Judge Michelle Thomason

Judge Thomason is the Presiding District Judge in Baldwin County, and is in her 12th year on the bench.She is a candidate for the position currently held by Judge Craig Pittman who is retiring, and who has endorsed her as his replacement. Although she is a District Judge by title, she is a Circuit Judge by special appointment, as the majority of her caseload involves family court cases. Additionally, she handles other criminal and civil cases, and presides over the Baldwin County Veterans Court, which she founded in February of 2014.

Prior to becoming a judge, she was a partner in the law firm of Pearson, Cummins & Hart, where she practiced civil defense litigation as well as family law for over eleven years before taking the bench.
