Michelle V. Evenson has a strong desire to fight for those in need. Prior to graduating from Thomas Jefferson School of Law, magna cum laude, Michelle was awarded the Wiley W. Manuel Certificate for Pro Bono Legal Services as well as Pro Bono Honors from Thomas Jefferson for her volunteer work with Legal Aide Society of San Diego
Michelle V. Evenson grew up in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area of Minnesota. She is a proud alumna of St. Cloud State University, where she obtained two bachelors degrees: a BA in Mass Communications and a BS in Education. Before becoming an attorney, she taught Communications, English literature, and composition. Her favorite local charity is the Human Rights Campaign of San Diego, with whom she volunteers and enjoys engaging in other philanthropic activities along side her family.
Michelle is licensed to practice law in California, and she was recently recommended for admission to the Minnesota State Bar. Michelle clerked for both the San Diego County Public Defender and the San Diego County District Attorney; has worked with homeless veterans through the Veterans Clinic at Thomas Jefferson, and she was an Intellectual Property Law Fellow.
Michelle is a die-hard Minnesota Vikings fan, and hope they can make another Super Bowl just once before she dies. She also enjoys going to the beach and downhill skiing, and watching the SCSU Husky Hockey Team.
