ANGELA M. FORSTIE

Angela Forstie’s lifelong goal has been to help others overcome injustice. Ms. Forstie pursues this goal every day at the Linley Jones Firm, P.C. where she serves as Senior Associate.

Ms. Forstie has enjoyed a rich life full of varied cultures from growing up in small towns like St. James, Minnesota and Cartersville, Georgia to living and practicing law in the Atlanta Metro area. She attended Auburn University from 2001 through 2003 before transferring to Old Dominion University, where she earned a degree in Biology with a pre-med concentration. Ms. Forstie then went to Georgia State University College of Law. In 2009, she graduated with her law degree and was admitted to the Georgia Bar.

Ms. Forstie has a diverse work history, amplifying the services of The Linley Jones Firm. She previously worked for both a small boutique law firm specializing in civil litigation and a mid-sized firm in Atlanta, where she focused on legal malpractice and medical malpractice defense law for nearly four years. Ms. Forstie’s prior experience gives her a unique perspective on plaintiff’s work, as she is able to anticipate the approach that a defense team may take to a legal malpractice lawsuit.

Ms. Forstie works closely with her clients to develop and execute case strategies. She enjoys litigation in a unique area of law not widely practiced and takes pride in helping her clients obtain successful results when a prior attorney let them down.
