March 29th, 2018 Comments off

Attorney Robert Kevin Lavelle has been hired as the new law clerk for Potter County President Judge Stephen Minor (left), succeeding Matthew Metzger, who moved from the area. A Scranton native, Lavelle earned a political science degree from Bloomsburg University and a law degree from Widener University Commonwealth Law School. As law clerk, he assists Judge Minor in research and in the preparation of opinions and orders. Lavelle is also responsible for maintenance of the law library at the courthouse, which is available to the court staff and area lawyers. A separate responsibility of the law clerk in Potter County is the review and processing of no-fault divorce decrees. Hundreds of divorce cases are filed in Potter County by out-of-county law firms, due to the county’s lower fee structure. (Photo courtesy of Endeavor News)
