Michele Schamberger is a proud mother of three children. When she's not working, she enjoys traveling, creating new friendships and spending time with her family.
Although Michele isn't an attorney, she has over 18 years experience in the legal world. In 2006, she obtained her BA in Legal Studies/Pre-Law from the University of West Florida.
In our Gainesville trial, we have gotten to know a trial logistics coordinator named Michele Schamberger. She calls her business 'Plaintiffs' Gambit'. She is terrific. She arranges rooms, meals (at hotel and court), supplies, laundry, newspapers, cars, pick ups and deliveries. She travels. Definitely worth considering to run a trial site anywhere.

Over the past 17 months, I have had the pleasure of working with Michele (aka Plaintiffs’ Gambit) on numerous large trials. Michele is a problem solver and able to multitask effortlessly. I highly recommend her and assure any team that she’s a true asset.
Michele, the owner and founder of Plaintiffs' Gambit, is the best that ever did it. She handled all the logistics during our trial in Pensacola...She was available 24/7 for anything our team could need. Her kind and warm demeanor along with her impeccable work ethic make Plaintiffs' Gambit a must have during trials. I certainly cannot sing her enough praise.
