Meet Your Attorney
Patrick Angel grew up in and around Bossier City, Louisiana and enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating high school. Patrick was stationed at
Camp Pendleton in California after boot camp, rose through the enlisted ranks quickly and was an infantry Sergeant, leading Marines in combat operations by the time the first Gulf War broke out in August of 1990. Then
Sergeant Angel was a member of the first Marine Corps infantry battalion to arrive in the Persian Gulf, only days after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. Patrick's infantry unit soon became part of the Marine Corps'
Task Force Ripper which served as the tip of the spear for
offensive combat operations of the First Marine Division.
After being honorably discharged from the military after an event-filled six year enlistment, Patrick was accepted to the University of California at Berkeley, where he earned his Bachelor's degree in English before attending law school in Portland Oregon. While at
Lewis and Clark Law School Patrick revealed an early talent for courtroom excellence by winning the honor of
Best Oral Advocate during the traditional first year Moot Court Competition.
Patrick was also one of very few law students certified by the State of Oregon to try criminal cases for the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office
while still in law school. Patrick tried numerous criminal cases to jury verdict winning numerous convictions while working in the District Attorney's office in 2001.
After his time spent interning in the District Attorney's office as a law student, Patrick focused exclusively on representing Oregonians from all over the state who have been exploited or injured by the wrongdoing or negligence of others. He takes only a small number of new cases each year and personally handles every aspect of each client's case from the first meeting to the end of trial. Since founding the injury litigation firm Angel Law PC, the business vision for the firm has been to focus on personal service, being accessible to clients, and providing each case with the prompt attention it deserves in order to maximize results.
Patrick has acquired a great deal of litigation experience during the time he's spent practicing law, having prevailed in countless hard fought courtroom battles of every type and kind. He's handled numerous complex legal cases including asbestos exposure cases,
wrongful death cases and pharmaceutical cases, as well as car accident cases,
premises liability cases, and
medical malpractice cases, and has logged hundreds of hours in intensive depositions, hearings, mediations, and arbitrations. Patrick is experienced with every aspect of preparing a client's civil case for trial.
Patrick is an active member of the Oregon State Bar and currently serves as a member of the Executive Committee of the Products Liability Section and is committed to alerting consumers about
dangerous or recalled products. He is a member of the
American Bar Association, the Multnomah County Bar Association, The American Association for Justice and has been a member of
Oregon Trial Lawyer's Association (OTLA) for over ten years. He has represented injured or exploited clients all over the state of Oregon from Medford to Portland to La Grande and most points in between. He is admitted to practice and has appeared in the State Courts of Oregon, including the Oregon Court of Appeals, and the (Federal) U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.
When he's not fighting for clients Patrick enjoys backpacking and camping with his wife Amy, growing heirloom tomatoes (not easy in the Northwest), reading, eating Louisiana food, cheering for the Cal Bears, and the time he spends with his wife and his five year old daughter.
"True, we build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state." - John W. Davis, Address at 75th Anniversary Proceedings of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York (March 16, 1946).
