State Senator John C. Rafferty Jr., R-Montgomery, has joined West Chester, Pa.-based Lamb McErlane as of counsel.
Rafferty represents Pennsylvania's 44th Senatorial District, which includes portions of Berks, Chester and Montgomery counties.
Rafferty is also the chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, vice chairman of the Judiciary Committee and a member of the Senate Appropriations, Banking and Insurance, Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure, and Law and Justice committees.
"We are elated to have Senator Rafferty join our firm," Lamb McErlane managing partner Joel L. Frank said in a press release. “His experience and abilities will prove extremely valuable to our firm and our clients.”
Prior to his joining the Senate, Rafferty’s private practice focused on education, real estate, zoning and business and estates law.
Rafferty made a bid for the GOP nomination in the most recent state attorney general election, but ended his campaign in January 2012.
