Background: Angel Base is a sole practitioner in Spokane, WA, practicing primarily in family law and general practice. Before attending law school, Angel obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Social Work at Walla Walla University and subsequently worked in child counseling and juvenile detention. Angel has an extensive history with public service, serving in paid and unpaid public service roles with Red Cross, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, DSHS Child and Family Services, Washington Children’s Home Society, youth service clubs, and school boards at the elementary and secondary levels. Before graduating from Gonzaga University School of Law, Angel worked at University Legal Assistance and served as a Rule 9 Legal Intern with the Washington Attorney General’s Office. Prior to licensure as an attorney in Washington, Angel began serving as a Guardian Ad Litem in Spokane County under Title 26, representing the best interests of children in family law matters. Currently, in addition to serving as Assistant Director of a local youth service club and volunteering with a local school, Angel is active with the Volunteer Lawyer’s Program (VLP) in Spokane and is an active member of the Spokane County Bar Association’s CLE Committee, the Family Law Section, the Young Lawyer’s Division, and the Solo and Small Practice Section as Chair. At the state level, Angel is a member of the Washington State Bar Association's Solo and Small Practice Section Executive Committee. In her spare time, Angel enjoys all manner of outdoor recreation and is an active member of a local running club. Angel is glad to call Spokane home, and looks forward to continued involvement in the community at the local and statewide levels.


 


Note: As required by the Washington Rule of Professional Conduct 7.4(d)(3), this notice is provided to inform readers "that the Supreme Court of Washington does not recognize certification of specialties in the practice of law and [a] certificate, award, or recognition is not a requirement to practice law in the state of Washington." An attorney practicing in Washington is required only to be admitted to practice in Washington; an Avvo rating may provide a piece of information to consumers but it is not recognized by the Supreme Court of Washington as a certification of specialty.
