Jessica Pritchard Serves as Case Commentator for Superior Court PCN En Banc Coverage

On March 30th, Jessica A. Pritchard, a Partner of Antheil Maslow & MacMinn, LLP and President-Elect Bucks County Bar Association appeared on Pennsylvania Cable Network ("PCN") providing commentary on the Superior Court of Pennsylvania’s en banc session.  En banc sessions are cases heard before a larger panel of the Superior Court (normally a  three judge panel). Not all requests for a rehearing en banc are granted.  Often, an appeals court will not take the time to rehear a case en banc unless the case includes a question of major importance (like how to interpret a new law), or the smaller panel’s opinion appears to contradict state law or precedent.  The cases were originally presented before the en banc panel on March 21, 2017. Ms. Pritchard was selected as a  case commentator to provide viewers with relevant background information pertaining to each case.  The commentators enhance the educational aspect of the coverage by making the process more accessible to viewers.

Ms. Pritchard focuses her practice exclusively in the area of family law, where she handles all phases of the negotiation and litigation of domestic relations cases, including divorce, child custody, child support, alimony/spousal support, equitable distribution, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
