Michelle brings a unique set of skills to criminal defense work, having served in the United States Navy, and having worked as a Special Agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigation prior to attending law school. Michelle brings the same intelligence, focus and attention to detail that lead to her selection to serve as an FBI Agent to every case she handles as an attorney.
Michelle is a 2013 graduate of the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law. While in law school, Michelle was an active participant in the Veteran’s Advocacy Clinic, where she acted as defense counsel for indigent Veterans charged with criminal misdemeanors.

Following graduation, Michelle worked as an Assistant Public Defender at the Tucson City Public Defender’s Office.
