Micheal L. Littlejohn Jr.


Born on the West Side of Charlotte, Micheal L. Littlejohn Jr. attended Ashley Park Elementary before relocating with his family to South Carolina. He graduated from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA, where he majored in political science. He later graduated from the Charlotte School of Law, attaining pro bono honors. During law school, Micheal received Dean’s List honors and was awarded the inaugural Julius L. Chambers Scholarship by the John S. Leary Association of Black Lawyers.
