The Lancaster Bar Association is proud of the contribution our members have made in the community. From pre-Revolutionary times to the present, local attorneys have served the diverse needs of society by advising charitable, religious, educational, civic and cultural organizations. They have served county, state and the nation. We recall these professionals who, in addition to the practice of law, rendered outstanding service to their fellow citizens.

George Ross, a signer of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, was a member of the First Continental Congress. He was admitted to the Lancaster bar in 1750. John Hopkins served in the legislature supporting the call for a Constitutional Convention. Two Lancaster attorneys, Jasper Yeates and John Hubley, were delegates to the Pennsylvania Convention and voted to ratify the Constitution. James Buchanan served as President of the United States preceding Abraham Lincoln. General Daniel Strickler was Lieutenant-Governor of Pennsylvania.
