Families are Innocent Beyond A Reasonable Doubt It took attorney Michelle MacDonald 25 years to recognize the way attorneys and courts break up families is beyond-a reasonable-doubt objectionable.Michelle and her clients started “Family Innocence”, a non-profit dedicated to eliminating court as an option for families. Michelle believes family cases are private, files should be sealed, and that families should invite court jurisdiction only when absolutely necessary. Michelle practices law for MacDonald Law Firm, LLC, and mediates for Golden Rule Mediation. She is divorced and remarried to Tom Shimota, and has 2 children, 2 step children.
