Erica DiAngelo Allen

Managing Partner at DiAngelo Law

Meet Erica DiAngelo Allen, the managing partner at DiAngelo Law, a virtual trademark law firm.

In this episode of “And in Heels,” we had the pleasure of speaking with Erica DiAngelo Allen, a self-proclaimed legal nerd, creative entrepreneur, fashionista, and foodie. She shared her journey as an entrepreneur and the importance of being true to oneself. 

Listening to Erica share her personal journey, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of surrounding yourself with the right people
  • Trademark law is essential for small businesses to protect their intellectual property and avoid legal issues.
  • Leveraging intellectual property can create additional revenue streams and partnerships for business growth.

Erica’s entrepreneurial journey began at a young age, fueled by her innate drive and creativity. Her childhood ventures, such as selling food and drinks to golfers outside her grandfather’s house and starting a business bedazzling clothes and accessories, laid the foundation for her entrepreneurial spirit and set her on a path of self-discovery. 

Her journey as an entrepreneur and attorney was not without its challenges. As a teenager, she faced copyright infringement papers, sparking her interest in the legal field. This curiosity led her to pursue a law degree. However, after graduating and entering a toxic work environment, Erica’s mental health suffered, prompting her to bravely leave her initial job within a year and swiftly launch her own venture, DiAngelo Law.

This podcast episode serves as a testament to the power of embracing one’s true self and navigating the unexpected twists and turns along the way with no defined linear path or a predetermined finish line. Instead, it is about being open to new opportunities, surrounding oneself with the right people, and protecting one’s intellectual property. 

Erica’s journey of wisdom and embrace the power of entrepreneurship. Let us be true to ourselves, seek out the right mentors and advisors, and protect our intellectual property. By doing so, we can pave the way for our own success and create a lasting impact in the business world.
