35 years in Philadelphia's courtrooms dedicated to our kids & those in need.

Betsy Wahl has spent 35 years serving in Philadelphia's courts — including presiding as a Hearing Officer in Juvenile Court (since 2002), mediating family matters, and serving as a public defender. Now Betsy's running for the Court of Common Pleas because she knows that a balanced approach yields not only safer communities, but also a society that values and lifts up our youth. 

After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 1981, Betsy went to law school, worked at Harvard University's Prisoner Assistance Program, and came back to Philadelphia to dedicate her life to fighting for those in need. Betsy lived in Mt. Airy for over 25 years, where she raised her three children. She now lives in Fairmount.
