Angela Fowler is a native Delawarean who graduated with honors from Dover High School in 1992 before going on to graduate cum laude in 1995 from the University of Delaware with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice and a J.D. from Widener University School of Law in 1999. She was admitted to the Delaware Bar that same year and began her legal career as a civil Deputy for the Department of Justice representing the Division of Child Support Services. Angela left the Department of Justice to move to the Office of the Child Advocate in 2001 where she served as a downstate Deputy Child Advocate, representing abused and neglected children in Family Court proceedings for more than eight years. Angela left the Office of the Child Advocate to become a Hearing Officer for the Industrial Accident Board in October 2009 where she excelled until being appointed to the Family Court Bench as a Commissioner in Kent County in April 2014. Angela retired from the bench at the conclusion of her judicial term to embark on a private practice where she intends to continue working in areas of domestic relations, criminal defense, workers’ compensation and personal injury.

Angela has, throughout her professional career, also worked in a teaching capacity for Wilmington University, first in its Business Department and then in the Legal Studies Department where she has taught Ethics, Family Law, Employment Law and other law-related topics. She has been an active member of the academic community at Wilmington University, enjoying both her classroom interaction with students and the ongoing honor of working with students who have moved beyond her classroom.

In addition to a full professional schedule, Angela enjoys down time with her husband of more than 20 years, Gary, as well as her two sons, all of whom can often be found at a baseball ballpark near you.

A GEM
Angela is without a doubt one of the toughest lawyers that I have ever met. Angela took on my sisters case and explained everything to her. Angela’s many years of experience both as a judge and attorney is proven day in and out. She is thoroughly prepared, lets nothing slide by, and she is not afraid to take on a tough case. She is extremely dedicated to each of her clients and their cases. If you want to win your case, go and meet Angela - Her professionalism and litigation savvy is exceptional!!!! I would highly recommend her for your legal needs.

The Best lawyer.
Mrs. Fowler is absolutely amazing. What i would consider one of the toughest times in my life, I instantly felt at ease talking to Mrs Fowler within the first few minutes. She was full of knowledge, no matter how strange and absurd the situation, she always knew how to handle it quickly and effectively. A real fighter, the person you want and need to have in your corner. Will absolutely use again, I personally recommend to all my friends and family. I am truly so lucky to have had such a great lawyer fighting for the best interest of my child. Thank you Mrs. Fowler!!
