Meet Angela Holm

Angie, as we affectionately call her, is the heart-and-soul of the Law Offices of Torres & Haroldson.  She has first contact with everyone who comes in through the doors or calls on the phone.  More importantly, she keeps Victor and Peter organized and makes sure that the office runs like a well-oiled machine.  And, as some of you may have already experienced, Angie is at her best when she is talking with clients -- whether it's explaining things so that they are easily understandable, gather or sending information and documents, or helping guide them through each step of the process along the way.

Angie has worked with personal injury clients for over ten years.  Long before she started working in the legal field, she was involved in a car accident sought the help of an attorney with her case. Her own personal experience, along with her compassion and ability to listen, has definitely developed her unparalleled skill of connecting with our clients.

Personal Background

Angie graduated from Mount Si High School, located in Snoqualmie, in 1991. She also met her soon-to-be ruggedly handsome husband that summer. They welcomed their first baby boy in 1994, and second son in 1998.  Their employment eventually had them relocating from the Eastside to Federal Way.  Angie stayed at home to care for their children for 6 years.  When she re-entered the workforce, her first job was working with process servers. That experience led to her first legal position doing personal injury work in downtown Seattle. Angie loved it, and she was hooked.

Angie and her family

When Angie is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and their dog Leila. She also belongs to a 4x4 association where she and her husband are board members. They actually created their own 4x4 club, and own a few 4x4 vehicles as well. Angie also enjoy gardening and embroidery, loves -- and I do mean LOVES -- the color pink.  Interestingly, Angie someday hopes to own a miniature pig.
