Kirk J. Angel

About me

I have handled employment law matters since 1997 including 3 years as an EEOC Trial Attorney.  I represent employees North Carolina and Tennessee in all aspects of employment law.  I also represent NC state employees in proceedings before the OAH. I served for 4 years on the Corporate Board of Directors for the Cannon Memorial YMCA and currently serve on the Board of Managers for the Harrisburg Family YMCA.  In my spare time, I enjoy working out and spending time with my family.

    Kirk is a terrific lawyer at what he does. If I personally needed a lawyer for employment issues, Kirk is the very first attorney I would call, and actually have called him on numerous occasions. He is smart, personable, and knows what he's doing. I have always been impressed with his ability to handle his cases and simply to "do the right thing."
