On January 1, 2007, Arthur Levy became “of counsel,” or to put it another way, Arthur became “semi-retired.”
Arthur Levy is a high-profile lawyer who serves(d) as Solicitor for Ridley School District, Chichester School District, Chester Water Authority, and Chester Township, and as special counsel for the City of Chester and the Administration of Chester-Upland School District. He has previously served as Solicitor for the Borough of Trainer, Trainer Sewer Authority, the Borough of Yeadon, the Borough of Rutledge, the Southern Delaware Valley School Authority and the William Penn School District. Serving as Solicitor for these public bodies entails the preparation of legal documents for significant commercial projects, real estate transactions, labor relations, employment law and general litigation including real estate tax assessment proceedings.
Arthur's practice for the past 47 years has extended beyond the public sector and has encompassed civil and criminal litigation before state and federal trial and appellate courts.
In 1984 Arthur merged his then firm practice with Eckell Sparks. He commenced the practice of law in 1957 following two years of service in the U.S. Army. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Finance and Commerce in 1952 and the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1955. His commencement of the practice of law was with the firm of his late uncle, Albert Blumberg, a most prestigious Delaware County lawyer prior to his untimely death in 1965, and his late brother, Melvin G. Levy, who later served as a judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County from 1978 to 1992.
Arthur served several terms as a member of the Board of Directors of the Delaware County Bar Association and is presently president of the Board of Directors of the Delaware County Legal Assistance Association, Inc., now trading as Community Economic Development Resource Center.
