Anne Schmiege grew up on a potato farm outside of Antigo, Wisconsin. After taking five years off between college and law school to work at an insurance company and to teach English abroad, she graduated from Hamline University School of Law in 2003, summa cum laude. Following graduation, Anne practiced law at Doar, Drill & Skow in New Richmond for nearly 14 years, becoming a partner with the firm in 2010. She enjoyed her time at that firm, but eventually decided to step out on her own, founding Schmiege Law Office in 2017.
Throughout her years of practice, Anne has focused her practice almost exclusively on the areas of family law and workers compensation. Concentrating her practice on just these two areas has allowed Anne to develop insight, experience and expertise in these practice areas. Anne has tried many cases throughout the years and has also been involved in matters before the Wisconsin Court of Appeals and the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Anne’s free time is usually spent with her two daughters, going to parks, swimming and watching children’s productions at local theater companies. Anne has also always loved to travel, and she now enjoys dragging her daughters with her on various excursions.
