  Honorable Lisa A. Richette Honored with Portrait
09-11-2008

The late Honorable Lisa A. Richette was honored on September 11, 2008 (her birthday) with a Portrait Dedication Ceremony at the Honorable Nicholas A. Cipriani Family Court Building in Philadelphia.

Judge Richette graduated as the first Italian American woman from the University of Pennsylvania and in 1952, she graduated from Yale Law School.

One of Philadelphia’s most well-known advocates for children and a true forerunner of child welfare and juvenile justice. In 1969, Judge Richette authored a book entitled, “The Throwaway Children,” about the juvenile justice system in Philadelphia.

Judge Richette served on the Bench in Philadelphia from 1971 until the time of her death, October 26, 2007. In 2000, she was presented the first “Outstanding Women in Law Award” by the Justinian Society. The award has since been named after Her Honor. The reception included tributes by The Honorables Kevin M. Dougherty, C. Darnell Jones, III; Abram Frank Reynolds, and Anthony J. DeFino. Attorneys Gina Furia Rubel and Roberta D. Aversa also paid tribute to Judge Richette.

Immediately following the unveiling, the portrait was hung in Courtroom E, the room where Judge Richette last presided.

Pictured from L to R: The Honorable Kevin M. Dougherty, Administrative Judge, Family Court Division, Court of Common Pleas; The Honorable C. Darnell Jones, II, President Judge, Court of Common Pleas; The Honorable Louis J. Presenza, President Judge, Philadelphia Municipal Court, Gina Furia Rubel, Esq., Chancellor, The Justinian Society; Robert D.
