Angela’s practice spans the full spectrum of criminal litigation: from bail to sentencing, as well as criminal appeals. She has appeared at all levels of court, including the Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of Canada. She also has experience with administrative and regulatory matters.

Angela earned her B.A.H. from Queen’s University in 2009 and her J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2012. While attending law school she participated in Osgoode’s prestigious Criminal Law Intensive Program and was highly involved with justice sector initiatives in her community. She spent several years working and volunteering with Peacebuilders International (Canada), a youth-focused not-for-profit that aims to provide young people with appropriate access to justice. She continues to advocate for young people entangled with the criminal justice system through her practice defending young people charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Prior to joining the DBSF Association, she articled with DBS Counsel where she assisted with difficult trials and appeals while working on complex Charter Applications and assisting Adam Boni in writing for Canada Law Book’s Sentencing Drug Offenders.
