Megan Shoell

Megan Shoell is an associate with Schaerr | Jaffe LLP. Her interest in appellate law began in law school, where she won first place in a national moot court competition and succeeded in winning a grant of certiorari from the United States Supreme Court as part of a SCOTUS litigation clinic.  Following law school, she clerked for Judge Jay Bybee on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, where she witnessed firsthand the importance of effective brief writing and appellate advocacy.  That experience now guides her practice as she strives to persuasively frame and present legal issues.
