Elizabeth Schuerman has quickly made a lasting impression with her firm for her outstanding work and the level of maturity shown in her interaction with clients. She is extremely passionate about the local community and volunteers with Heritage Place and the United Way of Central Indiana. The medical malpractice defense and litigation attorney is also active in the Indiana State and Indianapolis bar associations.

My long-term career goal is
to keep finding joy in my work. Right now, I really love what I do. I’ve got great clients and I’m challenged every day. This is incredibly satisfying and I hope I never lose this enthusiasm for my career.

The three words that best describe me are
energetic, passionate and loyal.

If I weren’t an attorney, I’d be
a bookstore owner.

In 2012, I’d like to
continue to improve in every aspect of my life. Obviously, I want to work toward being the best possible advocate for my clients, but I also want to invest time in myself, be a good partner to my husband, and be a good mother to my son. You know – I want to do everything!

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
be open to any and all experiences within the legal profession. Even if it is not the type of law that you envision yourself practicing, I’ve found that being able to say “I’ve done that before,” is always a positive thing. And you might just be surprised by what you enjoy!

My escape from work is
spending time with my family and running.

My mentor has taught me
the value of balance in my life. Investing in myself and spending time with my family are truly important and will help me be a better attorney.

  1. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
