Gov. Jack Markell announced the nomination of Felice Glennon Kerr to serve on the Family Court of the State of Delaware. If confirmed by the Delaware Senate, Kerr will fill the vacancy left by Judge Michael Newell, who was confirmed and sworn in Wednesday as Chief Judge of the Family Court.
“Felice Kerr is an accomplished and well-respected family law attorney who has more than two decades of experience practicing family law,” said Markell. “If she is confirmed by the Senate, I believe she will serve our state well as a Family Court judge.”
Kerr currently serves as the managing partner of the Delaware office of MacElree Harvey. She maintains a active family law practice, that includes divorce cases, property division, alimony, custody, visitation, child support, and domestic violence. She also maintains an alternative dispute resolution practice.
Kerr, 50, received a Bachelor of Arts from Villanova University in 1986. She earned her law degree at Suffolk University Law School in 1989 and was admitted to the Delaware Bar in 1990. She resides with her family in Wilmington.
