In addition to her advocacy at the trial court level, Angie also has experience with appellate advocacy with notable cases on appeal including B.D.H. v. Mickelson, 2010 ND 235, 792 N.W.2d 169, dismissing as a matter of law a wrongful life claim against medical providers, and Hoffner v. Johnson, 2003 ND 79, 660 N.W.2d 909, upholding North Dakota’s statute of repose for medical malpractice claims to constitutional challenges.

In addition to advocacy, Angie’s health law practice includes counseling medical providers on risk management and claims prevention; as an invited speaker, addressing medical students, healthcare administration students, physician groups and health systems, and attorneys; and representing providers in professional board and licensing matters. As a qualified neutral under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice and included on North Dakota’s Neutral Roster maintained by the North Dakota Supreme Court Administrator’s Office, Angie is available as a mediator in select cases in Minnesota and North Dakota.

Angie graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of North Dakota with a B.A. in Political Science and with distinction from the University of North Dakota School of Law, where she earned Order of the Coif designation for her academic achievement and Order of the Barristers recognition for her advocacy skills.
