Gov. Tom Corbett recently appointed a Pittsburgh-area attorney to serve out a four-year
term on the state Judicial Conduct Board as a lawyer elector member.
The JCB’s chief counsel, Robert A. Graci, made the announcement July 12, close to two weeks after lawyer Robert G. Del Greco, Jr. officially began his term on the board, which is tasked with levying disciplinary charges against state judges in instances of suspected ethics violations.
Del Greco, a shareholder in the law firm of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C., has represented public officials, doctors, professional athletes and coaches, authors, entertainers, and even fellow lawyers during his three-decade-plus career, according to a bio provided by the Judicial Conduct Board.
Prior to joining Dickie McCamey, which also has Pennsylvania locations in Philadelphia and Harrisburg, as well as in other parts of the country, Del Greco served as an assistant district attorney in Allegheny County, which is home to Pittsburgh in western Pennsylvania.
Del Greco has also served as a member of the Hearing Committee of the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, and as an adjunct professor at Duquesne University School of Law, which is where Del Greco obtained his law degree.
The Pittsburgh-based attorney is also a frequent lecturer who has authored publications and presented seminars on behalf of the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, according to the biography.
Del Greco is admitted to the bars of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court and is a member of the Allegheny County and Pennsylvania Bar Associations.
