Angela draws on significant knowledge of the wireless regulatory landscape and experience at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to advise clients on, and help them comply with, FCC rules and regulations. With particular expertise on spectrum use policies and auction procedures, she has shepherded Mintz's clients through several FCC auctions related to next-generation 5G wireless technologies – including for low-, mid-, and high-band spectrum – and routinely advocates on behalf of clients to ensure that the agency’s rules align with their interests.

Angela returned to Mintz in 2019 after spending over three years in the Auctions & Spectrum Access Division of the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau. While at the FCC, Angela served as a lead attorney for the Connect America Fund Phase II Auction, which awarded $1.488 billion in government subsidies over 10 years to more than 100 winning bidders committed to delivering fixed broadband and voice services covering over 700,000 locations in 45 states. Angela also served as a member of the team tasked with implementing the Nation’s first Broadcast Incentive Auction and was instrumental in developing the parameters and procedures for the FCC’s Mobility Fund Phase II Auction and Spectrum Frontier Auctions.

Prior to joining the FCC, Angela advised Mintz clients on a range of wireless issues — including licensed and unlicensed spectrum policies, spectrum auctions, data roaming, interoperability, and FirstNet. She also defended the GPS industry before the FCC and Congress from an entity that proposed a service in adjacent frequency spectrum that would have threatened the reception of GPS signals.

Earlier in her career, Angela worked as a Communications Associate in the Washington, DC office of a global, full-service law firm and summered in its Hong Kong office. There she served as a member of the General Counsel team charged with oversight of the largest realignment of radio spectrum ever attempted by the FCC. 

Angela spearheads the TechComm Section’s “Next-Gen-Fem” initiative for up-and-coming women leaders and influencers in the communications and technology industry. And she leads the Section’s monthly blog on What’s New in 5G.
