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.

Featured Endorsement

It is with great confidence and without reservation that I endorse Judge Michelle Thomason for election to the Alabama Court of Civil appeals. I know her to have the Christian and conservative values that Alabama citizens cherish, and I am certain that she believes in the rule of law which is so important in our system of justice.  Based upon my experience as an attorney for twenty-four years and and Alabama Circuit Judge for fourteen years, I know Judge Thomason is very qualified in her experience for this judgeship.  She has the character to give the citizens of Alabama judgment with integrity on our Court of Civil Appeals.  My confidence in endorsing Judge Thomason is supported in her endorsement by Judge Craig Pittman who I know personally and for whom I have the utmost respect both personally and professionally.
