Press Release: Attorney Meryl Poulin joins Gideon Asen

Attorney Meryl Poulin has joined Gideon Asen LLC, the premier medical malpractice firm in Northern New England. 

Poulin, who will represent plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases and catastrophic  personal injury cases, became known to the partners at Gideon Asen while she was  representing hospitals in medical malpractice cases at a large Portland-based law  firm. 

“She was fearless,” Taylor Asen. “I could see right away that she was going to be  one of the best trial lawyers of her generation.” 

Meryl comes to Gideon Asen from Pine Tree Legal Assistance, Maine’s largest  legal aid organization. At Pine Tree, Meryl represented low-income Mainers in  housing and eviction cases and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault  in protection order and family law cases. Meryl tried nearly twenty cases to verdict  at Pine Tree Legal and prevailed in all but one case. 

I could not be more excited to join the Gideon Asen team,” Poulin said. “I know,  having been their adversary in the past, that Ben and Taylor are brilliant, creative,  and highly skilled trial lawyers. Beyond that, though, I know they are relentlessly  committed to their clients and to achieving the best result possible. Being on a team  like that is what I have always envisioned for my career.”

Originally from Cape Elizabeth, Poulin attended Colby College, where she played  varsity hockey, field hockey, and softball and was captain of the hockey and field  hockey teams. At Maine Law school, Meryl distinguished herself as an appellate  advocate, winning the honor of “Prize Arguer” in her class and the Gignoux Award  for Appellate Advocacy.
