Angela Rooney Angela Rooney

Family Law Attorney in Glendale

Angela Rooney is a senior associate with Holmes & Holmes. She is admitted to practice before all California State Courts and the Federal District Court.

Angela completed her undergraduate education with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Southern California in 1991. She received her Juris Doctor degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, now Western Michigan University, in 1996.

Angela’s background includes extensive practice in family law, corporate transactions, and litigation. Prior to opening her own family law practice in 2005, Angela gained experience negotiating multi-million dollar contracts as in-house counsel at construction and entertainment companies. She later gained litigation skills and trial experience as an associate attorney at a general civil law practice firm in downtown Los Angeles, where she handled myriad matters ranging from simple contract disputes to complex construction defect litigation. Although the experience gained in different fields of the law was invaluable, Angela’s passion has always been family law.

Angela was introduced to family law in 1988 while in college when she first became employed by Robert Holmes. Angela apprenticed under Mr. Holmes until she left California to attend law school. Angela’s primary focus in family law is to move families forward as easily and economically as possible. She recognizes and understands both the emotional and legal impact of these matters and works with her clients to reach resolutions outside of Court when possible, and through hard-fought litigation when necessary.

Angela volunteers with the Los Angeles Superior Court as a Daily Settlement Officer, helping litigants resolve their family law matters through mediation. She also served for multiple years as the Chairperson for the Los Angeles County Bar Association Dialogues on Freedom Program, where she organized and implemented the convergence of hundreds of local attorneys and high school students to engage in meaningful debate concerning issues of security versus freedom.
