I am excited for the opportunity to give back to the people of this firm who have given so much to me over the course of the last nearly twenty years,” said Angela. “My colleagues have not only shaped me as a lawyer, but their individual and collective guidance and friendship continue to make me a better person. I have had the distinct advantage of watching and learning from Frank’s leadership of our Providence office and the firm generally. In that regard, I am committed to continuing to nurture the family atmosphere and collaboration that allow us to deliver the highest quality legal representation to our valued clients.”
