A Seward attorney has been appointed to a district court judgeship.

Christina M. Marroquin, 40, is public defender for Seward County and runs a solo law practice encompassing criminal, family and juvenile law, among many other areas, according to a news release from the office of Gov. Pete Ricketts.

Ricketts appointed her to the Fifth Judicial District bench on Monday. The district is comprised of Boone, Butler, Colfax, Hamilton, Merrick, Nance, Platte, Polk, Saunders, Seward and York counties.

The vacancy was due to the retirement of Judge Mary C. Gilbride.

Before serving as public defender, Marroquin was a partner at Pollack & Ball and a research coordinator at the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center. She received her law degree from the University of California Hastings College of Law.
