“Every decision you make in your business is a ‘vision decision’ — the work is staying clear on your vision. If you do that, the rest falls into place.”
Before starting her law firm, she worked government positions including Office of General Counsel in Harrisburg and the United Nations at the International Tribunal for Rwanda prosecuting those responsible for the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. Philadelphia Business Journal recently named Angela “40 under 40.”
