(Houston, TX) The Houston law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner is proud to announce that Angelina Wike has joined the firm as an associate attorney. Ms. Wike began her legal career practicing at an insurance defense firm where she gained valuable knowledge about the insurance industry and learned firsthand the litigation and settlement tactics used by insurance companies and defense firms. Most recently, Ms. Wike represented residential and commercial policyholders in breach of contract and first-party bad faith claims at another prominent plaintiff’s firm in Houston. Her current practice at Abraham Watkins focuses on a wide variety of personal injury matters, including automobile accidents and premises liability, and representation of first party policy holders in disputes against their insurance companies.
Ms. Wike graduated with Honors from University of Houston-Clear Lake where she was a member of Alpha Phi Sigma, a Criminal Justice Honor Society.

Ms. Wike represented South Texas in multiple national moot court competitions and won a number of awards, including two best overall advocate awards in nationally held competitions. She received the Dean’s Outstanding Advocate Award in recognition of her advocacy and was inducted into the Order of the Barristers Advocacy Honor Society. While in law school, Ms. Wike also held judicial internships with Judge Debra Ibarra Mayfield and Judge Jeff Bohm as well as several internships with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
