Meet Michaela Weaver!
Michaela began working as an Associate Trial Attorney at KJC Law Firm, LLC in October 2019.

Michaela works as an associate with John Martin on employment law cases dealing with victims or marginalized groups. The employment law cases they face mostly include discrimination based on disability, gender, sexual orientation, sexual harassment at work, and medical. Michaela and John also deal with civil rights and federal law cases, whistleblower law suits that focus on unlawful practices in the workplace, brutality at work, and product’s liability. One of Michaela’s favorite core value from KJC Law Firm is the concept of KJCTribe because it reflects the firm’s collaborative and family atmosphere.
