Estate Planning Attorney Profile
Angela earned her law degree from Rutgers University-The State University of New Jersey, School of Law in 2001. She has been a member in good standing of the Maryland Bar since 2005.
Before opening her own estate planning practice, Angela practiced in the area of public interest law. Specifically, she began her legal career working as a staff attorney for a firm that represented children alleged to be abused or neglected in CINA (Children In Need of Assistance) cases in Baltimore City. A large part of her responsibilities entailed traveling to visit her young clients in their educational settings or their residential placements.
Later, she worked for a small law firm in Baltimore City that practiced in the area of Public Guardianship. In public guardianship cases, when there are no family members, friends or loved ones to serve as guardian, the circuit court appoints a volunteer guardian to act as a substitute decision-maker if a judge determines a person’s ability to make health and safety decisions for themselves is significantly impaired by disease, accident or disability. As a result, many of the firm’s clients were vulnerable adults and Angela found herself again visiting clients wherever they happened to be; she interviewed clients in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and their residences. She interviewed family members or other interested parties in their homes, offices, favorite cafés or coffee shops; just about anywhere that afforded her clients and others involved in the case their privacy and peace of mind.
It was around this time that the seed was planted: if children and vulnerable adults could receive confidential legal services outside of a traditional law office and outside of normal business hours, why shouldn’t people seeking other types of legal services be able to meet a lawyer face-to-face at their convenience and in a setting where they feel most comfortable? And, thus, the mobile estate planning business concept was born.
In addition to running her mobile estate planning business, Angela enjoys reading, organic baking and candy making, actively watching Jeopardy! along with her husband, and attending dance classes whenever possible. Lovers of the outdoors, Angela and her husband, Chris, reside on a small farm in Carroll County, Maryland with a menagerie of rescue animals including six sheep, one horse, two cats, and one spoiled dog. They are long time parishioners of St. Bartholomew’s Roman Catholic Church in Manchester.
