These are voluntary, unpaid positions to which the members are appointed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in three year terms. Cordisco will represent District II, which includes much of southeastern Pennsylvania.

Cordisco’ s career began in political office, where he was first elected to represent the 140th legislative district in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1980 at the age of 25. During his tenure, Cordisco chaired the House Committee on Veterans Health Care and sponsored multiple pieces of legislation to provide assistance to veterans. He left the House in 1986.

He has represented injured victims in federal and state courts across Pennsylvania since 1987, and founded Cordisco & Bradway on Mill Street in Bristol in 1990.
