Engel Law Office has been providing superior quality legal services to the Southeastern Minnesota region since 2000. We take a practical and professional approach to cases, with the objective of meeting our client’s needs in the most efficient and effective way possible. We pride ourselves on listening and being responsive to our client’s needs. We understand that your legal matter is extremely important to you and we do not take that responsibility lightly. Because of our past record of success and personalized service, we receive many referrals from other professionals and former clients. As a result, demand for our services has traditionally been very high, particularly during January and June. Because of our dedication to existing clients and their needs, we periodically are required to turn away potential clients. However, we welcome inquiries at all times of the year–even about legal matters not within our area of expertise–and will take the time to point you in the right direction to resolve your legal issue.
