Her representation is defined by an attitude of leaving no stone unturned, tenaciously pursuing all angles of an individual’s case. Angela’s clients feel they are listened to and not just a “settlement” or “claim” to be negotiated.
Angela gravitated to personal injury law as it was a natural fit for her as an advocate for the underdog. She was always drawn to helping professions and is especially passionate about helping children with brain injuries or other significant injuries that result in disabilities. Angela’s volunteer work within the school system is important to her work as an attorney who often fights for increased assistance and accommodations for children with IEPs. She is inspired by her experiences working with those with serious injuries and disabilities, both as an attorney and advocate for her clients, and as a volunteer and member of organizations designed to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities.
