Gideon Asen Law Firm Moves to Auburn
Gideon Asen LLC, a personal injury law firm established in New Gloucester, has recently made the move to Auburn, Maine. Their new office is on the fourth floor of 95 South Main Street, a space previously occupied by Skelton Taintor & Abbot.
The firm’s founder, Benjamin Gideon, has an extensive history of persevering through challenges. After being cut from the hockey team at Cornell University, he struggled with his coursework and was eventually suspended on academic probation. However, he refused to give up and enrolled in community college courses to keep up his studies. He was eventually re-admitted to Cornell, where he completed his undergraduate degree before applying to and attending Boston University’s School of Law. His grades at BU were so stellar that he was accepted as a transfer student to Yale Law School, where he would ultimately graduate with his law degree. Gideon continues to push through challenges on behalf of his clients alongside his partner, Taylor Asen.
Asen has an equally interesting story behind his work as a personal injury attorney. While attending Yale Law School, Asen worked at the Veterans Legal Services Clinic. Here, he helped veterans who were denied their disability benefits without merit. After graduation, he continued his work clerking for federal judges in New York City and Newark, New Jersey. He was eventually drawn back to his home state of Maine, where he would continue his outstanding legal work in the realm of traffic accidents, medical malpractice, and other personal injury cases.
The duo has made a name for themselves in the legal world, with both attorneys receiving recognition from SuperLawyers for several years. Both partners are the only lawyers from Maine listed on Lawdragon’s list of top 500 plaintiff’s attorneys. Asen and Gideon have also earned 10 out of 10 scores on AVVO, a prestigious registry of lawyers across the United States. This move to Auburn allows the pair to continue their great work in fighting tirelessly for their clients.
