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 sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
