Merrick Williams, Senior Partner

Merrick started his career as a lawyer working for one of Minnesota's top injury attorneys. He learned that through dedication and hard work, momentous results can be achieved for his clients. He enjoys the court room and has litigated numerous cases in Minnesota.

Caring and aggressive are hallmarks of his practice. He understands the fear and anxiety every day, ordinary, people feel when forced to face the intimidation and immense resources of a giant insurance company. He'll carefully explain and simplify complex legal issues so you can make the most informed decision about your claims. At the same, time he'll take an aggressive approach to dealing with the insurance company to ensure the maximum result and recovery for you.

Merrick was raised out west but came to Minnesota in the mid-90s to attend law school at William Mitchell College of Law. Since his arrival, he has grown to love the beauty of Minnesota and its culture, and now, proudly, considers himself a Minnesotan.

Unique to his life experiences, Merrick lived in Taiwan for two years and learned to read, write and speak Mandarin Chinese. Most significantly, he spent months living in small villages where agriculture was the sole means of sustenance and people struggled to survive. He witnessed, first-hand, the true meaning and value of hard work, and what it takes to survive in the face of a bad crop or a natural disaster. This experience deepened his appreciation for the difficulties good people experience despite efforts to improve their lives.

Mr. Williams is admitted to practice in the Minnesota state courts and United States District Court of Minnesota. He enjoys membership with the Minnesota Association of Justice, Minnesota State Bar Association, Hennepin County Bar Association and American Association for Justice.

Blake Bauer, Senior Counsel

Blake Bauer started his legal career while still in law school as the Judicial Law Clerk for Judge Joanne Smith in Ramsey County Minnesota. While working as a law clerk, Blake handled thousands of cases and several jury trials, providing him with courtroom and trial skills. After several years of working for the government, Blake joined Marso and Michelson, P.A. and quickly became the managing partner of the firm.

At Marso and Michelson, Blake represented consumers who had trouble paying their bills, typically their medical and credit card debts. He defended hundreds of state court lawsuits for consumers and brought Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) claims on behalf of clients in Federal Court against harassing third-party debt collectors. Blake has always enjoyed practicing law in this area because he can make a real difference in his clients' lives, and helps them in their time of need.

In 2017 Blake joined Fields Law Firm, bringing the Marso and Michaelson Consumer Law clients with him. This move was a perfect fit because the two firms focus on areas of law that are dedicated to helping people in need. In fact, Blake has dedicated his entire career to helping individuals who are dealing with life's unanticipated circumstances. Blake understands and appreciates the struggles people experience when they are are unable to work, and knows how crippling it can be emotionally, financially, and physically to not be able to support your family.

Blake has lived in the Twin Cities area his entire life. He played basketball at Saint John's University and graduated cum laude with a double major in political science and psychology. Blake went on to study law at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. Blake excelled at William Mitchell, academically ranking in the top tier of his class, he was on the William Mitchell Law Review as both a Staff Member and as an Editor, and obtained a full time law clerk position for a Judge in Ramsey County, Minnesota while completing his Juris Doctorate.

Mr. Bauer is admitted to practice in the United States District Court of Minnesota, United States Bankruptcy Court of Minnesota, United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, and Minnesota state courts.

Leslie Briesacher, Attorney

Leslie began her career in solo practice, in the areas of family law and non-profit business formation.

Fields Law Firm
Scott Ferriss, Attorney

Scott Ferriss comes to Fields Law from a prominent workers' compensation defense firm where he spent four years representing large insurance companies and employers in workers' compensation claims. Through this experience, he gained knowledge of the way the insurance companies handle claims and their tactics to delay and deny claims.

His insight into the way insurance companies handle claims is invaluable for his clients. Scott knows the approach of the defense and helps guide his clients through all the hoops and hurdles the insurance companies make the injured go through. His compassion and ability to communicate effectively make him a strong advocate for his clients.

Scott spent his first year of college at Colorado State University studying civil engineering. However, he quickly learned that the math involved in engineering was not as interesting as his political science class. Upon transferring to Augsburg College in Minneapolis, he began his studies in political science and economics.

