Angela M. Frozena

Managing Attorney

Attorney Angela Frozena brings 15 years of diverse experience to serve the people of Kenosha County and eastern Wisconsin.

A native of northeastern Wisconsin, Angela graduated from Roncalli High School and received an Honors Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematical Economics from Marquette University. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School and started her Master of Business Administration at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater while working at a small law firm in Fort Atkinson.

A desire to be closer to family brought her back to the Fox Cities where she worked as a tax associate at a large regional accounting firm and later in a variety of roles for a large financial services company, completing her MBA along the way. She also worked briefly in the non-profit sector before returning to the practice of law.

Angela's educational background, experience and love of learning help her bring a unique perspective to her clients. She has not only drafted estate plans, but also administered them as a trust officer and prepared fiduciary income, estate and gift tax returns. Her years in the financial services industry provided valuable experience both in working with advisors and understanding the inner workings of underwriting, in-force operations and claims, particularly for long-term care insurance.

Angela has a long history of service, going back to the first civic board she served on while still in high school. Currently she serves on the Board for the Catholic Education Foundation for the Diocese of Joliet.

Angela lives in DuPage County, Illinois with her spouse who is also an attorney. She can often be found on tennis courts and cheering on the Brewers at Miller Park.
