Madeline K. Baskfield
Madeline is a native of lovely Saint Peter, MN.
Madeline attended high school in Saint Peter just a few blocks from the courthouse steps. As a child, Madeline played “court” with her twin sisters, who often served as her defendants. She sometimes acquitted her sisters, but at other times they went to “jail” in the corner of her living room. In high school, she participated in Mock Trial, where she competed three times in the Minnesota State Mock Trial Tournament, and eventually earned the title of “All-State-Attorney.”
After earning her Bachelor of Arts in History from the small and well-known liberal arts school of Goshen College, located in Goshen Indiana, Madeline was admitted to one of the oldest law schools in Minnesota, Mitchell Hamline School of Law.
While in law school, she clerked for several law firms, including Kohlmeyer Hagen Law Office, as well as both the Ramsey County and Minnesota Federal Public Defenders’ offices. As a law clerk, she handled numerous high-profile cases, including murder charges and serious drug trafficking crimes. Additionally, she was active in representing incarcerated individuals through Mitchell Hamline’s Legal Assistance to Minnesota Prisoners Clinic, where she managed a variety of legal issues, including expungements.
After excelling in law school and graduating cum laude, Madeline clerked for the Honorable John R. Rodenberg at the Minnesota Court of Appeals. Through this experience, Madeline gained a valuable insight on how courts deeply analyze statutes and case law.
In her free time, Madeline enjoys world travelling and has spent time in Iceland, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway, Germany, France, and a semester in Peru. She additionally enjoys distance running and reading Stephen King novels.

Thank You Again, Jason, Shelly, Gail!
"Jason, Shelly, and Gail did an excellent job in my complicated farm divorce . The opposing councils tried multiple tricks and bulling but Jason Kohlmeyer wouldn’t allow such tactics. I absolutely would recommend them if your in a divorce situation. And they’re good personable people that takes a bad situation and puts your mind at ease while they deal with the ugly issues. Thank-you again, Jason, Shelly & Gail!"
"Big City" Quality with Small Town Values!
"Everyone will need a good lawyer sooner or later, and I for one am so thankful to have had Kohlmeyer-Hagen in my corner when I needed them. Outstanding service, professional approach, and tremendous results were what I expected (it is what I was paying for, after all). What I didn't expect was how Jason and Tom and the entire team really cared about me and my family on a personal level. Thanks a million guys."
Jason, Shelly and staff do SUPERB work!
"They are efficient, knowledgeable, caring, professional, and very enjoyable to work with! I would recommend Jason as an attorney without a doubt! He was great to work with, and he was able to get me the results I had wanted! Thank you for an excellent job done!"
Completely Satisfied with the Outcome of My Case.
"This law firm is very experienced, very effective, and yet very personable when interacting with me throughout my nerve-wracking legal process. I would hire the Kohlmeyer and Hagen Law Firm again without hesitation. And, I have since recommended them to several friends and acquaintances."
I Can't Thank Them Enough!
"I can’t speak highly enough of Mr. Kohlmeyer and his legal assistant Shelly. I felt like they gave my case the attention and time it needed, they were very responsive and honest with me the whole way through. I can’t thank them enough in getting me through one of the most difficult times of my life!"
