Professional Experience

Michelle has over a decade of family law experience. She joined SK&H in 2012. In 2014, she was named the Managing Attorney for SW Washington, and in 2015 she was elected as a Shareholder.

Michelle understands the emotional difficulties inherent in the divorce process and believes that part of her job is to eliminate your anxiety about the unknown and explain the possible outcomes, as well as the law. Michelle is there to help you stay informed, prepared and ready to address the important legal issues you face.

Her wealth of experience in both family and criminal law allows Michelle to give her clients the tools they need to make informed and intelligent decisions about their future and the future of their families. Michelle prides herself on negotiating settlements for her clients in difficult situations and spends the time to ensure that her clients stay focused on the important legal issues while helping them navigate through an emotionally draining time in their lives. “I am committed to making sure each client is heard, prepared and protected,” she said.

Michelle is proud to have represented military service members and their spouses across Oregon and Washington. Her experience working for military families encompasses all family law issues.

After graduating from Lewis & Clark Law School, Michelle started a solo practice where she focused exclusively on family law for three years. During this time she developed solid skills in the areas of discovery, settlement negotiations, international and interstate issues, and litigation. In 2006 Michelle started at the St. Andrew Legal Clinic (SALC), where she provided legal assistance to those in our community with limited financial resources. Less than a year after going to work for SALC, she was promoted to branch manager. In that capacity, she managed five attorneys and four staff in addition to maintaining a full-time case load.
