Kristen S. Scheuerman joined Weiss Law Office, S.C., in October 2022 after spending more than a decade at a large Fox Valley law firm, where she practiced as a Shareholder. Kristen’s practice has always been focused on personal injury and civil litigation, and before joining Weiss Law Office, she also served as a municipal prosecutor.
Throughout her career, Kristen’s practice has also included appellate work in a variety of 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. The outcome of Belding and its companion-cases remains to this day one of Kristen’s proudest achievements because of the impact that decision had on Wisconsin law and injured parties throughout the State.
