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. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  2. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  3. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.

  4. As usual, John is "spot-on." The subtle but poignant points he makes are numerous and warrant reflection by mediators and users. Oh but were it so simple.

  5. ACLU. Way to step up against the police state. I see a lot of things from the ACLU I don't like but this one is a gold star in its column.... instead of fighting it the authorities should apologize and back off.
