Jake Lamme continues “Michelle is a valuable member of our team. She has vast professional proficiencies, she serves her clients well, and has a gift for communication that benefits both our clients and our team.”

“In addition to her impressive legal track record, Michelle is also devoted to the MCLC team culture and has displayed exceptional leadership qualities that will help us develop the next generation of attorneys. And yes, Michelle is a great attorney, but she is also a remarkable wife, mother, friend, and person. We could not be happier to welcome Michelle into our partnership,” the partners further said.

Asked to comment on her promotion to partner, Michelle stated “It’s been an incredible four years working alongside Mackenzie, Adam, Jake, and Brian. I was energized when they asked me to join their new firm and motivated to be a part of its success. They are amazing attorneys and just good people – their confidence in my legal abilities and invitation to become their partner is a tremendous honor. I’m excited to see what comes next!

“Being made a partner is not a right, but something that must be earned through hard work, impeccable client service, and leadership skills. Michelle has checked all these boxes and more and has certainly earned this promotion,” said Mackenzie Monaco.

The entire MCLC team congratulates Michelle on her promotion.
