Angela is the manager of First Midwest Bank's Estate Administration, Special Asset and Contested Trust division that was created in 2013. This division handles all types of fiduciary accounts from the simple to the complex – including accounts with operating businesses, disputed matters, trusts and estates with ambiguities in the document, and accounts with potential breach of fiduciary duty claims or mismanagement by the prior trustee or executor. With any controversy, we will serve as the neutral third party and will assist in finding a solution that satisfies the terms of the trust and resolves the disputed issue.

Prior to joining First Midwest, Angela worked in the private practice of law and represented clients in estate planning, trust and estate administration, business transactions and commercial real estate transactions.
