Bethany Torgersen, J.D., LL.M.

Bethany was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish before moving to Arizona in 2001. She graduated law school and a master in laws program from the University of Arizona in Tucson. After law school Bethany moved to Phoenix and has worked here ever since.
Since obtaining her license to practice in July of 2006, Bethany has restricted her practice to civil law. More specifically, the vast majority of those cases have been focused on personal injury where she represents the victims of other people’s negligent actions. Even during law school Bethany was an active member of the American Association for Justice (previously the American Trial Lawyers Association).
Over the years, Bethany has resolved cases for people from all walks of life. Throughout her life, her family has focused on the importance of responsibility: to family, to community, to society and that carries over to clients. At Torgersen Law Firm, Bethany has made it a point to ensure that clients are able to focus on their recovery. To do that, members of the firm will handle all parts of your claim, from the property damage, to following your medical treatment and healing, and ultimately until your claim is submitted and the responsible parties have been held accountable.

Angela Poliquin, J.D., LL.M.

Angela received her law degree and an advanced law degree in Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy from the University of Arizona. She has been licensed to practice law in Arizona since 2006. She has broad experience in a number of practice areas, always representing the underdog against government or big business, but has settled into representing people who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. Angela has a fierce belief in access to justice for all, regardless of means. She takes pleasure in battling giant insurance companies to get a fair result for her clients, even if it means going all the way to trial.
In her years of practice, the recurrent feedback from clients, criminal and other, has always been, “I felt like I mattered to Angela; that I wasn’t just a case file.”
Angela balances her practice with a full family life. She has been married to Richard Poliquin since 1995, and they have five great kids, with two elementary-aged boys at home. One of the children has significant special needs, and has learned a great deal about special needs law through advocacy for her own child in educational and medical settings. She loves to share what she has learned with similarly-situated parents, and speaks at seminars to help educate special needs parents for advocacy.
Angela is proud to have found a home at Torgersen Law Firm, a law firm which recognizes the inherent value of human beings, and which treats every client as a person, not a case. Her highest goal in each case is achieving the best possible outcome for her client.
