Maggie McMichael joined Watson Spence in August 2017, after graduating cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law. She was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 2017. As an associate attorney at Watson Spence, Maggie primarily practices civil litigation, including medical malpractice and employment law matters.
Prior to working for Watson Spence, Maggie completed an internship with the Gwinnett County Law Department and gained practical experience while participating in several clinical programs during law school, including the UGA Law Business Law Clinic and Family Violence Clinic.
Through these experiences, Maggie worked on a wide variety of matters, ranging from governmental issues to corporate law and intellectual property. During law school, Maggie was the Senior Managing Editor of the Georgia Law Review. In addition to her service on the journal’s Executive Board, she published a student note about state and federal laws affecting consumers’ rights in the wake of cybersecurity breaches. Maggie was also an active member of the Christian Legal Society and Federalist Society at Georgia Law.
A proud “Double Dawg,” Maggie also earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Science in Consumer Economics in 2013. While completing her undergraduate studies, Maggie was involved in Baptist Collegiate Ministries, the student chapter of the National Association of Homebuilders, and competed in intramural athletics.
Outside of work, Maggie loves cheering on the Dawgs, trying new recipes and restaurants, and exercising. Maggie is originally from Douglasville, Georgia, but is now happy to call Albany her home and looks forward to getting involved in the Albany community.
