Local Experience Matters

jng-at-desk.PNGThank you for your support over the years. Due to the recent election of Attorney Gothie to the office of Judge of the York County Court of Common Pleas, he is closing his law practice and is no longer accepting new clients.

During the 2021 Municipal Election, Attorney Gothie set a record by receiving more votes (51,690) than any non-crossfiled candidate in the history of York County and the second-most of all time if crossfiled candidates are included.

That outcome was achieved through the grace of God as well as the efforts of countless supporters and advocates. Without the support of so many, it would have been impossible to run a successful countywide election in York County, which now contains over 450,000 souls and covers nearly 1,000 square miles of territory.

As a result, this office will formally close on December 1, 2021. The telephone number will be either disconnected or rerouted to another law office to ensure anyone seeking help can reach counsel timely.

Client files in storage will be retained through the periods established in the fee letters, generally for a period of three years. If you wish to inquire about a closed file, please email [email protected] with your question.

The custom and practice of this office has been to return all original papers and documents on file closure and storage and to keep copies only, and he retains no original documents or property of clients.

Most of the documents for most of the cases Attorney Gothie has worked on are scanned and can be sent to you by email. Please allow 2 - 4 weeks for responses, though most responses should be turned around more quickly.

Again, please email Attorney Gothie with questions or issues about prior cases at his email address:

[email protected]

Attorney Gothie is prohibited from practicing law or giving legal advice in any capacity after he is sworn in on January 3, 2022, even if you are a former client. You will need to retain new counsel and discuss matters with that lawyer.
