Michelle F. Achterberg
Employment and labor Attorney at Eau Claire, WI
also known as Michelle Achterberg Welch
Licensed for 10 years
Attorney Michelle Achterberg Welch has been in the legal profession for over seventeen years and serves clients throughout Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. She recently started her own law firm, where she focuses exclusively on civil litigation matters, including family law, employment law, and personal injury. Michelle also represents many small businesses throughout the Chippewa Valley.
Michelle’s background and life experience enables her to provide compassionate representation while advocating zealously for her clients. Also known for throwing some occasional humor into her practice of law, Michelle’s witty personality oftentimes rids clients of their anxiety and provides them with some much needed comic relief.
Prior to opening her own practice, Michelle worked with Attorney Thomas Guelzow at Guelzow Law Offices, Ltd., with whom she remains affiliated and whom she continues to enjoy co-counseling complex personal injury and products liability cases.
Before venturing to Eau Claire, Michelle practiced in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she focused exclusively on employment matters.
Michelle also worked as a paralegal for over 12 years, assisting civil litigation attorneys in court rooms throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. Her work as a paralegal revealed how comfortable she felt in the courtroom which ultimately led her to pursue law school with the intent of becoming a civil litigator.
In her spare time, Michelle enjoys spending time with her new husband, family and friends, shopping, and running with her (obnoxious, yet extremely handsome) yellow lab, Riley, whom she occasionally takes to the office with her.
