“I am motivated by the people that come to our office for help. Talking to them and offering, at the very least, someone to listen.” Angelina Umstead

With a strong passion for justice and desire for things to be fair, attorney Angelina Umstead began practicing law to help people who could not help themselves.

As a practicing attorney, it is important to her that people know they are being heard and that they matter.

What Clients Can Expect

Umstead isn’t afraid to face a challenge head-on. Companies (and people) shouldn’t be able to hide behind the complexities of a case. That’s why attorney Umstead leaves no stone unturned. Any decision she makes is always very well-thought out and researched. She is not afraid to ask questions because she knows that every client has a story. She wants to hear it and help determine which solutions are best for them.

It’s important to let clients know that their voices matter and that they are being heard. Attorney Umstead also tries to educate clients on the legal aspects of their case, which can feel overwhelming at first. If you ever have a question, you can call and speak directly with attorney Umstead.
