The Honorable Wendy Demchick-Alloy is a judge in the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas. She was a prosecutor for more than 19 years, serving under four administrations in both Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. In the Montgomery County DA’s Office, she served as head of the county grand jury, head of the major crimes unit, and head of the sex crimes unit. In the Philadelphia DA’s Office, Ms. Demchick-Alloy was assigned to the juvenile, rape, child abuse, and homicide units. Although she has received considerable recognition for her successful prosecution of those accused of murder, rape and child abuse and molestation, her personal focus has been the need for victim representation in cases involving rape and child abuse. In 1998, while serving as a prosecutor in Montgomery County, Ms.Demchick-Alloy established the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project (MCAP). MCAP has grown from a handful of attorneys at the outset to more than 100 pro bono attorneys. MCAP attorneys represent abused and neglected children in Montgomery County Court. Ms. Demchick-Alloy received her Bachelor of Science in criminal justice from Northeastern University in 1978. During her freshman year she studied in Tel Aviv University, Israel. She graduated from Villanova Law School in 1981.
