My name is Angligène Servania-Woods founder and owner of The Bridge. The Bridge stands for much more than legal services. I am specialized in Management of International Legal and Business Projects in an entrepreneurial way by making use of my cultural affinity, without forgetting the human being behind the business and creating an innovative level of service. Bridging Business with a personalized service.
It is my mission to make this link visible and show that one cannot exist without the other. The business of my client is paramount to me and The Bridge professionals. I’m always interested in my clients’ stories, because they are undeniably linked to their company. Starting and running a company often comes from an intrinsic motivation and in order to provide a client with the full service they require, it is vital to know their stories. But first allow me to share my story with you.
Born and raised on Curaçao and gaining my legal experience both on Curacao and in the Netherlands, have made me a first-hand expert on what it means to bridge two different worlds together with my clients. A skill I have been using and perfected in my professional career when working for well known international companies in Amsterdam.
My interests have always been broad, with law as a foundation. Growing up with a father who worked as a detective for the Curaçao police corps, I was taught at an early age what it means to be discreet, what it means to be aware of my surroundings and to think a few steps ahead in any situation. My mother on the other hand has taught me the importance of sensitivity, kindness, trading and providing service to others. Combined with my natural entrepreneurial character, these skills have formed me into the legal and coaching professional I am today.
After 20 years of working for several companies on both national and international level, I decided it was time for the next step, satisfy my entrepreneurial hunger and start my own company. A company where I can provide more than just legal services for my clients and bridge business with a personal touch.

Stress Coaching & Counseling – your bridge to stress handling.
Also stress handling, will be executed professionally.
Next to being a legal professional, I am also a licensed Stress Coach and Counselor. Inspired by my experiences in the corporate world I started taking courses and training to develop myself as a Stress Coach & Counselor. In my role, I am committed to improve the inner handling of stress and remove the external causes together with you. During our coaching sessions, we pay attention to practical exercises that will allow you to manage stress on a physical and mental level. Counseling can be used to break certain habits, determine goals and restore self-confidence. I will help you to clarify your thoughts and feelings. Counseling helps to create space to make decisions and give life a different direction.
