Attorney A. Michelle Fulton has been representing clients for two decades in all aspects of family law in the Harris and Galveston county areas in Southeast Texas. Our areas of practice include divorce, name changes, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, property settlements, spousal maintenance, spousal abuse, adoption, child abuse, child support and child custody. If you need help with a family-related legal issue, our firm is qualified and dedicated to providing compassionate and affordable representation, utilizing an approach that empowers the client to make informed decisions.
Born in West Monroe, Louisiana and raised in Bossier City, Louisiana, Michelle was educated at Parkway High School in Bossier City, where she graduated in 1987. She went on to attend Kansas State University, where she received a BA in English in 1997. While at KSU, she was active in Student Government and a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society. She was also honored in the Who’s Who Among Colleges and Universities.
In 2000, Michelle served as a judicial intern under Justice Tim Taft at the First Circuit Court of Appeals. She was also a member of the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity. She attended Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law, where she graduated cum laude in 2001.
Michelle is currently a member of the Texas State Bar, the Bay Area Bar Association, the Galveston County Bar Association, the Texas State Bar College, the Pro Bono College, the Galveston County Family Law Bar Association, and the Galveston Mediator’s Association. Michelle is also a Certified Mediator. In the community setting, Michelle is an active member of Bridgeway Fellowship Church, a Co-Coordinator of the Women’s Ministry, and the CARE Team Coordinator.
Married to Clayton Kilgore, they have four children, three boys and one girl between the ages of 36 and 41, twelve grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
Michelle’s own personal tragedies fueled her desire to become an attorney and help families avoid the mistakes that she saw firsthand- mistakes which could have been avoided with proper planning. With a rise in the number of incidents of stroke and other ailments that render one incapable of making their own decisions, Michelle realized that planning for incapacity was just as important as planning for disposing of one’s property upon death. Her personal experiences have made her more approachable, more sympathetic, and more dedicated to improving the quality of life for as many people as she can.
In her time off, Michelle enjoys writing poetry, volunteering at her children’s schools, watching her children participate in sports, sailing, reading, and having huge family and friend get-togethers.
