Attorney Ashley Biermann
J.D., Summa Cum Laude, William Mitchell College of Law, St. Paul, MN
B.A., Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, MN
Ashley joined Meuser Law Office, P.A. in August of 2014 as a law clerk following her graduation from William Mitchell College of Law. After her subsequent admittance to the Minnesota Bar, she joined the firm as an associate attorney in October 2014. Her practice involves representing injured workers in workers’ compensation, PERA/MSRS disability, personal injury and wrongful death matters.
Ashley has represented hundreds of injured workers in the context of their workers’ compensation and PERA/MSRS duty disability claims. She focuses on representing police officers and firefighters injured in the line of duty. Ashley has successfully litigated cases at the Office of Administrative Hearings and in Minnesota District Court, conducted depositions of medical experts and lay witnesses, resolved claims through mediation and other forms of ADR, written appellate and post-hearing briefs, and presented in front of law enforcement and firefighter unions across the State of Minnesota. She is particularly experienced in cases involving police officers and firefighters who develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on the job.
Ashley understands and appreciates that when a client comes to her for help, the client is worried about his ability to support himself and his family, and as a result, this is likely the most stressful period in his life so far. Ashley is passionate about making a positive difference in her clients’ lives by helping them navigate through a complex legal system to get them the benefits they deserve.
Prior to joining the firm, Ashley worked as a personal injury law clerk for two Minneapolis and Mankato-based law firms. In law school, Ashley served on the William Mitchell Law Review and her article, “The Practical Effects of Dickhoff v. Green on Wrongful Death Actions in Minnesota: Drawing a Line in the Sand or Committing to a Fair Solution?” was selected for publication. Ashley received five CALI Awards (for earning the highest grade in the class) for Torts I, Torts II, No-Fault Insurance, Workers’ Compensation, and Advocacy and was consistently awarded a spot on the Dean’s List.
In her free time, Ashley enjoys volunteering her time at Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue. As of June 2018, she has fostered over forty dogs and placed them into adoptive homes around Minnesota and Wisconsin. She is an avid reader and gardener. Ashley enjoys spending time with her family, including her two resident dogs, Louis and Teddy.
