Stephen R. Gibble
Stephen R. Gibble was born and raised in Lititz, Pennsylvania, where he attended Warwick High School. Upon graduation, he journeyed to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to study history at Oral Roberts University. Upon graduating in 1979, Mr. Gibble went on to earn his law degree at the O. W. Coburn School of Law at Oral Roberts University where he served as Student Body President, completed the three-year program, and graduated with his Juris Doctor Degree in 1982.
While in college, Mr. Gibble was elected Chairman of the College Republican National Committee, the largest student political organization in the free world and an auxiliary of the Republican National Committee in Washington, D.C. During his time in that position, he served as the Co-Chairman of the Reagan for President National Youth Campaign and spoke at the Republican National Convention in Detroit in 1980.
Rather than seek a Presidential Appointment in Washington, D.C., Mr. Gibble felt drawn to come back home to his roots in Lititz. His family had lived in Lancaster County since the early 1700s, so those roots were deep. After practicing law for several years in various firms, Mr. Gibble opened his own law firm on Main Street in Lititz in 2005.
Mr. Gibble really enjoys the practice of law and helping clients with their challenges. He focuses primarily in the areas of:
Estate Planning | Wills | Trusts
Estates (Probate and Administration) | Powers of Attorney
Guardianships | Elder Law | Nursing Home Planning (Medicaid)
Businesses | Real Estate | General Matters
Mr. Gibble is presently and has been a co-presenter in estate planning seminars with PNC Bank at numerous retirement home communities throughout Lancaster and Lebanon Counties and with Fulton Bank at the Lititz Community Center. In both 2005 and 2009 the readers of Lancaster County Magazine honored Mr. Gibble as one of the top five attorneys in the annual "Best of Lancaster" survey.
Mr. Gibble also enjoys volunteering and has a long and strong track record of significant community involvement. He served as:
- President of the Lancaster County Council of Churches
- President of the Warwick Association of Churches
- Chairman of the Lancaster County Republican Committee
- Trustee of the Lancaster County Historical Society
- Trustee of the Linden Hall School for Girls
At present, Mr. Gibble serves as:
- A Founding Trustee of the Anne Brossman Sweigart Charitable Foundation of Ephrata, Pennsylvania
- A Trustee of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Society of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
- An Honorary Trustee of the Mount Gretna Historical Society.
He also teaches two senior adult Sunday school classes at the Lititz Church of the Brethren.
When he is not working with clients, running to meetings or chatting with his neighbors and friends, Mr. Gibble can be found hiking, driving his 1946 Willys Jeep or sitting on his porch at his home in Mount Gretna, listening to the music from the nearby Mount Gretna Playhouse.
In 2019, readers of LNP voted to award Mr. Gibble two first place awards, one for the LNP People's Choice for Elder Law & also the LNP Reader's Choice Award for Estate Planning/Wills.
