Overview

Angela is a client-focused attorney who splits her time between commercial litigation and working to resolve insurance coverage disputes.

While she attempts to resolve litigation before it goes to trial, Angela particularly thrives in the courtroom. She has obtained victories for clients at all levels of litigation, including motion hearings, summary judgment, motions to dismiss and appeals. Her experience involves premise liability, breach of contract, collections, commercial evictions and more. She understands how stressful court can be for a client, and she serves as both a guide and an advocate so that clients can focus on their business.

In the insurance arena, she focuses on two key areas of the industry – commercial general liability (CGL) and environmental insurance. Environmental insurance is especially important because it can involve significant exposure claims that pose extreme risks to the insurance company. She is actively involved after a claim has been made under a client’s Environmental Pollution Liability policy for coverage. For CGL policies, Angela counsels insurance company clients regarding coverage for claims and litigates coverage disputes on the side of the insurance company.

Angela enjoys pro bono work, especially on civil rights cases, an interest she developed through volunteer work during law school. Together with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, she also co-leads a pro bono guardianship clinic that helps provide equal access to the often-convoluted guardianship process. She also leads Husch Blackwell’s LGBTQ affinity group as part of the firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts.
