Angela R. Olson

Email: Angela Olson 

I am the owner, manager and principal attorney of Angela Olson Law. I specialize in family law and criminal defense. I spend 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 am a member of the Wisconsin State Bar Association and the St. Croix Valley Bar Association. I am a past president of the New Richmond Chamber of Commerce, a founding board member of the St. Croix Valley Young Professionals Group, and an active member in the Hudson Chamber of Commerce. My contacts with other attorneys and professionals in the St. Croix Valley outside of the courtroom greatly assist my ability to reach favorable outcomes for my clients inside the courtroom. I reside in New Richmond with my husband, twin sons and daughter.
