On Wednesday Gov. Charlie Baker nominated Elizabeth Teixeira as an Associate Justice of the Probate and Family Court.
Gov. Baker in a statement said, “The many cases that Attorney Teixeira has tried over her decades practicing family law have prepared her well to serve as an Associate Justice of the Probate and Family Court.”
Attorney Teixeira began her career in law in 1983 as a Law Clerk at Aleixo, Miles, Murray & Rounds, P.C and joined the firm as an Associate Attorney in 1987 after completing her legal education.
For much of her legal career, Attorney Teixeira has been practicing before the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court.
In a statement, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito said, “Throughout her career, Attorney Teixeira has demonstrated her commitment to the families of the Commonwealth.”
Attorney Teixeira earned her Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University Law School, and her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
If confirmed by the Governor’s Council, Attorney Teixeira will fill the seat vacated by the Honorable George Phelan.
