As the firm’s Litigation Support Manager, Angel supports attorneys and the firm’s clients through the entire litigation process. This includes conducting investigations and interviews, management of electronic and documentary evidence, deposition and trial preparation, development of graphics and trial strategies, and presentation of evidence at trial. Angel oversees the firm’s electronic evidentiary presentations in arbitration hearings and in state and federal trial courts.

Because Stoll Berne handles the majority of its clients’ electronically stored information in-house, Angel also manages the firm’s e-discovery systems. She has developed significant expertise in managing electronic evidence, and speaks at seminars on the topic. Angel focuses on all types of complex litigation including breach of contract, unfair competition, trade secrets, securities fraud, consumer law, and class actions. She also has experience in employment law (both employer and employee-side), product liability and personal injury defense, and helping a corporate client manage litigation worldwide.
