An attorney with Katz Korin Cunningham, Angela always knew that she wanted to practice law. In high school, Angela participated in a career shadowing program where she spent a few weeks at her local prosecutor’s office. This was her first glimpse at a legal career. In college, Angela participated in Butler’s pre-law society attending career panels and visiting law schools. Once time for law school finally rolled around, Angela knew she wanted to stay in Indianapolis, a city she had grown to love. Angela graduated from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of law where she was a member of the Deans Tutorial Society and the Evening Vice-President of Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society.
Angela practices in the Health Care Practice Group at Katz Korin Cunningham and focuses her practice on the defense of health care providers, namely long-term care providers, in cases alleging medical malpractice in courts throughout the State of Indiana. In addition, Angela assists with the appellate briefs for the Health Care Practice Group, including the Correctional Health Care Practice Group where she represents medical professionals in the correctional setting, primarily in cases alleging medical malpractice and civil rights violations in federal court.
B.A., sociology & criminology
While in law school, Angela juggled working full-time as a governmental affairs associate for a private firm lobbying the state legislature on behalf of health care providers and associations. Prior to joining Katz Korin Cunningham, Angela served as a Litigation Staff Attorney at the Indiana State Department of Health. She practiced administrative and civil litigation for the Divisions of Acute Care, Long-Term Care, Environmental Public Health (EPH), HIV Medical Services and Children with Special Needs Health Care Services.
