David L. Ashworth

President Judge

Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas

Elected to the bench in November 1999, Ashworth has served as president judge since January 2020.  

He is responsible for the administration of the court system of Lancaster County and also presides over Criminal Court, Civil Court and Adult Drug Court. 

“I am honored to serve as president judge and work with so many dedicated court employees during one of the most difficult times in the history of our court system,” he said. “I am also proud of helping to create our Adult Drug Court, Veteran’s Court and Mental Health Court.” 

Active in the community, Ashworth has served on numerous boards and as president of the Rotary Club of Lancaster. “My hobbies include Tang Soo Do karate, in which I earned a third-degree black belt, teaching sailing as a U.S. Coast Guard licensed OUPV captain, and competing in triathlons,” he said. “My favorite thing to do for fun is to spend time hiking, camping and sailing with my family – all of which recharges my batteries so I can tackle the responsibilities of my day job.”
