Rebecca Warren – Superior Court Candidate
Rebecca Warren was born and raised in a small coal town in Pennsylvania. After graduating with honors from Bloomsburg University, Rebecca was awarded a scholarship to The Dickinson School of Law, receiving her Juris Doctorate in 1991. Upon graduation, Rebecca joined a central Pennsylvania law firm, focusing on civil trial litigation in 26 counties, and achieving partnership status within one year.
In the late 90’s, Rebecca was asked to join the Columbia County District Attorney’s
Office where she authored the County’s first Child Abuse Protocol to minimize trauma to child victims. As Assistant District Attorney, Rebecca was primarily responsible for prosecuting all child abuse, sexual assault, and juvenile cases.
In 2002, Rebecca launched her own law firm in Danville, which became a profitable and respected multi-county enterprise. The firm focused on civil practice including business law, family law, estate planning and administration, real estate, and governmental solicitor positions.
After many years of success in private practice, Rebecca was approached to run for District Attorney of Montour County. Having lost her father and brother in a double homicide by vehicle, Rebecca felt that her calling was to provide a voice for victims and prosecute criminals. Rebecca waged a campaign that yielded a victory with 78% of the vote, thereby becoming the first woman to serve as a District Attorney in the 26th Judicial District. During her time as District Attorney, Rebecca was particularly passionate about protecting our elderly and children.
After taking a brief sabbatical following her tenure as District Attorney to engage in mission work, Rebecca accepted a partnership position with Philadelphia firm Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP where she served in the litigation, election law, white collar crime and appellate sections. Presently she is corporate counsel for the largest private distributor of dental supplies in the United States.
Throughout Rebecca’s 27-year legal career, Rebecca has appeared in front of state, federal and county courts on thousands of cases. She has successfully argued in front of the Commonwealth and Superior Courts on many occasions. Most recently, she was part of the legal team representing the Republican Party of Pennsylvania and President-Elect Trump in the various election issues, contests, and recount challenges filed throughout Pennsylvania and in the Federal Courts, and representing Republican voters in the Pennsylvania redistricting case that was appealed all the way to the US Supreme Court.
Rebecca has actively contributed to many worthwhile causes and charities, including the Danville Child Development Center, Bloomsburg Public Library, the Montour-Delong Fair/4-H, PA State Police Camp Cadet, Aphasia Center, Grange, Maria Joseph Manor Continuing Care Community, and many others.
Rebecca has held memberships in the PA District Attorneys Association, American Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, National Association of Drug Court Professionals, PA Sheriffs’ Association, Vehicular Crimes Prosecutor Network, Association of Corporate Counsel, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, and (P.E.O.) Philanthropic Educational Organization, in addition to affiliations with many other charities and organizations.
After residing for most of her adult life in central Pennsylvania, Rebecca now resides in Northeastern Pennsylvania with her family.
