Former Chester County Commissioner Michelle Kichline joins Lamb McErlane

After serving nine years as Chester County Commissioner, Michelle H. Kichline has joined Lamb McErlane PC as Of Counsel. Michelle will focus her practice on municipal and government law, as well as litigation.

During her time as Commissioner, Kichline served as the Chair of the Board and the Chair of the County Election Board. She developed regional planning expertise while serving on the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) and garnered experience in transportation related issues as a board member on the Greater Valley Forge Transportation

Management Association (GVF) and Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC). Her service as a board member on both the Delaware River Port Authority and on the

Regional Advisory Committee III for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) give her valuable insight into multi state governmental operations. Her work as a board member of

the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) has broadened her knowledge of all aspects of county government. 

Her time as both Chair of the Tredyffrin Township Board of Supervisors and the Chair of its Zoning Hearing Board makes her one of the few attorneys in the region with local, county and state government experience as an elected official.

“I know Michelle had multiple suitors, and am thrilled she chose to join us,” said Joel L.

Frank, Lamb McErlane’s Chairman and Managing Partner. “There are not many attorneys who

possess the diversification and sophistication of experience that Michelle does. Those attributes

certainly will serve our clients well.”

Michelle’s leadership in the business and transportation communities has been recognized by

multiple organizations. Michelle received the Leadership Award for Elected Service from the

Greater Valley Forge Transportation Association; the Senator Robert J. Thompson Public Service

Award from the Exton Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Helena Devereux Women in

Leadership award from the Main Line Chamber of Commerce.

“I am eager to continue my career with Lamb McErlane, one of the most well-regarded law

firms in the region,” said Kichline. “ I am looking forward to bringing my unique perspective and knowledge to assist the firm and its clients, as well as continuing my community and regional involvement.”

Lamb McErlane PC is a full service regional law firm based in West Chester,  with additional offices in Philadelphia, Newtown Square, Oxford, Exton and Mount Laurel, NJ.
