Angela R. Olson

Divorce Attorney

Email: Angela Olson 

I am the owner, manager and principal attorney of Angela Olson Law. I specialize in family law and criminal defense. I am a litigator, spending a lot time in the courtroom representing people through the most difficult times in their lives – when they are getting a divorce or have been accused of a crime. I also counsel people on a daily basis assisting them in navigating through their changing lives. I am actively involved in many local, state and national associations to interact with many amazing people and enhance my knowledge of the law. My contacts with other attorneys and professionals in the St. Croix Valley and beyond, outside of the courtroom greatly assist my ability to reach favorable outcomes for my clients inside the courtroom. I also take pride in fundraising for many charitable organizations to help youth and those in need. I reside in New Richmond with my husband, twin sons and daughter.  We love the excitement in our lives personally and professionally!
