Angela is a patent attorney at Quinn IP Law. She helps clients succeed in today’s complex patent landscape with her combination of considerable legal and engineering experience.

Her broad technical background and practical engineering experience allows her to relate to inventors on a foundational level, helping her to secure broad protection for her clients.

Angela’s practice focuses on the preparation and prosecution of domestic, international, and foreign patent applications, infringement analysis, validity and design-around alternatives in a variety of mechanical, electrical, electro-mechanical and computer technologies including turbines, jet engines, automotive components, lithium-ion batteries, reusable packaging, elevator and escalator systems, optics, pressure retarded osmosis power systems, human-machine interface, medical devices and data mining.

Prior to joining Quinn IP Law, Angela spent over a decade working in the automotive industry at Chrysler Corporation. During her engineering career, Angela worked as a resident engineer for Team Viper, an engine design engineer and vehicle program manager.
