Former Assistant Northwestern District Attorney Kevin V. Maltby has been nominated by Gov. Charlie Baker to assume the role of associate justice of the Northampton District Court.

“Attorney Maltby’s years of experience in private practice, as an educator and in the Longmeadow community, have prepared him well ...” Baker said in a statement.

Maltby is currently a shareholder at the law firm of Bacon Wilson, P.C., in Springfield. He also serves on the Supreme Judicial Court’s Standing Committee on Professionalism and is a former president of the Hampden County Bar Association.

Maltby did not respond to multiple requests for comments over two days.

“With his broad experience in a wide range of legal areas, Attorney Maltby will bring expertise to the District Court bench,” Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito said in a statement. “If appointed, I am confident he will serve the Massachusetts judiciary well.”

Judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council.

Prior to joining Bacon Wilson, P.C, Maltby served as an assistant Northwestern District attorney. Maltby is an adjunct faculty member in Bay Path University’s Legal Studies Department. He attended Suffolk University Law School after graduating cum laude from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He currently lives in Longmeadow with his family.
