Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has appointed Robert Jamo as Judge for the 95A District Court in Menominee County. 

Robert J. Jamo is the city attorney for the City of Menominee, where he has lived since 1985, and served as interim city manager twice during his tenure, which began in January 2000. He began his legal career in Menominee and Marinette where he focused on family law, disability cases, and real estate transactions. His experience also includes insurance defense, criminal defense work, and probate court matters both as appointed counsel and retained counsel.   

This appointment was made to fill a partial term, which expires at twelve o’clock noon on January 1, 2021, after Judge Jeffrey G. Barstow stepped down effective April 1. If Jamo wishes to seek a full six-year term he would be required to run for reelection in November of 2020.
