yeager for judge

Justice for All

Prior to running for judge on the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, I’ve spent my life striving to achieve justice for all.  I’ve been an advocate for the voiceless, the underdog, and the powerless, and have not been afraid to oppose powerful special interests. For too many of our neighbors, our national promise of “justice for all” remains a dream.  I’m running for judge to help make that dream a reality.

I grew up in Upper Bucks County, which in many ways was an idyllic, wonderful home, and I am thankful for all I was fortunate to experience.  But it also taught me some tougher lessons.  As the only Jewish kid in my class and one of only a few in the community, I had classmates and neighbors who did hurtful things, and I learned at an early age what it meant to feel like an outsider.  I grew up seeing how implicit bias impacted us, how girls were treated differently than boys, how African American kids were treated differently, how kids who grew up in poverty were treated differently, how LGBT kids were treated differently. How I was treated differently. I learned about the differences between our society’s promises and society’s reality. I became a staunch defender of our constitutional rights and an advocate for liberty, freedom, and equality for all.

As a lawyer, I have never shied away from taking on powerful interests. I have stood up for workers’ rights, women facing sexual harassment and discrimination, and communities fighting for clean air, pure water and a healthy environment.  I’ve won landmark victories and fought to secure justice for thousands.

As a judge, I’ll never forget what it feels like to be an outsider. Every person deserves a fair hearing in our courts. Every person deserves a judge who will listen, who will be truly open-minded and even-handed.

I’m dedicated to making justice for all a reality. I would be honored if you would join me in this cause.
