Jason D. Schall



A seasoned litigator, Jason began his career as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice where he was trained to stand up in court and fight for his client. Today, Jason represents individuals and companies in and out of the courtroom throughout Colorado, his native Texas, and in federal courts and arbitration hearings across the United States.

All too often, Jason’s cases involve fraud, theft, and general accusations of lawlessness – cases well suited to his background, both as a prosecutor and an investigative litigator. He has achieved significant victories for clients in disputes involving natural resources, oil and gas, real estate, construction law, contract, personal and professional injury, and violations of the Colorado Consumer Protection Act.

And given his background with the DOJ, Jason also serves clients facing life-changing federal criminal charges. Jason’s “insider” knowledge of how federal criminal cases are investigated and prosecuted and his first-hand experience understanding which arguments federal judges find convincing is invaluable to helping clients achieve great outcomes. And if he doesn’t know the answer, Jason keeps in contact with his colleagues within the Department of Justice who will know how to help.

People choose to work with Jason because he understands what they’re going through on a human level, is attentive to their needs, and knows all too well what others are capable of.

At work Jason enjoys helping people and businesses solve their legal problems. At home, you’ll find him rooting on his Texas Aggies, carefully minding a barbecue pit, or contemplating his family’s next adventure.
