The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Chamber Ambassadors celebrated Andrews & Crell, P.C., located at 116 S Main Street in Bluffton, as the August Member of the Month. Colin Andrews and David Crell have worked together for seven years, both moving to Bluffton in 2015.
Andrews and Crell were previously practicing law in Fort Wayne and would come to Wells County to meet with other lawyers for meetings. “Many of our meetings were held at the Snug restaurant downtown and the people we would meet and talk to were so warm and welcoming that we decided to move to Wells County,” stated Andrews.
Andrews & Crell, P.C. specialize in family law and divorce, personal injury, business law, and estate planning and probate offering a unique litigation experience with their combined 20 years of experience in law. Crell has been named a Top Lawyer by Fort Wayne Monthly magazine and a Rising Star by Super Lawyers, a nation-wide periodical published by Thompson-Reuters. In 2016 the firm was recognized as the 10 Best in Client Satisfaction from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.
The firm welcomed Ashley Payne in January of 2017 as a paralegal. Payne said, “working for these two has been wonderful. They are great people that love their community, and we have a lot of fun.”
Andrews and Crell said they moved to Wells County wanting to be a part of this community and both are actively involved in local organizations and love spending time with their families. Crell is on the Board for Bluffton NOW! and Family Centered Services and can be seen on stage with the Wells Community Theater. Andrews is the Treasurer of the Republican Party and spends most of his free time coaching his kids’ basketball and soccer leagues at the YMCA and Upwards.
“The community was really open and welcoming to us, the Chamber of Commerce has been great to work with, and we love being involved. Everything we need is right here,” concluded Andrews.
