About me



I  have been representing individuals in crisis throughout Minnesota since 1989.   I formed my firm in 1991, now known as Vermeulen Law Office, P.A.  Our mission is to provide high quality legal services to ordinary people facing extraordinary problems.


We are passionate about protecting the rights of our clients. While we assist our clients in resolving their problems, we are also experienced trial attorneys who are not afraid to go to court, if necessary, to protect our client's interests.


We represent individuals facing criminal, juvenile, DWI and other traffic charges. We also represent clients with domestic abuse, restraining orders, dissolution, custody, child support and other family law issues. In addition, we also handle a  variety of personal injury and wrongful death cases.


We have earned a solid reputation for achieving excellent results for our clients.
