Wolf, Baldwin and Associates, PC announces the addition of new associate Kristen Doleva-Lecher



Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, P.C. is pleased to announce the addition of Kristen Doleva-Lecher to their firm as an associate attorney. Ms. Doleva-Lecher will practice at the firm’s Reading office at 606 Court Street. She will also be available for appointments in the firm’s Pottstown office two days per week. She will focus on general litigation, family, and business and corporate matters, as well as alternative dispute resolution and mediation.

Ms. Doleva-Lecher earned her undergraduate degree from University of Pittsburgh. She obtained a Juris Doctor from Nova Southeastern University – Shepard Broad Law Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

As a life-long resident of Berks County, Mrs. Doleva-Lecher is proud to be joining a firm with such a strong commitment to community. “Practicing law in a county in which I spent approximately 30 years of my life is very important to me. One of the aspects of practicing law that I enjoy most is assisting local business owners with their legal issues while leading them to success with their company. The success of local business owners is ultimately the success of our community.”

Ms. Doleva-Lecher was most recently associated with Ryan, Russell, Ogden & Seltzer in Wyomissing, PA. She had a solo practice, also in Wyomissing, from 2005 to 2007, and has also practiced with Mette, Evans, Woodside in Harrisburg, PA and Golden, Masano, Bradley in Wyomissing, PA.

“After practicing law in Pennsylvania for approximately 7 years on my return to the legal arena, I carefully targeted the type of firm with which I wanted to associate. My criteria included a firm where the attorneys are very experienced, ethical and who truly care about their clients. I also sought out a firm where there is a sense of internal loyalty. In Wolf, Baldwin, I found all of this.”

“I met Jack Wolf while we were both completing a mediation certification course. It is not often that I have met the caliber of an attorney like Mr. Wolf who didn’t come off as unapproachable. Within a few days I was bending his ear for legal advice. I am humbled to be able to say I work for him now. It is a rarity to have not only an extremely intelligent and successful mentor but one that is also business savvy.”

“We are excited about Kristen joining the firm,” said Jack Wolf, founder of Wolf, Baldwin & Associates. “Our firm has had a presence in Berks County for a long time, and we are looking forward to being able to grow in that region. Kristen’s roots in that community will be an asset to developing our offerings there.”

Mr. Wolf and Ms. Doleva-Lecher have both completed 50 hours of training as certified mediators, Mr. Wolf in Montgomery County and Ms. Doleva-Lecher in Berks & Montgomery counties.

“Mediation is an attractive alternative to litigation in many kinds of cases,” said Mr. Wolf. “It offers clients a cost-effective, speedy, and private alternative to resolving disputes through the courts.”
