She is known in the legal community for fairness, integrity, and an impeccable work ethic.

San Diego will be well-served by having Michelle on the bench.” – Mara Elliott, San Diego City Attorney


“I have known Michelle for over fourteen years and was fortunate enough to have her as a colleague in our Family Protection Division at the San Diego DA’s office from 2010 until I retired in March 2018. During my 40 year plus career as a lawyer both back in UK and since 1991 in California I have worked alongside many attorneys. Michelle is one of the brightest and best. I have watched her in trial. I have seen her evaluate cases and have observed her as an instructor. She is not afraid to take on the toughest of assignments. Above all Michelle is honest, hard working and fair. Those qualities will serve her well for the future and I cannot think of anyone who is more suitably qualified to become a judge of the San Diego Superior Court. I am proud to endorse Michelle Ialeggio for judge.” –Paul Greenwood, Deputy San Diego District Attorney (retired), former UK Solicitor admitted to the Supreme Court of England & Wales
