Attorney Purna Krishnamoorthy has never shied away from a challenge. Her undeniable zest for life and candid work ethic have made her a force to be reckoned within the legal community.
Purna attended Wayne State University for her undergraduate degree and obtained her BA with a major in Spanish and a minor in Philosophy. It was during these undergraduate years she began to develop her legal interests. In 2005, she was chosen for a prestigious internship under the then, Chief Magistrate Judge of Detroit’s 36th District Court. Here began her first courtroom experiences that would inevitably mold her into someone very passionate about safeguarding the rights of others.
After undergrad, in an effort to utilize and sharpen her Spanish skills, she backpacked through Costa Rica, participating in various volunteer projects. The months she spent doing this work fortified not only her love for travel and culture, but also her passion for strengthening and giving back to communities. Upon her return from Costa Rica, now fully fluent in the language, she applied to law school, prepared to start making serious changes in the lives around her.
While attending law school at Western Michigan University, Thomas M. Cooley law school, her interests expanded further. She gained experiences through various internships in the areas of landlord tenant law, public benefits, criminal law, state defense appeals, family law, contract law, immigration law and juvenile adjudication; amongst others.
She fine-tuned her courtroom demeanor and litigation skills; showcasing them on numerous occasions as she was chosen for advanced mock trial and national mock trial competitions. Additionally, she put these skills to use in actual courtroom settings while she interned at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, for the Violent Crimes Unit.
She is now a managing-attorney of the law firm Krishnamoorthy & Associates.
