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.
