Russ Hunt, Sr. said of the addition to the firm, "I am delighted that Michelle has joined with me in the practice of criminal defense. She is extremely bright, and one of the hardest working attorneys I have ever worked with. She and I have worked together for the past year on several very serious cases, including capital murder, murder, aggravated sexual assault, and kidnapping. We have tried three cases to a jury verdict. I admire her and her work ethic."
