Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Woodlouse Hunter (Dysdera crocata). Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance. This particular spider does have rather big jaws though for preying on pill bugs so they could probably give a good pinch. They’re only likely to bite in self defense though.
