Jason D. Schall



As a former federal prosecutor, Jason was trained to stand up in court and fight for his clients. Along the way, Jason’s path to practicing law in Colorado has taken him many places, each of which shaped his focus on what makes the profession so rewarding: helping clients solve their problems. Jason’s practice involves the defense of businesses, individuals, and their interests, in both criminal and civil courts throughout Colorado, Texas, and the federal system. 

After graduating from New York University School of Law, Jason was selected as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas (2006 to 2010) and later the Northern District of Texas (2010-2014). As an Assistant U.S. Attorney, Jason learned the intricacies of federal court while investigating and prosecuting all manner of federal offenses: narcotics trafficking, human trafficking, immigration, racketeering, child exploitation, and economic offenses such as cybercrimes, identity theft, money laundering, and bank and wire fraud. In addition to developing a nationwide network of colleagues within the U.S. Department of Justice, Jason received daily training on which arguments federal judges find convincing and how federal agents and prosecutors think – rare and invaluable experience that he now brings to bear for the firm’s clients.

Like many native Texans, Jason moved to Colorado as soon as he could. In 2015, Jason entered private practice by joining a venerable Denver law firm, putting his skills and training to use for Fortune 500 clients facing commercial litigation, internal investigations, and all manner of interactions with federal and state investigators.

And it was also where Jason grew to know his office neighbor, John M. Bowlin. Today, their combined strength forms the heart of Bowlin & Schall LLC, a comprehensive litigation practice based in Colorado but with roots across the nation.

When he’s not fighting for his clients, Jason loves three F’s: family, football, and food. In the fall, you’re sure to find him religiously watching his Texas A&M Aggies or carefully minding a barbecue pit.
