Why She’s Running

“I’ve spent my legal career devoted to treating clients and individuals the way I would want someone to treat my family,” said VanderKam. “I strive to ensure that all of my clients, even in the most difficult and traumatic personal circumstances, leave my office feeling that we have improved their lives and put them back on the right path. It would be my privilege to bring that compassion for people to our Bucks County Bench.”
