In full disclosure, the following is a press release from the Governor’s office submitted to SOURCE media.
BOSTON — This week, Governor Charlie Baker appointed Sarah F. Jubinville to serve as Associate District Court Judge.
“Lawyer Jubinville’s years of experience in both public and private practice prepare her well for the bench,” Governor Charlie Baker said. “If confirmed, she will be a valuable asset to the district court.”
“Having served as Deputy Clerk, Attorney Jubinville has an in-depth knowledge of the court system and the people who appear before him,” Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito said. “We are pleased to submit his name to the Governor’s Council for its advice and consent.”
The District Court hears a wide range of criminal, civil, housing, juvenile, mental health, and other cases. The district court’s criminal jurisdiction extends to all crimes carrying a sentence of up to five years, and many other specific crimes with potentially greater penalties; all offences; and all violations of town and city ordinances and regulations. The District Court is located in 62 courts across the Commonwealth.
Judicial appointments are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council. Candidates for judicial openings are reviewed by the Judicial Appointments Commission (JNC) and recommended to the governor. Governor Baker established the JNC in February 2015 pursuant to Executive Order 558, a non-partisan, apolitical commission made up of volunteers drawn from a cross-section of the Commonwealth’s diverse population to review court applications. Twenty-one members were subsequently appointed to the JNC in April 2015.
Jubinville began his legal career as an intern in the Plymouth County Attorney’s Office in 1998, as well as a secretary in the Family Protection Unit and later in the Brockton District Court Office until in 2002.
In 2003, Attorney Jubinville became an associate attorney at McGivney, Kluger & Gannon, PC before joining Colucci, Colucci, Marcus & Flavin, PC as a partner specializing in civil litigation until 2010.
Attorney Jubinville then began her own practice as a solo practitioner at the law firm of Sarah F. Jubinville where she handled cases in a variety of civil and criminal litigation.
In 2017, Barrister Jubinville joined the Clerk’s Office of the Plymouth County Superior Court as Deputy Clerk, a position she still holds today. She was also a barrister in the Norfolk County Bar and was court-appointed in criminal cases in the county courts.
Residing in Milton, lawyer Jubinville received her bachelor’s degree from Fairfield University in 1998 and her law degree from the New England School of Law in 2002.
