AALAM congratulates new judge Tejal Mehta, who recently won unanimous confirmation to a seat on the Concord District Court bench. The Governor's Council voted 8-0 to approve Mehta, a week after the panel held a hearing on her nomination. Judge Mehta has been in private practice in Woburn since 2016 and previously worked as a Middlesex County prosecutor for about a decade. “She has everything that we look for,” Councilor Marilyn Devaney said before the vote. “She has probably more experience in her tenure as a lawyer than people who have been there 25 years.”
AALAM is committed to increasing the diversity of the judiciary within the Commonwealth and encourages those interested to apply. AALAM offers support and resources during the application and confirmation process for those interested in a judgeship.
