Judge King began her career protecting the most vulnerable as an assistant district attorney in the Lancaster County district attorney’s office where she supervised the child abuse unit — an office where the worst of the human condition was met with tough justice for offenders and hope for victims. She later led a county-wide initiative to combat elder abuse, including financial exploitation schemes.
Judge King has served as supervisor and deputy district attorney of the child abuse and elder abuse units for the Office of the District Attorney in Lancaster and Chester counties. She has successfully prosecuted homicides, sexual and physical assaults, and increasingly complex schemes to defraud seniors. In recognition of Judge King’s accomplishments, she was the only Pennsylvania prosecutor to receive the 2018 Blue Ribbon Champion for Safe Kids Award from the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance, the state leader in child protection. Judge King clerked for Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Thomas Saylor where she handled civil and criminal matters on appeal. She is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
Her chambers are in Montgomery County.
