Allen Circuit Court names new magistrate

Trevino

– After a brief search, Allen County Circuit Court named a new magistrate Wednesday.

Andrea R. Trevino, an attorney at the law firm of Beckman Lawson, LLP, is slated to start as the circuit court magistrate Aug. 1.

Trevino takes the place of Craig Bobay, who was appointed by Gov. Mike Pence late last month to fill the Allen County Superior Court judge seat vacated by Dan Heath.

Heath moved to the Family Relations Division after the retirement of Judge Steve Sims.

“I was pleased to have such a talented pool of applicants from which to choose,” Circuit Court Judge Thomas Felts said in a written statement issued Wednesday afternoon.

“I am even more delighted to welcome Ms. Trevino to the Circuit Court bench. Her academic background, combined with her vast experience in civil and family law, makes her extremely qualified for this position. She will be a great addition to our team.”

A graduate of South Side High School and a life-long resident of Allen County, Trevino graduated from St. Joseph’s College and then the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2003. While at Beckman Lawson, Trevino focused primarily on civil litigation and family law.

The magistrate’s position pays $107,289 and includes state health benefits and the judges retirement program.

Trevino could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
