Tony Verwey understands what it’s like to overcome adversity through sheer determination and hard work.
Tony comes from a working class background familiar to so many of us in Chester County. Raised in poverty by his single mother and grandmother, Tony enlisted in the military after high school, served in the USAF, and worked his way through college and law school, at times selling plasma to buy food. Despite these challenges, Tony earned his degrees, embarked on a successful law career and earned the rating of "qualified" by the Chester County Bar Association. Now he aims to bring his 31 years of diverse legal experience to the bench.
Tony matches his 31 years of diverse legal experience with six decades of life experience that affords him a unique perspective. Tony’s mother supported him and his four siblings working long hours as a waitress and Tony saw first-hand the impact of being treated with a lack of respect based on implicit bias and judgements. Tony Verwey will treat all who come before him with respect, dignity and fairness.
From a humble background, Tony Verwey has become an experienced attorney, with the wide knowledge of the law necessary to be a judge.
The impact of judges’ decisions on those in the courtroom, and the ripple effects of those decisions throughout our community, cannot be overstated. Our families, business owners, property owners and everyone who enters the courtroom deserves a judge who has a proven record of success addressing complex legal issues fairly and consistently. Tony Verwey will bring diverse experience to the bench, as he’s worked in multiple areas of the law, not just one, and handled complicated issues ranging from misappropriation of funds, zoning and eminent domain, to the constitutionality of state statutes. Tony Verwey is also the only candidate who has successfully argued cases before Pennsylvania’s Superior, Commonwealth and Supreme Courts.
Tony has served our community for decades. This includes co-founding the Trial Run 5k, which during Tony’s tenure raised $175,000 for Legal Aid of South Eastern PA. Tony is the only candidate to have received the Chester County Bar Association’s Service Award and a Citation from the Chester County Commissioners for his work on the County’s Workforce Investment Board, helping the unemployed and underemployed. He also spent 10 years with the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, protecting the public by prosecuting attorneys for ethics violations.
