Professional Background

Beth Pirro Cook has worked in the Massachusetts Trial Court for over twenty years, sixteen of which she held the position of Assistant Clerk Magistrate of the District Court.  She presently serves as Deputy Legal Counsel of the District Court. 

Prior to working in the court system, Cook was a litigation Associate Attorney at a small law firm. That experience, learning how to manage lawsuits in litigation, has formed the basis of how she administers cases in the court system today. She believes that cases are most effectively processed when a court balances its own technological and personnel elements with a practicing attorney's busy workload.
