing in a new police officer.  He has volunteered as a Director and past President (2011-2015) of Typical Life Corporation since 2007.  From 2014 until recently, Menges was an elected State Committee member and York County Committee member for the Republican Party.  Central Penn Business Journal named Menges a 40 under 40 in 2014 and he was named a Top Attorney for 2016 in the Global Directory of Who’s Who.
