Gov. Charlie Baker on Monday nominated to the Juvenile Court a former state and county prosecutor who also launched her own law firm in Plymouth.
Linda Sable of Cohasset, a graduate of UMass Amherst and Vermont Law School, also previously worked for four years as a senior manager for IBM in Cambridge before returning in 2002 to her own practice in Hull, where she has focused on civil and criminal litigation and family law.
Sable launched her career in 1988 as an assistant district attorney in Plymouth County and joined the attorney general's criminal bureau in 1990 before becoming a partner at her own firm, Sable & Wright in Plymouth.
The next step for Sable is an appearance before the eight-member, elected Governor's Council, which vets all of the governor's judicial nominees. If confirmed, she would join a court with 41 jobs that holds sessions in 40 locations around Massachusetts.
