Michael L. Gibbons-Camp


Michael Gibbons-Camp is a senior staff attorney in the Chillicothe office.  Since joining SEOLS in 2005, he has provided direct representation of clients in a wide variety of civil matters, with an emphasis on family law and protections for victims of domestic violence.  He also focuses on preparing and maintaining pro se materials and working with courts to ensure unrepresented people have equal access to the court system.

Michael says his favorite part of his job is that it still is never routine, particularly “the spur-of-the-moment cases – custody cases, civil protection orders, and evictions that we get the day before trial and argue off the top of my head.”  He is motivated by “the fact that I make a real difference for people.”  Michael says SEOLS makes a difference for clients’ lives because, “We make life a little easier, a little more fair, and a little less terrifying.  We can’t fix all of our client’s issues, but we can listen, diagnose, and advise.”
