Great work resolving contract dispute.
Ms. Trapp did a great job helping me resolve a contract dispute. She fought for my rights, informed me of appropriate steps and action, and helped me resolve the contract dispute in a timely and helpful manner. Ms. Trapp will work for you, and help you get the resolution that you need.

Will Hire Again!
Angela and her team are ready and willing to help. They will be honest and straightforward with their client. Their experience and knowledge in the courtroom is elite. Angela helped me with a child custody case. I have worked with Angela, Zach, and Brandie. All three are well versed in the cases and ready to assist each other.

I highly recommend Angela Trapp, be smart hire her.
I am very pleased with my entire experience with this firm. Lawyers don't make miracles, they work with the law. This firm's expertise has made me smarter when dealing with legal issues. Therefore; I know how to gauge my expectations regarding outcomes. If you are willing to learn and take advice this firm will do a fantastic job. However; if you just want your way (miracles), you should take a moment think before considering legal outcomes. Always remember TV law isn't real world law. They are very professional and reasonable. I have recommended them to my friends and will recommend them in the future. I would like to also add that they saved me a lot of money. I honestly wish you the best with your legal issues.

Brandie David and Trapp Law LLC
Brandie Davis with Trapp Law LLC did more than what I could have ever expected from any attorney with my case. She listened to me and did everything she could for me to get my children back. She was so knowledgeable, professional, and knew exactly what to ask and how to direct her questions to make our case and she did just that. I look forward to working more with her as she truly cares for her clients and does an outstanding job both in and out of court!!! Thank you Brandie and Trapp Law LLC for all you do!

Caring, knowledgeable and professional
My husband and I worked with Angela, Peter and Brandie. We had a custody case in Indiana but we live in another state. They all were very thorough and knowledgeable. We recommend Trapp Law very highly. God bless them.

Great Consultation
Called Angela about an issue. She took time to figure out the situation and issues involved and gave me several suggestions. I really appreciated the fact she picked up the phone versus having me to into voice mail!

Great Divorce Attorney
Trapp Law helped me navigate a nasty divorce. They were responsive, prompt, knowledgeable, and honest. Angela provided advice about what kind of settlement and child custody was realistic, and she worked with me to achieve the best possible outcome. She clearly explained each potential legal strategy, so I could make the most informed decisions. Angela made a stressful situation as painless as possible.

Great Lawyer
Angela provided excellent legal counsel for my divorce. She responded promptly to all emails and phone calls. She provided excellent legal advice regarding separating joint finances and establishing custody. She helped me achieve a quick resolution and stay out of court.

Expungement in two counties
I went and consulted with one of Trapp laws attorneys, Zach and about my problems and what I needed done in order to put my life back together literally and he listened and told me he could get it done. I was very impressed with him so I hired him. Much to my delight Zach and his team got both my cases expunged in two different counties in a quick and timely fashion. I am now back in the saddle going forward with my life because of them. I would recommend them to anyone anytime.

Very professional
We hired Ms. Trapp last year for my boyfriends case and she was very helpful and professional. With her hard work she was able to solve his case and get him the best deal. I would definitively recommend her and hire her again if I need help in anther case.

Outstanding Results
The Trapp firm kept me informed during my entire case and put in the extra effort to ensure I'd win my case. I highly recommend the Trapp law firm.

STOP! Here is your lawyer.
It is comforting to walk in a courtroom secure in the knowledge that the smartest person in the room is on your side. She never once ducked an issue, thought, concern, idea, etc. I threw her way. Categorically addressed all things I brought up. Attacked any issue we had with the tenacity of a pitbull. Was very knowledgeable about my rights in any given situation that was brought up and did her utmost to protect them. Conscientious, smart, and thorough. Made me feel I had an active part in every phase of the proceedings. Handled a multifaceted case (criminal, civil, forfeiture, traffic) and had me smelling like roses with every battle we fought. More than fair treatment money I ever spent.

Highly recommended, great representation
Angela worked diligently on a tough and frustrating case to get the best possible out come. She believed in our case and worked with us every step of the way and never gave up. She kept us informed and involved every step of the way. Highly recommended!

Great representation!
Angela Trapp is an excellent attorney. She has represented my family and myself over the past few years. She has handled real estate matters for my family business, including preparing leases, evictions, and land contracts. Angela also handled my sister's divorce, and my parents' estate planning. Both were stressful processes for my family, but Angela's legal advice helped put both my sister and my parents at ease by giving them clear options, and potential outcomes, as they worked through the legal process. Angela has always been responsive to the needs of her clients, she has always honest with us about our expectations and potential outcomes if we had to go to Court, and she was always responsive to our inquiries. I highly recommend her to anyone needing help with these areas of the law.

Ms. Trapp helped me get my divorce and custody of my son. She helped keep him from going to his fathers and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Angela.

Divorce nightmare!
This was the most traumatic time in my life. After 27 years of marriage I was in total shock when my, now ex, husband delivered the blow. Not having had a lot of experience with lawyers I went to the Internet and found Angela Trapp. She was wonderful. Angela listened sympathetically but stayed professional. Throughout the process she always kept me up to date and totally informed. I thought my world had ended but Angela made sure that didn't happen. She fought hard for me and got me a very good settlement. I couldn't have been more pleased and will use Trapp Law in the future should a need arise!

I can drive thanks to Angie!
I hired Angie to represent me with my case in December of 2012. I was hesitant at first because my DUI case had big consequences if I was convicted. I met with her the same day I called her office. She talked to me like she was a friend of mine, nothing like how I thought an attorney would act. She talked to me in plain terms and was very up front about the situation and possible outcomes. Anytime I needed her, I never had to wait very long to hear from her. She ended up doing a fantastic job, and even helped me reschedule my court appointment when I needed her to because my Son was sick! The case was over so quick and she helped me out so much. In the end, I'm very thankful that I picked Angie to represent me and wouldn't hesitate to hire her again. I just hope I never have to again.

We made an appointment with Ms. Trapp and met with her. We explained our case and paid her the retainer. She informed us that she billed each month, but this never happened. When we would call into her office, we were always told she would call us back. This would rarely happen. We tried making another appointment to see her, and were told she would call us. We rarely were able to meet with her again. She did not setup an appointment to discuss our case before the court hearing about what we should expect in the court room. We decided to terminate Ms. Trapp and find a new attorney. We sent a certified letter with receipt requested informing her of a date and time that we would be picking up our personal papers and files. We received a signed confirmation, but when we went to her office she was not available nor did we get our papers and files. It has been over ten months, and we have yet to receive our papers and files.
