Angela Y. DeMary

Shareholder

Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a workers' compensation attorney, Angela focuses the entirety of her practice on New Jersey workers’ compensation, representing the interests of employers, carriers and self-insureds. Throughout her career, Angela has gained significant experience handling claims involving issues of employment, coverage, compensability, causation/liability and permanency. Her cases also include specific issues of total disability (SIF), lack of coverage (UEF) and subcontractor/general contractor issues (Section 79).

Notably, Angela has argued multiple cases before the Appellate Division. She has secured favorable decisions on issues of entitlement to temporary total disability benefits addressed under Section 38 (commonly referred to as the Cunningham issue). Her experience also extends to issues involving jurisdiction and liability against a subsequent carrier (most often referred to as a Peterson or Bond-type issue).

In addition to her legal speaking engagements, Angela is actively involved with youth activities in her community. She participates in career day programs at the elementary and high school levels and devotes time to youth mentoring and motivation.

Prior to her career in law, Angela worked as a probation officer and as an advocate for victims of domestic violence.
