A partner with the Philadelphia law firm Saul Ewing is one of the newest
members of the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board after Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett last month appointed the accomplished attorney to a four-year term on the panel tasked with investigating allegations of judicial misconduct.
Richard T. Frazier, a Republican, was appointed last month to a term on the JCB expiring in February 2018, the board announced.
Frazier, who joined Saul Ewing as an associate back in 1976, concentrates his law practice on business, tax and health law matters, according to a professional biography.
He sits on Saul Ewing’s Business and Finance Practice Group and its Health Law Practice Group.
Frazier is also a vice chair of the Tax and Accounting Interest Group of the Health Law Section of the American Bar Association and he is a member of the Joint Task Force of Health Law and Taxation Sections of the ABA, which is currently preparing comments on Accountable Car Organizations for submission to the Internal Revenue Service.
Frazier also sits on the Pennsylvania Department of State’s Corporation Bureau Advisory Committee.
Frazier obtained both his juris doctor degree and his Master’s of Legal Letters degree in taxation from the Villanova University School of Law.
Gov. Corbett appointed Frazier to the Judicial Conduct Board, where the attorney will serve as one of three members of the board from the bar of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
In addition to his work life, Frazier serves on the Easttown Township Board of Supervisors in Chester County, he is a member of the Joint Tredyffrin/Easttown Fire and Emergency Medical Services Task Force and the Chester County International Trade Council of the Chester County Industrial Development Council, and he has served on the board of, and currently serves as counsel to, Public Citizens for Children and Youth, which was formerly known as Philadelphia Citizens for Children and Youth, which bills itself as the leading child advocacy group in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
Frazier helped form PCCY back in 1980.
