Michelle McGehee, Esq.
Michelle Dupin McGehee is a lifelong Greater Cincinnati resident and passionate advocate for immigrants, refugees, and students. As Program Manager, Michelle coordinates volunteers, students, and green card and citizenship clinics, and also assists families with refugee green cards, refugee travel documents, and citizenship applications.
Michelle is a graduate of Miami University and received her J.D. from Chase College of Law. She began her career with Gerner & Kearns Co., L.P.A. practicing real estate law but very quickly turned her attention toward advocacy as a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) through ProKids. Her passion for children grew as she mentored junior high and high school students through her church, where she also served as a Volunteer Coordinator.
Michelle has taught undergraduate courses in business law, real estate law, and paralegal studies at the University of Cincinnati. Michelle’s interest in immigration was sparked by a biography that set her on a path to seek a better understanding of the immigration process and opportunities to work with immigrants and refugees. She has taught ESL classes, formed teams to furnish apartments for newly arrived families, organized baby item collections for new mothers, transported immigrants to medical and dental appointments, supplied meals, assisted with scholarship applications and financial aid, and served as a parent advisor to high school students that started a tutoring program for immigrants and refugees, before joining IRLC.
