Attorney Profile

Michele’s experience encompasses practicing in both the government sector and the private sector. She has represented clients in all aspects of litigation including corporate, partnership and commercial matters. Michele specializes in writing briefs in complex cases—both at the trial court and appellate levels—which include derivative and class actions, appraisal actions, disputes over control of corporate boards of directors, and books and records actions. She also advises corporations through the dissolution process provided for by the Delaware General Corporation Law, an area in which Michele gained landmark experience while assisting the guardian ad litem appointed to represent the interests of future claimants in Delaware’s first major case involving the then newly revised corporate dissolution statute.

From 1995 to 1997, Michele left private practice to serve as a Deputy Attorney General with the State of Delaware Department of Justice where she represented various professional regulatory boards and the Office of State Personnel.

Michele served as the law clerk to the Honorable Susan C. Del Pesco in the Delaware Superior Court from 1988-1989
