FAIRFIELD — Christine Donovan has been appointed to the Judicial Council’s Family and Juvenile Law Advisory Committee.

Donovan is a senior staff attorney with Solano County Superior Court. She joined the staff in 2007 after earning her juris doctor from Santa Clara University School of Law. She’s a certified family law specialist and has served as a faculty member for the Center for Judiciary Education and Research at the administrative offices of the court.

“This is fantastic,” said presiding Judge Paul L. Beeman in a press release. “Now a large number of people within the state’s judiciary will find out just how brilliant Ms. Donovan is. She does a fantastic job for the Solano Superior Court.”

The Family and Juvenile Law Advisory Committee makes recommendations for improving the administration of justice in all cases involving marriage, family or children. It also makes recommendations to the Judicial Council about the grants for programs and projects involving court appointed special advocates, child support commissioners and family law facilitators, family court service and access to visitation.

Donovan’s term is effective Nov. 1 through Oct. 31, 2018.

“I look forward to collaborating with others who believe as I do that these areas of law are both challenging and highly rewarding,” Donovan said in a press release.
