Angela D'Elia Decembrini
Lawyer

I first became interested in the history and culture of the Indigenous Peoples in what we currently know as Canada at a young age. This interest grew as I pursued my undergraduate studies, and by law school I knew that I wanted to work on behalf of Indigenous communities seeking recognition and protection of their rights.

As an advocate, my objective is to work with our clients to identify and understand their legal needs and provide strategic advice to assist them in achieving their goals. At First Peoples Law, I’m able to do this work as part of a team of people dedicated to providing effective legal support to Indigenous Peoples across Canada. 

My commitment to this advocacy work extends beyond my law practice. As a member of the Justice and Corporate Accountability Project, I work with a group of volunteer lawyers to provide legal knowledge to communities in Kenya negatively impacted by resource extraction activities.
