Governor Deval Patrick announced on Wednesday the nomination of a Needham resident as an associate Justice of the Superior Court.
“I am honored to nominate Peter Krupp to the Superior Court bench,” said Patrick in a press release. “I commend him for his extraordinary record in both criminal and civil matters and I thank him for his willingness to serve.”
Krupp is one of the founding partners of the Boston firm Lurie & Krupp, according to the release. His practice is focused on criminal defense and commercial litigation.
He handles murders and other serious felony trials in state and federal courts, according to the release, and he accepts assignments for indigent criminal clients.
He has worked as an assistant federal public defender in the past, as well as working as litigation associate, according to the release. He was appointed in 2009 chair of the Criminal Justice Act Board, which helps administer the indigent criminal defense panel in federal court, according to the release.
He graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in 1983 and from the University of Chicago with a J.D. in 1986, according to the release.
If Krupp is confirmed, he will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of the Honorable Regina L. Quinlan, according to the release.