Scott Ferriss, Attorney

Scott Ferriss comes to Fields Law from a prominent workers' compensation defense firm where he spent four years representing large insurance companies and employers in workers' compensation claims. Through this experience, he gained knowledge of the way the insurance companies handle claims and their tactics to delay and deny claims.

His insight into the way insurance companies handle claims is invaluable for his clients. Scott knows the approach of the defense and helps guide his clients through all the hoops and hurdles the insurance companies make the injured go through. His compassion and ability to communicate effectively make him a strong advocate for his clients.

Scott spent his first year of college at Colorado State University studying civil engineering. However, he quickly learned that the math involved in engineering was not as interesting as his political science class. Upon transferring to Augsburg College in Minneapolis, he began his studies in political science and economics. Scott was then selected to continue his studies at American University in Washington, DC for a year before returning to Augsburg.

Following his undergraduate studies, Scott served as Legislative Assistant to a United States Congressman in Washington, DC covering legislative issues that included transportation, education, environment, healthcare, and telecommunications. After nearly five years of working for the Congressman, Scott and his then betrothed, Kristen, decided to go to law school and attended William Mitchell College of Law.

Scott is admitted to practice in all Minnesota State Courts and the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. He is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association.

Merrick Williams, Senior Partner

Merrick started his career as a lawyer working for one of Minnesota's top injury attorneys. He learned that through dedication and hard work, momentous results can be achieved for his clients. He enjoys the court room and has litigated numerous cases in Minnesota.

Caring and aggressive are hallmarks of his practice. He understands the fear and anxiety every day, ordinary, people feel when forced to face the intimidation and immense resources of a giant insurance company. He'll carefully explain and simplify complex legal issues so you can make the most informed decision about your claims. At the same, time he'll take an aggressive approach to dealing with the insurance company to ensure the maximum result and recovery for you.

Merrick was raised out west but came to Minnesota in the mid-90s to attend law school at William Mitchell College of Law. Since his arrival, he has grown to love the beauty of Minnesota and its culture, and now, proudly, considers himself a Minnesotan.

Unique to his life experiences, Merrick lived in Taiwan for two years and learned to read, write and speak Mandarin Chinese. Most significantly, he spent months living in small villages where agriculture was the sole means of sustenance and people struggled to survive. He witnessed, first-hand, the true meaning and value of hard work, and what it takes to survive in the face of a bad crop or a natural disaster. This experience deepened his appreciation for the difficulties good people experience despite efforts to improve their lives.

Mr. Williams is admitted to practice in the Minnesota state courts and United States District Court of Minnesota. He enjoys membership with the Minnesota Association of Justice, Minnesota State Bar Association, Hennepin County Bar Association and American Association for Justice.

She moved to Grand Forks, North Dakota where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice from the University of North Dakota and subsequently, and her Juris Doctorate from the University of North Dakota School of Law. After 7 years of living in Grand Forks, she decided it was time to move back to the Twin Cities.

Incidentally, Fields Law piqued her interest to expand the fields she practices in to continue helping those who need assistance through Long-Term Disability, Social Security Disability, and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Scott Ferriss, Attorney

Scott Ferriss comes to Fields Law from a prominent workers' compensation defense firm where he spent four years representing large insurance companies and employers in workers' compensation claims. Through this experience, he gained knowledge of the way the insurance companies handle claims and their tactics to delay and deny claims.

His insight into the way insurance companies handle claims is invaluable for his clients. Scott knows the approach of the defense and helps guide his clients through all the hoops and hurdles the insurance companies make the injured go through. His compassion and ability to communicate effectively make him a strong advocate for his clients.

Scott spent his first year of college at Colorado State University studying civil engineering. However, he quickly learned that the math involved in engineering was not as interesting as his political science class. Upon transferring to Augsburg College in Minneapolis, he began his studies in political science and economics. Scott was then selected to continue his studies at American University in Washington, DC for a year before returning to Augsburg.

Following his undergraduate studies, Scott served as Legislative Assistant to a United States Congressman in Washington, DC covering legislative issues that included transportation, education, environment, healthcare, and telecommunications. After nearly five years of working for the Congressman, Scott and his then betrothed, Kristen, decided to go to law school and attended William Mitchell College of Law.

Scott is admitted to practice in all Minnesota State Courts and the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. He is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association.
