About Chelsie D’Malta Thurmond

Chelsie D’Malta Thurmond transplanted to California from New Orleans, Louisiana over a decade ago. Chelsie graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and minors in Psychology and Peace and Justice Studies from the University of San Diego. Upon graduation, she was awarded the “Spirit of Public Sociology” Award and was also inducted into USD’s prestigious Alcala 100 Club, nominated by university staff and administration as an outstanding key leader in the USD community. During her undergraduate career, Chelsie coordinated a volunteer program at the local juvenile hall.  It is through her experiences she fostered with incarcerated youth where she discovered her passion for criminal defense and advocating for those in need of a strong ally as they face the taxing reality of the criminal justice system.

After Chelsie graduated from the University of San Diego, she went on to attend the University of San Francisco School of Law. Chelsie participated in USF’s Criminal and Juvenile Justice Clinic and clerked at the Alameda County Public Defender’s Office, in the former Hayward Branch Office, as well as the Juvenile Unit in San Leandro.  She also worked as a criminal defense law clerk assisting in the defense of several high profile cases. While awaiting her bar results, Chelsie volunteered at the Santa Clara Office of the Public Defender’s Juvenile Team.

Most recently, Chelsie worked as a Deputy Public Defender for the Mendocino County Office of the Public Defender, where she proved to be an excellent trial attorney.  In her time there, Chelsie handled a broad spectrum of cases. She was often recognized by judges, colleagues, and courtroom staff for her diligence, compassion, and dedication to clients.
