Conville Announces Candidacy for Schuylkill County Court of Common Pleas

James G. Conville, of Port Carbon is announcing his candidacy for Schuylkill County Court of Common Pleas Judge. 

He is seeking nomination in the May 18, 2021 primary election, respectively asking for both Democrats and Republicans for their vote, to serve on the Schuylkill County bench. 

“Most of my professional life has been spent inside of the courtroom,” said Conville. “I believe I have the record, insight, and experience to be an impartial judge for all the people,” he added.

Conville is a partner in the law firm of Zane, Rossi, Conville and Harley, Schuylkill Haven and Pine Grove.

With over 26 years of experience practicing law Conville says his lengthy experience in the courtroom has given me a unique insight into the criminal victims desire for justice, as well as the accused’s entitlement to fairness.

Conville has also dedicated a significant portion of his legal practice to serve the children of Schuylkill county. 

As court appointed guardian ad litem, Conville has represented and acted in the best interests of children that have fallen victim to abuse, neglect, and dependency, to help them overcome very difficult circumstances. 

“This work has really underscored the need to promote family values and also protect our most valuable of resources, the children of Schuylkill County, and has truly been some of the most rewarding of my professional work” said Conville.

He also says he has an appreciation for hard work and getting the job done right, passed down from his coal mining father and his textile mill working mother. Prior to becoming an attorney, Conville was a dock worker and member of the Teamsters. “I’m not a politician nor a part of any political machine.” 

“I’m just the product of a hard-working middle-class family, that needed to work full-time while attending law school in the evenings and on Saturday mornings to pay my way through school myself.” Conville said.

Conville is also active in his community and is dedicated to serving volunteer fire companies, local governments, and municipal authorities as their solicitor. “I was very fortunate to be able to build a successful practice the old fashion way, through hard work and treating people fairly, with due respect,” and added “ I believe that my values and upbringing are very reflective of the many good people of Schuylkill county.”

Conville is a 1987 graduate of Penn State University, 1994 graduate of Widner University School of Law, Harrisburg, and a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Schuylkill County Bar Association. He is married to his wife Lisa for 14 years, and has 2 stepsons and 4 grandchildren.
