Wendy Demchick-Alloy has been an accomplished prosecutor for over eighteen years, serving in two counties under four administrations of District Attorneys in both Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. In the Montgomery County DA’s Office, she served as head of the county Grand Jury Unit, 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 1997, while serving as a prosecutor in Montgomery County, Ms.Demchick-Alloy and her colleague Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman co-founded the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project (MCAP). MCAP has grown from a handful of attorneys at the outset to over 100 pro bono attorneys in 2009. MCAP attorneys represent abused and neglected children in Montgomery County Court. As of 2009, MCAP attorneys have represented over 1,100 children. Ms. Demchick-Alloy currently serves as the organization’s Project Director.

Admitted to practice before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the United States Federal District Court and the United States Supreme Court, Ms. Demchick-Alloy is a member of both the Montgomery Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Association. She is a past member of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. She has received numerous honors, awards and commendations from police departments throughout Montgomery County, the United States Attorney, the Montgomery, Pennsylvania and American Bar Associations, the Citizens Crime Commission and many other agencies and community organizations for her successful work as a prosecutor and for her continuing commitment to protecting the rights of crime victims, specifically children.

Ms.Demchick-Alloy currently serves as Solicitor for the Prison Board of the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. She had previously been appointed as a member of the Prison Board. She has served on the United States Attorney’s Arson Task Force. She was also appointed to serve on the United States Attorney’s Terrorism Task Force, established after September 11, 2001.

Ms. Demchick-Alloy is past President of the Board of Directors of Victims Services Center of Montgomery County. She presently serves on several Boards of Directors including The Academy In Manayunk, a school for children with learning disabilities, Montgomery Child Advocacy Project, Norristown Police Athletic League and Security On Campus, an agency committed to safety on the nation’s college campuses. She is a member of the Management Team of Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center, a multi-disciplinary center for child abuse investigations in Montgomery County. She is also a member of the Office of Children and Youth Childrens Roundtable of Montgomery County, working with members of the Montgomery County bench and other professionals, improving and expediting services to children who are in the Montgomery County court system.
Ms. Demchick-Alloy has been a member of the Montgomery Bar Association for over fourteen years, serving on the Board of Directors, the Executive Committee, the Judiciary Committee and continues to serve on the Bench Bar Committee. She has also served as Chair of the Criminal Rules Committee, Youth and the Law Committee and the Child Advocacy Committee.

Ms. Demchick-Alloy often presents training seminars to professionals and law enforcement throughout the region on topics ranging from forensics in a murder case to the prosecution of rape and child sexual abuse cases. She is a frequent guest lecturer at many schools, colleges and universities in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas. She is often a guest participant on several television and radio talk shows.

She has successfully prosecuted many high profile cases including assisting former District Attorney Bruce L. Castor, Jr. in the prosecution of Commonwealth vs.Guy Sileo also known as The General Wayne Inn murder case. She successfully prosecuted the case of Commonwealth vs. Paul Bellina, known as the “Naked Neighbor” homicide in Upper Gwynedd.
