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.
Get To Know Judge Thomason
Judge Michelle Thomason (formerly Michelle Hart) graduated from Mobile College (now the University of Mobile) with a Bachelor of Science in Business in 1992, and was a banker for over ten years before she decided to change her career to the law. She received her Juris Doctor from Tulane Law School and was admitted to the Bar in 1995. 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.
I wholeheartedly support Judge Michelle Thomason for Place 1, Alabama Court of Civil Appeals. She is an experienced attorney with the additional qualification of service as a District Court and Circuit Court Judge for 12 years. I admire her ability, character and integrity.
