In order to provide our clients with the highest level of service, BHBC continues to add to its team of professionals.
BHBC is pleased to announce that Michelle Nesbett has joined our ranks. Michelle is a well-respected attorney, who focuses her practice on federal white collar criminal defense. She also handles civil cases, including professional negligence and complex litigation. She received her law degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 2006. After working as a prosecutor, she transitioned into private practice. In 2019, she was awarded the designation of “Super Lawyer,” which recognizes those lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Michelle also participates in her community, including serving as the Chair of the Board of Directors for Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center. Michelle is a valuable addition to the Firm.
BHBC is also proud to welcome George Pitts, who expands the firm’s bankruptcy department to three lawyers. George has practiced in the areas of bankruptcy and financial litigation for more than 30 years, building up remarkable tenure at some of the most prestigious firms in Washington, D.C. He counsels individual business persons encountering financial difficulties as well as companies, both as creditor and debtor. The firm’s bankruptcy lawyers (George, Austin Barron, and Jim Lister) all have substantial big law firm bankruptcy experience. George resides in the Firm’s D.C. office and will assist the Firm’s Anchorage office as well as attend to his practice, which is national in scope with cases all over the country.
BHBC also is adding to its ranks of more junior professionals. Nicole Bayne has joined the Washington, D.C. office as a first-year associate following graduation from George Washington University’s law school. She will assist the Firm’s regulatory and regulatory litigation practices including small business and natural resources. She is particularly interested in the field of water rights law.

Ella received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; she received an Associate of Applied Science degree from the College of Southern Nevada; and she studied law at California Western School of Law in San Diego. She has worked as a paralegal in Las Vegas since 2010, but recently relocated to Alaska, and is now a valuable member of the Firm.
These professionals join a team of very accomplished lawyers. Michelle, George, Nicole, and Ella will make sure that BHBC continues to offer exceptional legal services to our clients. We welcome them all to the team.
