James worked in estate planning and administration, specializing in business, elder and tax law. He received several honors throughout his career, including the designation of Pennsylvania Super Lawyer for estate planning, and provided pro-bono work for the World Forgotten Children’s Foundation and Lebanon Valley Bicycle Coalition.
James also helped build JSDC, now a 24-attorney firm based in Derry Township with satellite offices in Mechanicsburg and Philadelphia.
“The JSDC family is shocked and saddened by the loss of Gary,” said Scott Dietterick, managing partner at the firm. “He was a brilliant attorney and was beloved by his coworkers and clients. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his three children and fiance, Cindy, as well as his many, many friends and clients. He will be greatly missed.”
JSDC partners Neil Yahn and Ted Seeber will help handle the needs of James’ clients.
