Herrling Clark Law Firm, Ltd., located in Appleton, Wisconsin, is pleased to announce that Attorney Kristen S. (Knutson) Scheuerman has been promoted to partner.

February 2016

Herrling Clark Law Firm, Ltd. is proud to announce the promotion of Kristen S. (Knutson) Scheuerman to partner. After her 2010 graduation from Marquette University Law School, Scheuerman joined Herrling Clark as an associate attorney in 2011, following a year-plus long clerkship with the firm.

Although she initially enjoyed a multi-faceted practice, Appleton attorney Kristen S. (Knutson) Scheuerman now devotes her legal practice almost exclusively to personal injury litigation. Scheuerman also handles appellate work in a variety of legal areas, and has participated in a case before the Wisconsin Supreme Court regarding insurance coverage during the “Truth in Auto” era.

Scheuerman graduated with her B.A. degree from Lawrence University, and after working in corporate America for just over five years, she went on to obtain her J.D. from Marquette University Law School. Scheuerman is admitted to handle cases in all Wisconsin federal district courts and she is also admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Judicial District.

Scheuerman has been recognized as a Wisconsin Super Lawyers Rising Star for two consecutive years since 2014, and last year she was named a nationally ranked “Top 10 Under 40” attorney by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys. Just prior, The National Trial Lawyers organization named Knutson a “Top 40 Under 40” lawyer, and she earned an AVVO “Client’s Choice Award” for her outstanding work within the personal injury arena. Scheuerman is passionate about representing injured parties and is proud to have recently tried a complicated construction premises liability case with her partner, John D. Claypool, resulting in a $1.8 million verdict.

Scheuerman is currently serving as president of the Outagamie County Bar Association. In her capacity as Bar President, she spearheaded the local “Bar Gives Back” initiative to generate fundraising for local Outagamie county charities. She is also an active member of the Wisconsin Association for Justice, where she serves on the Education Program Committee as program chair as well as acting as Vice-Chair of the organization’s Young Lawyers Division. Scheuerman was recently selected to author the cover story for The Verdict and she is a frequent presenter at WAJ continuing education seminars.

Herrling Clark Law Firm President, Kevin Lonergan, is pleased to announce Scheuerman’s promotion. “On Saturday, February 6th, the Partners at Herrling Clark Law Firm proudly voted unanimously to elevate Kristen Scheuerman to Partner/Shareholder status. In five short years, Kristen has achieved what many lawyers take decades to accomplish. She knows the law, and is hard working, energetic, and passionate. She has learned that fighting tirelessly for clients is one of the most fulfilling parts of being an attorney. The decision to make her a partner was a ‘no brainer.’”
