History

John T. Alexander and Peter A. Angelas have been lifelong friends. They grew up in the same community and attended the same undergraduate university and law school.  Following law school, they each began their legal careers at separate law firms where they gained valuable legal experience.  In 1992 they decided to form Alexander & Angelas, P.C. to fulfill their vision of providing quality legal representation to their clients. They believed that cases could be handled more efficiently and with less legal expense if they became unburdened from the arbitrary billable hour requirements imposed at larger law firms.

Since 1992 Alexander & Angelas, P.C. has litigated over 4,000 civil cases. These cases have included wrongful death claims, commercial property loss cases, trucking claims, auto negligence cases, insurance coverage issues, fire loss claims, subrogation cases, and worker’s compensation cases.  The firm has clients which include nationally recognized corporations, motor carriers and insurance companies. These clients have been attracted and retained by a commitment to resolve cases expeditiously, efficiently and successfully.  Longtime client relationships have been nurtured by frequent communication, successful litigation outcomes and well-earned trust. 

Alexander & Angelas, P.C. has recently completed its 25th year. The firm has prospered by adhering to a litigation philosophy which places paramount importance on client expectations and successful litigation outcomes. The firm refuses to over-litigate cases merely to increase legal fees. Alexander & Angelas, P.C. routinely resolves cases in less than one year from the initial case assignment. We carefully monitor the aging of claims to minimize defense costs. We view each case assignment as an opportunity to keep and earn the trust of our clients.
