After reading To Kill a Mockingbird at the age of 12, Angela Bobbitt knew she was destined for the legal field. Adopting the credence of character Atticus Finch, Angela wholeheartedly believes in standing up for what is right even if it’s not popular. Midway through attaining her bachelor’s in History Pre-Law at the University of Texas in Arlington, Angela realized law school was not in the stars for her. The legal field still beckoned, and she joined the Parker Law Firm as a legal assistant in 1997.
Angela recognizes that in her profession she comes in contact with people who are usually experiencing one of the worst times in their lives. Knowing that clients are enduring something unfamiliar and scary, she comforts them by being a calm in the storm and assuring them that the Parker Law Firm will shoulder the load.
Holding the highest rank possible in master multitasking, Angela applies her juggling skills to balancing family, homework, dinners and a full-time career. A Jane of all trades, Angela finds joy in knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, sewing and cooking. We have suspicions she can do all simultaneously.
Her love for reading only intensified as the years progressed, which has served her well but may possibly result in a visit from the reality TV show, Hoarders, due to her obsessive book collecting. Angela met her husband of 24 years on a blind date, and they produced a smart, funny and wonderful son. Friday nights at the Bobbitt house are reserved for much-needed down time, movies and either pizza or tacos, but on Monday morning Angela is geared up and ready to get back to the office to help those in need of her counsel.
“There are a handful of clients who even after their case has concluded have continued to call or email me. I take that as the highest compliment. I strive to make clients not just feel like another case. To me, they are real people going through a serious and emotional time in their life, and I will do everything I can to make it easier for them,” Angela says.
