She Went From Riding in Her Dad's Tractor to Practicing Ag Law in the City

Discovery with Brianna J. Schroeder

Published in 2020 Indiana Super Lawyers magazine

I can’t go a day without … COFFEE.

If you were in my office, you’d … see pictures of farms, pigs and cows, but no file cabinets.

When I was a newbie lawyer I … was blessed to have superb lawyer mentors in my firm.

My pre-trial routine is … over-prepare, drink coffee, hug my babies, wear fun shoes.

When I started, I wish I knew … how important work-life balance is.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a history professor.

My earliest memory is … riding in the tractor with my dad.

The SCOTUS justice I’d like to meet is … RBG, of course.

My favorite Twitter feed is … besides my own (@schroederindy)? Bon Appétit (@bonappetetit) is a balm for this crazy world. In May? @indy500pics.

On weekends I … would like to drink wine, go to concerts and travel, but really spend more time changing my kids’ diapers.

My favorite song lyric is … “Tell the ones who need to know, we are headed north.”—The Avett Brothers’ “I and Love and You.”

The three people I’d invite to dinner are … Churchill, Lincoln and Elizabeth I.

I wish I had invented … the internet.

If I had a morning show, my co-host would be … Nina Totenberg.

The last TV show I binge-watched was … Chernobyl on HBO.

Nothing cheers me up like … live music. My last concert was Trevor Hall and John Butler Trio.

My guilty pleasure is … ridiculous memes. I loved all the Peloton ad ones!

If I won the lottery I’d … retire to South America.

The question I wish people would stop asking is … “Are you the secretary?”

My courtroom walk-up song would be … AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.”
