Gov. Charlie Baker on Thursday nominated Hélène Kazanjian of Wellesley, chief of the trial division in Attorney General Maura Healey's office, to serve on the Massachusetts Superior Court.

"If confirmed, Attorney Kazanjian will bring to the bench nearly 30 years' experience in public service and private practice handling the types of criminal and civil cases heard by the Superior Court," Baker said in a statement.

Kazanjian was named in 1994 as assistant U.S. attorney in Portland, Maine and worked in the civil and criminal divisions there, including a stint as lead task force attorney of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, before returning to Massachusetts in 2010.

Before working in Maine, the Stanford University and Boston University School of Law graduate clerked for U.S. District Court Judge William Young, practiced from 1987 to 1991 as a civil litigation associate at the Boston firm Goodwin, Proctor & Hoar, and worked for three years in the early 1990s in Washington D.C. as an assistant U.S. attorney.

If she is confirmed by the Governor's Council, Kazanjian would fill the seat vacated Judge Patrick Brady.
