Angel Adams developed her mental toughness and work ethic growing up on Marine Corps bases in Germany, California, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina.
After earning her degree in business administration from Mount Olive College, with honors, Angel spent twelve years as a paralegal, learning the business of legal practice from the ground up, including at Shipman & Wright. A Wilmington resident since 1995, Angel then sought new challenges.
In 2005, Angel graduated from Campbell University School of Law magna cum laude after having served as an editor of the Campbell Law Review and earning numerous academic awards.
She returned to Shipman & Wright as an attorney practicing complex commercial litigation, consumer class actions, and construction litigation. With the majority of Angel’s practice focused on consumer class actions, she was an intricate part of the legal team that forged class action settlements in Mills, et al. v. Hendrick Automotive, Group, et al, Union County Superior Court 04-CVS-2301 and Owens, et al. v. Sonic Automotive, Inc., File No. 12-CVS-576, Craven County Superior Court, North Carolina. More recently, Angel has expanded into the areas of trusts and estates, business organizations and contract law.
Angel and her husband, Greg Adams, have two children.
