Angie Elliott, CP, NCCP

Angie Elliott is a proud native North Carolinian, having grown up in Charlotte and then making Durham her home after college.  Angie provides paralegal support for Julie Woodmansee and also serves as office manager for the firm.  Joining the firm in August 2020 was a full circle moment for Julie and Angie, as they had worked together for several years in the early 1990’s.

Angie is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and Meredith College Paralegal Program.  She received her national certification from NALA in 2000 and her state certification from the NC State Bar in 2005.  She has been active with various state paralegal organizations over the course of her career.

Angie has a passion for helping individuals, having worked in the past as a personal injury paralegal as well as in the nonprofit sector.  She finds personal fulfillment in assisting clients through what is often one of the most challenging times of their lives.

When she’s not helping our clients, Angie enjoys the lake (or beach), a good book, and a cold glass of Pinot Grigio; but most of all she enjoys making new memories with family and friends.
