A sea of change in how civil cases are processed and litigated in Montgomery County is coming on January 1, 2016. The dramatic changes include new deadlines that will be imposed by the court in every case filed after the new year. How will these changes affect the way you handle your cases? What are the consequences if you miss the new deadlines? What will be the impact on your clients if you fail to adhere to the deadlines? As there is no phase-in period, you can’t risk not having a clear understanding of the rules and, perhaps more importantly, of the court’s expectations of you.

The panel will consist of attorneys and officials who are well-versed in the upcoming changes, including:

  • The Honorable Thomas M. DelRicci, Administrative Judge of the Civil Division of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas
  • Michael R. Kehs, Esquire, Court Administrator, Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas
  • Wendy G. Rothstein, Esquire, Fox Rothschild LLP
  • Paul C. Troy, Esquire, Kane, Pugh, Knoell, Troy & Kramer, LLP
