Kristen Scheuerman Knutson joined the Herrling Clark Law Firm in 2011, after clerking with the firm for over a year. Her practice is primarily devoted to personal injury litigation, although she does handle a limited number of post-divorce family law cases.
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 appellate work in a variety of legal 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 in the State. Although not a frequent part of her practice, Kristen handles matters in federal court and in addition to local district courts, she is admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Judicial District.
In 2014, Kristen was recognized as a Wisconsin Super Lawyer "Rising Star" and was named to the "Top 40 Under 40" membership by the National Trial Lawyers organization. Kristen earned additional accolades in 2015 as a "Top 10 Attorney Under 40" for the State of Wisconsin by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys.
Kristen is an active member of the Wisconsin Association for Justice (formerly the Wisconsin Association of Trial Lawyers), where she is currently serving as one of the Program Chairs for the organization's Education Program Committee. Kristen's involvement with WAJ allows her to maintain a working knowledge of legislative changes and proposed legislation that affect her clients' rights.

I endorse this lawyer. Kristen is smart, detail oriented and a hard working advocate for her clients. I've found her to be a worthy adversary in that she is true to her word, extends the customary professional courtesies and chooses her battles wisely. I would recommend Kristen for any injury, business or family law related litigation matter.
