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 went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts from Lawrence University (although she is also proud to have spent a short time at the University of Missouri-Columbia- Go Tigers!). After working in corporate America for just over five years, Kristen enrolled at Marquette University Law School and earned her Juris Doctorate in 2010.

Throughout her career, Kristen’s practice has also included some appellate work in a variety of 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 specific types of cases. The outcome of Belding and its companion-cases remains to this day one of Kristen’s proudest achievements because of the impact that decision had on Wisconsin law and injured parties throughout the State.

Kristen has been recognized and named to the Wisconsin Super Lawyer List 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.

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. In 2019, Kristen was asked to serve an additional three-year term, and her service will end in 2022. However, before she finishes her final term, Kristen will serve as Chair of the Section.

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. One of Kristen’s greatest passions is legal education, both for other members of the Bar and for the public so the opportunity to team up with Dukelow was especially meaningful. Given their shared passion for education and civil public discourse, in 2020, Josh and Kristen collaborated to put a fresh spin on Josh’s podcast Civic Revival. Josh and Kristen record weekly discussions about the Rule of Law and returning to a civil discourse in American life. Kristen also takes any opportunity she can to speak about legal issues and has been a guest on a number of other legal podcasts and also participates in Law Talk with Hayley Tenpas as a part of her Focus Fox Valley series on WHBY.

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; she is a Past Regional Officer; and she serves as a member of the Executive committee. Kristen served for a number of years as one of WAJ’s Program Chairs for the organization’s Education Program Committee, which furthered her goal and passion for legal education. She is a past Chair of the New Lawyer’s Section and also of the Women’s Caucus. In 2020, she was named co-editor of The Verdict, the Wisconsin Association for Justice’s quarterly publication. In 2021, she was selected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Civil Justice Education Foundation, which also supports the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Notorious Servant Award and endowment, which Kristen created after the Justice’s passing in 2020. Kristen was appointed and nominated to serve as WAJ’s Treasurer for the 2021-2022 year, which will also give her the opportunity to lead the organization as its President in 2026. At that time, Kristen will serve as just the 6th female attorney to hold that title in the organization’s 70 year history.

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.


Kristen and her team were very understanding regarding my experience. They worked around my busy schedule, and I could have confidence in them knowing they were doing their best for me. Kristen was kind, and even bought a gift for my newborn when I had him. Excellent service, thank you!


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!
