Hella V. Scheuerman

San Antonio, Texas

Hella is originally from Managua, Nicaragua, and speaks Spanish fluently.  She obtained her law degree from St. Mary’s University School of Law in 1997.  She was admitted to practice in Texas in 1997.  Hella frequently counsels and represents clients in both State and Federal Courts.  She is licensed in all Texas State Courts, as well as the Western, Southern and Northern Districts of Texas of the United States District Courts. 

Hella has 20 years experience in handling all types of civil litigation.  She regularly sues big corporations and insurance companies for their wrongdoing. She has obtained significant trial experience as lead attorney in more than 50 jury trials to verdict.  Few lawyers of her generation can claim such an accomplishment.  Hella is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  In Texas, less than 5% of practicing attorneys have achieved Board Certification in Personal Injury.  Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in personal injury as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law. There is no doubt that Hella knows her way around the courtroom and her opponents consistently recognize this fact.

Hella has a deep passion for the law and strives to provide strong legal representation to those who need it most due to the negligent and wrongful conduct of big corporations, insurance companies, and individuals who don’t respect the rights of the public.  She is a community safety advocate who seeks to use the legal system to eliminate the dangerous activities of negligent defendants and protect our community.
