Michelle Bumgarner
SENIOR ASSOCIATE ATTORNEY

Michelle practices in the firm’s family law group. She is a graduate of University of Nevada Reno with a degree in Business Management. She graduated from the University of North Dakota school of Law in 2007 with a Juris Doctorate with Distinction. She has been licensed in California since 2009. She is also licensed in Federal and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Although she began her career working as an Insurance Defense lawyer, she soon discovered that practicing insurance defense law was less personable than she had hoped, which caused her to move into family law, an area of law about which she is extremely passionate. She enjoys assisting families with the difficult transition that comes with changes to the family structure and she understands the huge impact that this transition has on everyone involved.

Michelle also practices in Special education Law. This area of law is one of the most niche practice areas of the law. This is also one of the most satisfying areas of the law to practice in for her. Michelle believes that she has the best clients, children who need representation and protection to ensure they obtain their right to an education. Michelle also has experience in practicing administrative law and in the Federal Courts. She understands the difficulties that clients and families face when attempting to get services for their children.

When Michelle is not working, she enjoys being a mom (doing kids crafts, cooking, baking, etc.).
