About the Firm

At Achterberg Angell & Craft LLC, we are here to serve you. Responsive. Dependable. Personal. Dedicated. These four words sum up the legal services provided by, Samantha Angell, Catherine Craft and Andrea Swisher.

We honestly believe that more than anything else, law is about people - people such as you, who perhaps have been placed in a situation you are not prepared to handle. Odds are if you are reading this, you are doing so at what may be a very difficult time in your life. Perhaps someone you love is in the hospital, injured in a car accident caused by another driver. You may be in desperate need of a Will or Power of Attorney. You may be in the midst of a bitter custody battle.

The first thing we want you to know is that we are ready to listen and lend our assistance. At this time in your life when so many things seem uncertain, we can be something stable for you to rely on. We are also ready to act – immediately, if necessary. If you have been in an accident, we can be on the scene with experts within hours, gathering the kind of evidence that disappears with time. If legal work is part of the solution, we will be your staunchest ally and advocate.
