She moved to the central coast of Oregon in late 2015 and became licensed in the state in 2016. She filed retired status in New York State and New Jersey in 2017.
Upon graduating law school, Michele began work at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson (now Fried Frank) a top tier international law firm, working in their NY office as an associate in the corporate restructuring department. Her work included the due diligence entailed with public and private companies in out-of-court restructurings and workouts, “prepackaged” and prearranged bankruptcies, traditional Chapter 11 cases, and related transactions, strategy and governance issues.
Michele went on to provide counsel to residential cooperative boards of directors in landlord / tenant matters; property management; general business law; which included claims of housing discrimination; as well as work on residential and commercial real estate transaction matters.
