Meet Judge Kevin Brobson

President Judge Kevin Brobson will offer a new voice and perspective to Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court. He will be a voice of reason, a defender of the law as it is written, and a champion of fair and impartial justice.

Born and raised in Lycoming County, Kevin is the son of a retired Pennsylvania State Trooper and grandson of former Philadelphia Police Officer. His mother worked at the Little League Baseball’s National headquarters in Williamsport. Growing up, his parents taught him that there is no substitute for hard work.

Kevin went to college and law school in Central Pennsylvania and then clerked for a federal judge in Philadelphia before becoming an associate with Pittsburgh-headquartered Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney. There he stayed in private practice for 14 years, working in commercial litigation and administrative law, eventually becoming a shareholder and practice group chair in the firm.

Since 2010, Kevin has served as a judge on the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, a statewide intermediate appellate court one step below the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The Commonwealth Court is entrusted with the important responsibility of ensuring that government, at all levels, follows the law. He has not shied away from the controversial cases during his tenure. He has ruled in favor of gun rights, school choice, and, perhaps most notably, the justiciability of constitutional challenges to congressional districts drawn by the state legislature. His colleagues expressed their confidence in his collegiality, professionalism, and leadership when, in December 2020, they elected Kevin to serve as the 10th President Judge of the Commonwealth Court.

President Judge Brobson and his wife Lauren are raising their three children in a rural community just outside of Harrisburg, Dauphin County. Kevin is an active and engaged father and husband, often found coaching teams, cheering on the sidelines, running the after-school family shuttle, cooking dinner, and walking the family dogs. The Pennsylvania Bar Association has awarded him its highest rating—highly recommended—for a seat on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Rated “Highly Recommended” by the Pennsylvania Bar Association

"The candidate was elected to the Commonwealth Court in 2009 and was retained in 2019 for a second 10-year term. Prior to being elected to the bench, he worked at a law firm for 14 years with a practice including commercial litigation, as well as appellate and administrative law. Since joining the court, the candidate has authored opinions exhibiting his breadth of experience and knowledge of the law. The candidate has distinguished himself by serving as a member and chair of the Judicial Conduct Board of Pennsylvania. He has earned the respect and confidence of his peers on both the Commonwealth and Pennsylvania Supreme courts as evidenced by being elected as president judge of the Commonwealth Court despite not having the most seniority. He also obtained special appointments to the Supreme Court for pending cases and to preside over an expedited bench trial of a case involving a Pennsylvania constitutional matter. The candidate has engaged in a wide range of community service. His commitment to the citizens of Pennsylvania, combined with the high degree of respect and trust of his colleagues and his demonstrated excellence and integrity in his jurisprudence from the bench, leads the commission to highly recommend the candidate as a justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania."
