ATTORNEY - TRANSACTION
During her time at the Sturm College of Law, Angela participated in the Tribal Wills Project, which sent law students to American Indian reservations during winter and spring break to draft wills, medical powers of attorney, living wills, and burial instructions for tribal members. If a tribal member holds trust land interest and does not have a will, the American Indian Probate Reform Act of 2004 determines which descendant(s) inherits the trust property interest. Under this law, and absent a will, such trust land interest can only be conveyed to a tribal member’s children (or if the interest is under 5% the oldest child or oldest grandchild) or the tribe itself if the tribal member has no living children or grandchildren. However, absent a will stating otherwise, a tribal member’s spouse cannot inherit such trust land interest. As an attorney, Angela has been practicing community association law since 2017 and has represented common interest communities in transactional, collection, foreclosure, and covenant enforcement matters. As such, she has interpreted, drafted, and amended community association governing documents; addressed covenant enforcement violations and assessment delinquencies; and represented community associations in contract disputes, land use issues, and Owner bankruptcy matters. She has represented community associations of various sizes, from a 6-unit condominium, to a master community association with over 1,100 units. In 2022, Angela joined Altitude Community Law and is now focusing her representation of common interest communities in transactional matters.
