Why Michelle

Upon her Albany Law School graduation, Michelle received the Isabelle Redman Prize, an award given to the graduating student who demonstrated the qualities personified by Ms. Redman: courage, perseverance, and graciousness in confronting extraordinary challenges.  Michelle’s clients find these traits to be advantageous in their legal matters – she is bold, eager and resolute, yet civil and compassionate. 

Michelle spent many years practicing plaintiff’s litigation, and having looked at the law from both sides, she is able to offer her clients a unique perspective and powerful representation.  Michelle’s clients find her prepared, committed, and driven to advance their cases with a comprehensive strategy for a successful outcome.

When not practicing law, Michelle spends her time running, hiking, and with her family. She volunteers with non-profit organizations including the Ronald McDonald House and the National MPS Society, in honor and memory of her son, LB.
