Kristen S. Scheuerman joined the Herrling Clark Law Firm in 2010 after clerking with the firm for over a year. In 2016, she was named a Partner. Kristen’s practice is primarily devoted to personal injury litigation, although she also handles municipal prosecution for a local municipality.
Originally from Appleton, Wisconsin, Kristen graduated from Appleton East High School and received her Bachelor of Arts from Lawrence University. After working in corporate America for just over five years, Kristen enrolled at Marquette University Law School and earned her Juris Doctorate in 2010.
Kristen’s practice also includes some appellate work in a variety of practice areas. In 2014, Kristen was involved in a case that was argued before the Wisconsin Supreme Court to determine the rights of injured parties to access UIM and UM insurance coverages during the “Truth in Auto” era. The high court ultimately held that insurance companies could not deny access to benefits in these types of cases. The outcome of Belding and its companion-cases remain to this day one of Kristen’s proudest achievements because of the impact those cases had on Wisconsin law and injured parties throughout the State.
Kristen has been recognized and named to the Wisconsin Super Lawyer “Rising Star” list for a number of consecutive years, and she was also named to the “Top 40 Under 40” membership by the National Trial Lawyers organization. She has on multiple occasions been an Avvo Client’s Choice for Personal Injury. Kristen earned additional accolades in 2015 and 2016 as a “Top 10 Attorney Under 40” for the State of Wisconsin by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys. In 2017-2018, she was again recognized and named to the “10 Best Attorneys” in Wisconsin by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. She is frequently named to the Wisconsin Super Lawyers list.
An especially meaningful accolade was Kristen’s inclusion in the Wisconsin Law Journal’s “2016 Women in the Law” honorees. 2016 also saw her success in a statewide election to be voted onto the Wisconsin State Bar’s Litigation Section Board. She also serves that Board as an officer and was asked in 2019 to serve an additional three-year term. Kristen has also worked on the section’s Blog Committee, which provides legal updates and education to the statewide bar.
In 2019, Kristen was asked to be a regular feature on a radio segment with WHBY’s Josh Dukelow. Dukelow added “The Lawyers” to his weekly scheduled program, “Fresh Take.” During the segment, which airs twice per month, Josh and Kristen, with other legal guests, address trending legal news stories, hot topics in the law, and provide an opportunity for legal education for the public. In 2020, Josh and Kristen also teamed up to put a fresh spin on Josh’s podcast “Civic Revival,” and the two record weekly discussions about the Rule of Law and returning to a civil discourse in American life.
Professionally, one of Kristen’s proudest memberships is her role with the Wisconsin Association for Justice. Kristen is actively and intimately involved in the organization and serves some role in almost every committee or group within WAJ. Kristen sits on the Board of Directors, is a Regional Officer, and serves as a member of the Executive committee. She is also one of the Program Chairs for the organization’s Education Program Committee. She is a past Chair of the New Lawyer’s Section and also the Women’s Caucus. She is the co-editor of The Verdict, the Wisconsin Association for Justice’s quarterly publication. Kristen’s dedicated involvement with WAJ allows her to maintain a critical working knowledge of legislative changes and proposed legislation that affect her clients’ rights. She is also proud to serve as a trustee for the Justice Fund, allowing her to add her voice to the political climate and work towards electing officials who share her commitment to the civil justice system and the best interests of her clients and injured people throughout Wisconsin.
Kristen and her assistants were wonderful. I felt so “taken care of” during the entire process. They were very responsive, thorough, and compassionate. Yet, Kristen was good about managing expectations and what this process could and could likely not accomplish. I felt “heard” and felt like the process of laying out what happened helped me regain some sense of confidence in a situation where I felt very powerless. I appreciated her explanations of our options and her quick work of everything on her end. In fact, I was surprised by how quickly things went once we chose a direction. It made a difficult time a little easier to manage. I have only good things to say about the entire office. They were friendly, professional, and so incredibly easy to work with.
“In the beginning, Kristen laid out everything we could expect with our case. She was patient with us as time went on, reminding us of the legal hoops we needed to go through. In the end, she really went to bat for us and, I believe, secured the best outcome we could have hoped for. She is smart, tenacious, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her legal services.
I am so glad I hired Kristen with Herrling Clark to help me through this difficult time in my life. Kristen was very kind and considerate. We put our trust in each other. I have learned a lot through this experience and will forever be grateful to Kristen and the Firm. I will highly recommend Herrling Clark to any of those people in need.
Attorney Scheuerman was very knowledgeable and efficient while representing me. She is a great person and down to earth. She is an attorney that will represent you well and guide you into making good decisions. It was enjoyable working with her and I would use her services again.
Attorney Scheuerman represented me for a personal injury matter. I was very satisfied with how she handled my situation. She handled both my brother’s case and mine and we both had favorable outcomes in the end. Kristen could not have been more helpful as she made sure I understood every step of the process. I certainly can’t complain with how she handled my case. Thank you Kristen for all the work you have done to make my life a happy one!
