Carol DeVita, Firm Manager for Haas & Associates, PA
Carol has been a manager in many different adventures. She started learning her management style early, as the first born of five siblings. Later she learned about developing and building large projects in a real estate mortgage firm and then at a savings and loan. Managing other people’s children came later as she worked in a school library. Carol perfected multi-tasking and keeping everything running as a mother with four children.
While her first love was the theater, being herself and interacting with people is the part in which she is most comfortable. At Haas & Associates, she can use all of her talents in making sure the day-to-day activities of the Firm run smoothly, answering calls, fielding questions about the Firm, and helping people to understand how the process works. Keeping the Firm running smoothly, and helping the attorneys and staff serve our clients, taps into this lifetime of skills. “Every day is a good day, I enjoy what I do, helping people and working with an excellent set of professionals”.
Now that the family are all adults, she enjoys her cats, Jacob and Lynx. Spending time at the beach is a relaxing necessity. Family dinners, which her children now host, are proof that life does change and with that, new opportunities come along every day.

She also has furry family members, dogs Belle and Mia, and her cats, Layla and Maddy.

Angela represented me in my divorce and I couldn't be happier with how smoothly it went. She is professional, compassionate and very knowledgeable in today's Modern Family laws. Thanks again for your expert legal representation Angela! Let's have lunch 😉
I have worked in several court areas with Angela Haas for over 8 years. She is always on-time and prepared for court. She is a zealous advocate for her clients. She is well-respected within the Court community. She is extremely knowledgeable in several areas of the law, including family law and juvenile law. I would highly recommend her!
Angela did an outstanding job of representing me in my divorce. Integrity and trust are important to me and she did not let me down. I would highly recommend her services.
I hired Angela 1-3 years ago. Angela handled my Divorce & Separation matter. I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers. Ms Haas successfully handled my separation, divorce and other related cases, always protecting my interests. She is very responsive, professional and responsible attorney. I highly recommend Ms Haas.
I had an unusual family law case that a previous (different) lawyer had not handled to my satisfaction, and the case was dragging on and on. Angela was able to give me guidance and encouragement to hang in there for what I thought was right when the going got tough. She is definitely an asset to any client going through a legal process. I recommended her to my work's legal referral group as well.
