Get To Know Michelle In Her Own Words
"Becoming an attorney provided me with an effective tool set to help people, especially those who cannot or do not have the means to advocate for themselves. This is my passion and doing so brings me joy. The social aspect is the best part of my job, working and connecting with people. I firmly believe, whether personal or professional, the better my relationship is with an individual the better the interaction, understanding, and ability to serve their needs."
