“As the chapter of Tomlinson Forsell comes to a close with the retirements of Allen and Barry Tomlinson, I am pleased to be joining Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, where I can offer a deeper and wider bench here in East Greenville. Our clients can expect the same faces and receive the same services to which they have grown accustomed,” said Forsell.
A lifelong resident of Pennsburg, Montgomery County, Forsell focuses her practice primarily on estate planning and administration. The former Solicitor to the Borough of East Greenville, she is the immediate past president of the Bar Association of Lehigh County, an American Bar Association Fellow, Program Chair for the Villanova Law Inn of Court, and a Montgomery County Arbitrator. She is active in her community, serving on numerous boards including Frederick Living, a Mennonite Health Services not-for-profit continuing care retirement community; The Gulack Foundation; and the Upper Perkiomen YMCA. Forsell also teaches law courses at Cedar Crest College in Allentown. She will continue her practice in her current office location in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, formerly the offices of Tomlinson Forsell.
“Michelle’s practice will complement and expand the Estate Planning & Administration practice we have in our office in Allentown and has the community focus that we value at NMM,” said Matthew R. Sorrentino, Chairman of Norris McLaughlin & Marcus.
Forsell earned her B.A. from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 1999, her J.D. from Villanova University School of Law in 2003, and her M.A. from Temple University in 2006. She is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania; the U.S. District Court, Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania; the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals; and the U.S. Supreme Court.
