Christy L. Michaelson

Christy concentrates her practice in litigation providing guidance and easing the burden of costly litigation for her clients in both state and federal courts.

Christy is an Associate Attorney at Ancel, Glink, P.C. and her practice involves representing and defending both municipalities and private clients in a wide array of legal issues, including personal injury, wrongful death, employment decisions, sexual abuse issues, §1983 claims and subrogation claims. 

She also has experience prosecuting local ordinances, mediation, settlement conferences, arguing substantive motions in both state and federal court as well as state and federal court trial experience, including second chairing at trial representing the Village of Algonquin in Shirleen Kamysz v. Village of Algonquin, a negligence action involving a slip and fall on a Village sidewalk, and Bell v. Sellers, et al., a federal lawsuit alleging false arrest. 

Christy regularly contributes to the litigation group’s quarterly newsletter, Ancel Glink Defense E-News, which provides updates on the latest court decisions and pending legislation that may affect our clients. In addition, Christy contributes to Ancel Glink’s local government blog, Municipal Minute, which provides daily updates on cases, laws and other important information relevant to local governments. She is also a producer of Ancel Glink’s Quorum Forum Podcast. 

Christy grew up in St. Charles and is committed her career to Illinois local government.
