Michele A. McKenzie
First Assistant

Stanford University, School of Law, J.D
Smith College, B.A.

Michele McKenzie came to Federal Defenders as a trial attorney in 2000. She chose this office for its national reputation of excellence as well as the aggressive and effective measures taken by its attorneys to defend the rights of the indigent accused. Michele received her own training as a trial and appellate attorney through Federal Defenders' extensive in-house programs.

As a member of both the "New Attorney Training Committee" and the "All Attorney Training Committee," Michele is now actively involved in keeping Federal Defenders the best training office in the country. She is responsible for ensuring that our attorneys are aware of most recent developments in the law. Michele works hard to provide our attorneys insight on the ever-changing landscape of federal court practice with the hope that this knowledge will allow each of us to provide the most comprehensive defense to our clients.

Michele was promoted to Supervisory Attorney/Trial Team Leader in 2004. In addition to maintaining her own trial and appellate caseload, she collaborates with newer attorneys on their cases. In her role as Trial Team Leader, Michele has the opportunity to see the extensive training and inherent passion in our attorneys combine to result in superior representation of each Federal Defender client
