The cost of legal ads is determined either by “line charge” or by a flat fee of $50. All prices include the cost of a notarized proof of publication sent to you for your legal records.

Examples of the $50 flat fee are: Estate (or Trust) notice, Fictitious Name registration, Name change, Dissolution notice, Charter/Incorporation Notice, Articles of Amendment, Sale of Property, Admission to Bar, Notice of Filing of Petition, Vehicle Title Search, and Replevin or Replevin Hearing.

It is better to contact the Business Manager Dr. B. Bohleke (bắh-lĕh-kee) during business hours (M-F 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at 717-337-9812 or for the cost of ads that are billed via line charge. The line charge is dependent upon the length of the final draft for your ad.

Ads can be brought to Room 305 in person, sent via the email address above, or by U.S. mail to:

Law Library, Room 305
117 Baltimore Street
Gettysburg, PA 17325

Because credit/debit cards cannot be accepted at this time, bring or mail a check made out to the “Adams County Bar Association” to the Law Library address. You may send the ad via email and the check by U.S. mail, or send them together in the U.S. mail.

REMEMBER to include your mailing address and phone number in your communications so Dr. B knows where to send the proof of publication and whom to call if your email address does not work properly.

Free templates are available if you are unsure how to phrase your ad.

The Business Manager cannot dispense legal advice.

For those who need to publish a legal ad in a second newspaper of record in Adams county, contact Ms Carolyn Schreiber at the Gettysburg Times by sending the ad to She will get back to you about the cost to place the ad, which will approximate the line charge of the Legal Journal.
