Attorney Profile

Ms. Angotti focuses on personal injury litigation, civil rights actions, and consumer protection act claims in her uniquely collaborative law practice.  Ms. Angotti knows that you can’t defend what you don’t understand, and she is passionate about learning her client’s industries, products, and the facts of each case.

Ms. Angotti brings out the best in all her clients and witnesses by learning what they are passionate about and telling their stories. Ms. Angotti understands that while data, facts, and analysis are the bricks of a case, the narrative is the mortar that holds the bricks together.  And bricks without mortar are useless.

All the great teachers, philosophers, and religious figures throughout history have been master storytellers.  Storytelling helps break down the walls between us and the people we need to persuade.  Ms. Angotti is passionate about telling her clients' stories.  Learning how and why clients do what they do is fascinating and interesting for Ms. Angotti, and her passion for learning about her clients allows her to tell a story that is fascinating and interesting to a jury.

Ms. Angotti brings a depth of knowledge of railroad functions and operations that adds value to any FELA or crossing case.  Her ability to quickly identify and apply the data, facts, and analysis in the mechanical, engineering, and transportation departments quickly brings out the best in her clients, co-counsel, and witnesses. 

In addition to defending Class I railroads, Ms. Angotti has been honored to represent companies and individual plaintiffs in civil rights actions against the local government and police, consumer protection act claims, breach of contract claims, and equine law.
