Christopher F Bagnato for Magisterial District Judge
Candidate: Christopher Bagnato
COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY BY ENSURING JUSTICE & INTEGRITY, WITH PASSION
Primary Date: May 16, 2017
My name is Christopher Frank Bagnato, Esquire and I am an attorney with a general law practice. I reside in Newtown Square Pennsylvania and have lived here for approximately 34 years. I grew up here after being adopted by wonderful parents Frank and Edie Bagnato from Colombia South America. Both my younger brother Eric and I attended schools here from Culbertson Elementary School to Paxon Hollow Middle School to Marple Newtown High school. I reside here with my beautiful wife Veronica and 4 month old David Christopher Bagnato.
My first jobs were in Newtown Square making cheesesteaks and hoagies at Carmines Pizza then moving on to cashier at Acme Markets in Newtown Square where I worked for 6 years through college.
I attended West Chester University with a major of Spanish Education, then went off to Law School at Indiana University School of Law where I received my Juris Doctor Degree. I came back home my final year of law school to attend Villanova Law School in Delaware County. Then I obtained a Master of Laws degree in Trial Advocacy from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia.
I have had many roles in my life professionally. I have seen the courtroom from both adversarial sides. I started out working with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office. That is where I represented this Commonwealth within the Magistrate Courts where I am currently running for office today. I then went on to private practice, ensuring that the rights of those charged with criminal offenses have been properly protected. I believe in a strong justice system that is both fair and impartial. I have litigated thousands of civil and criminal hearings and traveled to hundreds of different courtrooms throughout the area infront of many different types of judges throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey State, Federal and Appellate Courts.
I have worked to help many different people within the area of Delaware County and surrounding cities and suburbs. Helping those people in the areas of Family Law, Criminal Law, Immigration, Personal Injury and Commercial Litigation. I represent many people within the communities and especially many Latino Americans since I myself am Latino and speak Spanish. I have met many people at their best times and at their worst times. I have compassion which enables me to work with people regardless of their economic status, race, gender, religion or anything else.
I am running for Magistrate Judge because I want to give back to the Community that has given me so much. I believe that my extensive legal experience in the practice of law makes me uniquely qualified to serve the citizens of this District as Magistrate District Judge. I would like to put my experience to work for all of you and I am asking for your support in the upcoming elections.
