Michelle Thompson joined Levin & Perconti as a law clerk in August 2016 and was named an associate attorney in November 2016. Michelle earned her law degree from DePaul University College of Law in May 2016. While in law school, she was a member of the Appellate Moot Court Society and served as the community service committee chairperson for the Student Bar Association. Her achievements during her time at DePaul include receiving the CALI Award for Excellence in Legal Writing and Research and being named on the Dean’s List in Fall 2013 and Spring 2014. She also enjoyed working as a teaching assistant for first-year law students in a legal writing and research course.

Additionally, Michelle was a law clerk for a prominent plaintiff’s personal injury firm where she worked with many clients who suffered from catastrophic injuries. Michelle says, “From the inception of litigation through resolution, I work diligently to ensure my clients’ voices are heard throughout the judicial process.”
