Judge Giordano’s parents came to the United States in the 1950s to seek the American dream. Emil’s parents met in night school learning English. His mother worked in a sewing machine factory and his dad worked in a shoe factory.
When Emil was a young boy, he and his family moved to Pennsylvania where they opened a pizza business. Emil worked at the family pizza shop every day after school and on weekends — something he continued to do through college and law school.
As a Northampton Court of Common Pleas Judge, Emil Giordano has presided over innumerable criminal, civil, domestic and commercial matters following a litigation career which honed his understanding and capability in those same areas of the law.
Under his direction as Administrative Judge of the Orphans’ Court Division, Northampton County became the first county in Pennsylvania to require nationally recognized certification for all court-appointed attorney guardians.
Judge Giordano has presided over 80 jury trials following a career as a seasoned litigator who tried cases to over 20 juries in both federal and state courts.
In his campaign for Superior Court, Judge Giordano has received the endorsement of law enforcement organizations across our state:
- Pennsylvania State Troopers
- Fraternal Order of Police Pennsylvania State Lodge
- Fraternal Order of Police, Bethlehem Star Lodge 20
- Le-Hampton Lodge 35 FOP
- City of Scranton FOP E.B. Jermyn Lodge #2
Judge Giordano recently recorded a short video message while visiting PA GOP Headquarters in Harrisburg. I encourage you to watch and share this video with friends and family before Election Day.
On the campaign trail, I’ve seen the Judge’s heart for people and his steadfast commitment to our nation’s founding principles.
Please join me on Tuesday, November 3rd to vote for Judge Emil Giordano for Superior Court.
As the PA GOP’s Judicial Director, I’ve had the opportunity to travel across Pennsylvania with our five statewide judicial candidates, and with five weeks to go before Election Day, I thought I’d share why I believe they’d make terrific jurists on our statewide courts.
I’d like to begin with Paul Lalley, our Party’s nominee for the open seat on the Commonwealth Court.
A native of Montgomery County, Paul grew up knowing he wanted to make a difference. That’s why Paul decided to pursue a career in the law.
After graduating from La Salle College High School in 1989, Paul attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 1993. Paul went on to obtain his law degree from the Dickinson School of Law in 1996.
Paul focuses his practice on labor and employment issues for municipal and public school clients as an attorney with Campbell Durrant Beatty Palombo & Miller, P.C. in Pittsburgh.
One of his proudest achievements was when Allegheny County taxpayers were granted a one-year delay in the implementation of new property tax assessments after Paul persuaded the trial court that taxpayers needed time to challenge their assessments.
In recommending his candidacy for the Commonwealth Court, the Pennsylvania Bar Association noted that Paul’s “writing skills are held in high regard, particularly his ability to clearly explain complex legal issues.”
