2021 Election Message
An Experienced lawyer with local roots.
My name is Eman Jarrah and I am running for Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas Judge. I hope to bring a unique perspective to the bench. My roots are local – I was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I am a first-generation American and the first of 3 children in my family to graduate from college. My parents instilled in me and my siblings the importance of effort, common sense, and integrity. I was taught to set goals and work hard to achieve those goals. I apply those standards daily in my work as a Deputy County Solicitor.
My approach is to fully commit to every case I handle – my clients deserve the effort of diligent research, preparedness in court, and effective communication. It is important to me that all parties be heard. A quality day is one where I assist in coming up with a creative solution to a challenging scenario.
It is my belief that a good judge embodies a strong understanding of legal principles combined with the temperament to remain level-headed, tactful, and unbiased. A judge’s decision may be unpopular, but ultimately, all parties should feel they benefited from a fair hearing. If elected to the bench, I pledge to epitomize these qualities for the service of my community.
