Jill Beck
Litigation Attorney, Blank Rome

Jill Beck has used her experience in litigation and appellate advocacy to help Pennsylvanians gain access to justice. As an attorney at the law firm Blank Rome, Beck serves as a litigation attorney and the pro bono chair for its Pittsburgh office. In her first few months as chair of the pro bono committee, Beck has taken on cases to help underserved individuals in the legal system, including victims of domestic violence and wage theft, those experiencing housing insecurity and low-income civil litigants. 

Beck stresses that she didn’t always want to be a lawyer, but after working for AmeriCorps and providing services to children involved in the juvenile system, she said she realized she “wanted to be the type of lawyer who really knew my clients and could advocate for their needs based on that knowledge.” 

Beck rejoined Blank Rome last year after taking a leave of absence to run for Pennsylvania Superior Court judge, where she lost in the Democratic primary. She got her start in legal work after graduating from George Washington University and Duquesne University School of Law, and began her career as an attorney at KidsVoice, representing abused, neglected and at-risk children in Allegheny County. She also served as a judicial law clerk for Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Christine Donohue, conducting legal research and drafting issues of first impression and state and federal constitutional claims.
