Angela Carr is an experienced civil litigator, focusing her trial practice on professional liability defense, employment law, business litigation, and real estate disputes. She frequently consults with hospitals and medical practice groups on avoiding and minimizing liability risks. She was named by Super Lawyers as a Rhode Island Rising Star in 2012 and 2013.

Ms. Carr has obtained a number of jury trial verdicts in favor of medical professionals. For example, she most recently persuaded a Massachusetts Superior Court jury that a nurse practitioner and her medical practice employer provided proper care and treatment to a woman who eventually died of lung cancer. Following an eight-day trial and three hours of deliberation, the jury found that the nurse practitioner and her employer were not negligent and returned a verdict in their favor. Seminars

Ms. Carr has presented numerous seminars to Rhode Island physicians on best practices for transmitting and storing electronic medical records in accordance with HIPAA regulations. She has also been a panelist and lecturer at employment law seminars involving issues of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and federal law.
