James Pasch

Regional Director: Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia & Western Pennsylvania, Anti-Defamation League (ADL)

In 2019 James Pasch became the Cleveland Regional Director of the Anti-Defamation League (serving Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania), having previously served on ADL’s Cleveland Regional Board. He is serving in this role during a particularly challenging time with incidents of antisemitism rising an unprecedented amount across the region. Pasch, in leading the ADL Cleveland office, launched a pro-bono legal assistance program to assist victims of hate crimes in Ohio. Under his leadership, ADL’s No Place for Hate education programming has grown over 100 percent region-wide.

James Pasch graduated from University of Vermont and earned his law degree at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Prior to entering the legal profession, Mr. Pasch worked on Capitol Hill, first for Senator Frank Lautenberg and then as a law clerk on the Senate Judiciary Committee for Senator Patrick Leahy. He then built a thriving small firm litigation practice in Cleveland.

Mr. Pasch served as the Case Western Reserve Law School’s Assistant Dean of Development and External Affairs during the Law School’s Capital Campaign. Mr. Pasch has also served two-terms as a Councilman in Beachwood, Ohio where he led the City’s passage of its anti-discrimination ordinance.
