Minneapolis, MN (November 5, 2018) – Gislason & Hunter LLP is pleased to announce Partner/Attorney Angela M. Nelson has been accepted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).

ABOTA dedicates itself to the preservation and promotion of the Seventh Amendment, which guarantees the right to civil jury trials. Members in this prestigious invitation-only group must have tried a minimum of 10 civil jury trials to conclusion. More than 7,600 lawyers and judges are involved in ABOTA chapters in all 50 states.

“ABOTA is one of the nation’s most effective organizations in championing the ethics, professionalism and principles of the legal profession, and we are honored to have Angela be part of this select group,” said Gislason & Hunter Managing Partner/Attorney, Timothy Tobin.

Nelson’s practice focuses primarily on defending health care providers who are faced with claims of malpractice. Her work includes, but is not limited to, representing doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, podiatrists, social workers, physician assistants as well as entities such as hospitals and clinics.

In addition, Nelson assists clients where protected health information was allegedly released without patient consent in violation of the Minnesota Health Records Act. She is a zealous advocate for all those individuals and entities that she represents, and she regularly tries cases to jury trials throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.
