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. A traditional parade of attorneys? Really Evansville? Y'all need to get out more. When is the traditional parade of notaries? Nurses? Sanitation workers? Pole dancers? I gotta wonder, do throngs of admiring citizens gather to laud these marching servants of the constitution? "Show us your billing records!!!" Hoping some video gets posted. Ours is not a narcissistic profession by any chance, is it? Nah .....

  2. My previous comment not an aside at court. I agree with smith. Good call. Just thought posting here a bit on the if it bleeds it leads side. Most attorneys need to think of last lines of story above.

  4. He must be a Rethuglican, for if from the other side of the aisle such acts would be merely personal and thus not something that attaches to his professional life. AND ... gotta love this ... oh, and on top of talking dirty on the phone, he also, as an aside, guess we should mention, might be important, not sure, but .... "In addition to these allegations, Keaton was accused of failing to file an appeal after he collected advance payment from a client seeking to challenge a ruling that the client repay benefits because of unreported income." rimshot

  5. I am not a fan of some of the 8.4 discipline we have seen for private conduct-- but this was so egregious and abusive and had so many points of bad conduct relates to the law and the lawyer's status as a lawyer that it is clearly a proper and just disbarment. A truly despicable account of bad acts showing unfit character to practice law. I applaud the outcome.
