Douglas Reichley (b. December 21, 1961) was a Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, representing District 134. In 2003, Reichley joined the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. He resigned after being Lehigh County judge in November of 2011.[1] House Speaker Sam Smith (R) initially maintained that he was legally prohibited from scheduling the special election until the state had established new legislative redistricting maps. However, on February 29, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that the special election could not wait and set the April 24 date. The ruling also mandated elections to fill five other vacancies.[2]

Reichley earned his B.A. from Lafayette College in 1983. He went on to receive his J.D. from Dickinson School of Law in 1986.

After earning his law degree, Reichley began working as an attorney. He worked for Snyder, Dimmich, and Guldin, Professional Corporation from 1987 to 1989. He then worked as Deputy District Attorney for the Lehigh County District Attorney's Office from 1989 to 2000. From 2000 to 2001, he worked for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office as Assistant District Attorney. He has worked for Lightner Law Offices since 2001.
