Gov. Mitch Daniels today chose a Gary attorney and legal counsel for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources director for a pair of judicial openings in Lake and Marion counties.

Gary attorney Calvin Hawkins will take over as Lake Superior judge in September, replacing Judge Robert A. Pete who died in March. Admitted to the Indiana bar in 1971, Hawkins has concentrated his practice in civil and church litigation, as well as bankruptcy, probate, and family law. He earned his law degree from Howard University in Washington, D.C.

In Indianapolis, David Certo will fill a vacancy in Marion Superior Court that was created when the governor appointed Judge Cale Bradford to the Indiana Court of Appeals. Certo currently serves as counsel to the DNR director and has worked previously as general counsel and in leadership roles in state and county government. He earned his law degree from Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis.

Certo begins his new position Aug. 1, when Judge Bradford moves to the appellate court.
