About me

Patrick Angel grew up in and around Bossier City, Louisiana
and enlisted in the US Marine Corps after graduating high school. 
Patrick rose through the enlisted ranks quickly and was an infantry
Sergeant, leading Marines into combat, by the time the first Gulf War
broke out in August of 1990.  Then Sergeant Angel was a member of the Marine Corps' Task Force Ripper which served as the tip of the spear for offensive operations of the First Marine Division.

After being honorably discharged from the military after an event
filled six year enlistment, Patrick was accepted to the University of
California at Berkeley, where he earned his Bachelor's degree before
attending law school in Portland Oregon.  While at Lewis and Clark Law
School Patrick revealed an early talent for courtroom excellence by
winning the honor of Best Oral Advocate during the traditional first
year Moot Court Competition.

He was also one of very few law students certified by the State of
Oregon to try criminal cases for the Multnomah County District
Attorney's Office while still in law school.  Patrick tried numerous criminal cases to jury verdict while working in the District Attorney's office in 2001.

After interning in the District Attorney's office as a law student,
Patrick's legal career has always focused on representing Oregonians
from all over the State who have been exploited or injured by the
wrongdoing of others.  He takes only a small number of new cases each
year and personally handles every aspect of each client's case from the
first meeting to the end of trial.  Patrick has extensive courtroom
experience having prevailed in countless hard fought motions of every
type and kind, he's handled numerous complex legal cases, and has logged
hundreds of hours in intensive depositions.  Patrick is experienced
with every aspect of preparing a client's civil case for trial.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Reprimand
    issued in OR, 2008


    This means the lawyer did something wrong but the bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Patrick’s comment: “In 2006 a mistake was made in a client's case regarding a failure to generate a particular required fee contract. Instead, a different improper fee contract was drafted by mistake. Upon being made aware of the mistake, the client's retainer was immediately refunded, I accepted complete responsibility for the mistake and voluntarily agreed to the reprimand, one of the lowest forms of bar discipline. Please contact Angel Law PC to discuss any other questions you may have about this reprimand.”
