Kenneth J. Horoho, Jr., partner and chair of the Family Law Practice Group at Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP and former Pennsylvania Bar Association President, has been appointed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court as Vice-Chair of its Domestic Relations Procedural Rules Committee.

Ken’s Vice-Chair term on the committee began February 1, 2024.

The Domestic Relations Procedural Rules Committee advises and assists the Supreme Court on matters related to the practice of family law in Pennsylvania including procedural rules related to divorce, support, custody, paternity, and protection from abuse. The primary goal of the committee is to simplify family law practice by recommending new rules or amendments to existing procedural rules relating to family law matters.

This latest appointment is yet another leadership assignment for Ken in state, local, and national bar association organizations. In addition to serving as the 112th President of the Pennsylvania Bar Association in 2006, he has been elected and appointed to numerous PBA committees, task forces and special projects throughout his distinguished career. Ken also served for 12 years on the Allegheny County Bar Association’s Board of Governors and was Chairperson of its Family Law and Young Lawyer Sections.

In 2009, he was appointed by Supreme Court Chief Justice Ron Castille to the Interbranch Commission on Juvenile Justice; a special panel created by Governor Edward Rendell and the Pennsylvania General Assembly to investigate the causes of one of the most extraordinary cases of judicial corruption in state history.

Ken served as a member of the Board of Trustees at Saint Francis University from 2010 to 2022. He is also a member of the Thomas R. Kline Duquesne University School of Law Dean’s Advisory Board and most recently was appointed to the Neighborhood Legal Services Board of Directors.

In addition, Ken served 13 years as an adjunct professor on the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law where he taught Advanced Family Law Trial Advocacy. He is a frequent lecturer for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the PBA and the ACBA on topics of divorce, support, equitable distribution and custody.

During the past three decades, he has been involved in some of the most complex equitable distribution, divorce, and custody cases in Western Pennsylvania. He was recognized by his peers for his divorce and family law practice by being selected by Woodward-White to their 25th Anniversary Edition of The Best Lawyers In America and has been in The Best Lawyers In America since 2007, as well as being named a Pennsylvania SuperLawyer since 2004.

Ken received a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Saint Francis University and his Juris Doctorate from Duquesne University School of Law.
