Dieter to run for district magistrate
Denise Dieter announced Thursday that she will be running for the position of Magisterial District Judge for District Court 29-3-01 in Jersey Shore, the office currently held by District Judge Jerry Lepley, who will be retiring this year.
Since 1993, Dieter has represented individuals, corporations, and municipalities in state and federal courts and before state and federal agencies in 28 counties, a news release from her campaign said. Dieter was retained out of law school to join growing general practice law firm, The Drier & Dieter Law Office, with concentration in municipal, estate, civil law and social security/disability law and litigation. The news release said she contributed to doubling of business within 10 years of joining.
Dieter was appointed as the chief compliance officer for the Republican Party of Pennsylvania in 2019. She was appointed by U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, as the sole attorney from the region to serve on a 2011 Judiciary Review Committee to make recommendations for U.S. Presidential appointment of two federal judges. She was appointed in 2016 as a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Commission Investigative Panel.
The news release said she has a 100-percent success rate in federal court appeals representing citizens with social security and disability benefit claims.
She is also an active solicitor who routinely meets with municipality representatives and community members to instruct on legal issues such as bidding, open records, prevailing wage and other municipal laws.
