Sheena M. Oxendine Hunt
As a general practice attorney, Sheena M. Oxendine Hunt covers all types of cases, from custody disputes to lower level felonies and drafting wills. She focuses her work on domestic and criminal law, and she most enjoys helping families find solutions to their legal issues. “I am blessed every day that I get to do this job,” she said. “I was a sociology major in college and my goal has always been to work with people from various backgrounds and contribute my talents to society.”
During her time at MSU Law, Sheena served as president of the Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) and as a member of the Diversity Consortium and Multicultural Executive Council with the Diversity Services Office. “As a member of NALSA and as president, I was highly involved with the Indigenous Law and Policy Center,” she said. “I was able to conduct research for a case study on tribal-state relations in Michigan that was recently published. I am so appreciative of people I met, the friends I made, and the experiences I had at the school.”
Sheena also received a certification from the Child and Family Advocacy Certificate Program, and she took courses in the family law and criminal law concentrations. “I would say that these concentrations greatly benefited me,” she said. “The certificate program required that I participate in the clinics where I was able to work with clients, draft documents for court, and work with social work students, much of which I am required to do in my role as a private practicing attorney.
