Kristen S. Scheuerman

Kristen S. Scheuerman joined the Herrling Clark Law Firm in 2010 as an Associate Attorney, after clerking with the firm for over a year. In 2016, she was named a Partner/Shareholder. 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 in 2014. She was an Avvo Client’s Choice for Personal Injury that same year. 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. She also serves that Board as an officer, previously as Treasurer, and currently the acting Secretary. She 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 address trending legal news stories, hot topics in the law, and provide an opportunity for legal education for the public.

Professionally, one of Kristen’s proudest memberships is her role with the Wisconsin Association for Justice (formerly the Wisconsin Association of Trial Lawyers). 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 a contributing editor to 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.
