Phelan named next chief deputy clerk of court
Clerk of Court James R. Starr said Phelan will join the clerk's office staff in May.
She will formally succeed Dan Lynch as chief deputy when Lynch becomes clerk of court upon Starr's retirement in January 2014.
Starr, who announced the appointment, said Phelan is a 1993 cum laude graduate of Creighton University School of Law and began her legal career as clerk to a Nebraska Supreme Court Justice.
She was a bankruptcy and civil business litigator for 12 years at the New Hampshire firm of Orr & Reno and later did trial and appellate work for the New Hampshire Public Defender's Office for more than five years.
Phelan also served on Bankruptcy and District courts committees.
