About me

Attorney Profile

A. Michelle Fulton


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 Galveston County Bar Association, the Galveston County Family Law Bar Association, the Galveston County Mediator's Association, the Texas State Bar College, and the Texas Pro Bono College. Michelle is also a Civil and Family Mediator and serves as a court appointed CPS attorney when needed. In the community setting, Michelle is an active member of LifePoint Church. 

Married to Clayton Kilgore, they have four children between them, three boys and one girl between the ages of 21 and 33, and eight grandchildren. 

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. Having gone through a divorce of her own, Michelle also saw a deep need for parties facing divorce to learn to co-parent effectively and get through the trauma of divorce without bitterness and hostility. 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. Her faith in God gives her a unique perspective and ability to zealously advocate for her clients while utilizing alternative dispute resolution methods that reduce stress and mitigate the financial ramifications of litigation.


In her time off, Michelle enjoys spending time with her family, writing poetry, journaling, sailing, reading, watching movies, and having huge family and friend get-togethers.


Michelle was recently named as one of Houston's Top Lawyers 2013 by Houstonia Magazine/Avvo, an honor she is humbled and honored to receive.
