About Me

Angela Evans is a former prosecutor who loves trial work as much as she respects small businesses. Angela began her own law firm because she strongly believes that zealous legal representation can be cost-effective when standard business processes merge with sound legal competence. Angela’s compassion and interest in family law matters is derived from her own personal experiences in family law as well as her professional endeavors in this practice area.
