Todd Shugart is a skilled trial lawyer who fights tirelessly for his clients. He has much experience trying cases throughout all phases of litigation – pre-trial motion practice, bench and jury trials and appellate practice. Prior to joining Scholle Law, Mr. Shugart served as an Assistant United States Attorney. As a federal prosecutor, Mr. Shugart handled complex and voluminous white-collar cases involving fraud, cyber intrusion, trademark and copyright violations as well as large-scale drug conspiracies and violent crime. After attending law school and prior to serving in the Air Force, Mr. Shugart worked for the nationally renowned law firm of Spence, Moriarity & Schuster. There he worked closely with Gerry Spence, the founder of the Trial Lawyer’s College and Bob Schuster who has mentored Mr. Shugart throughout his legal career. He brings this significant experience and his skills as a seasoned advocate and negotiator to Scholle Law to advance our clients’ interests by identifying and tackling tough issues. His longstanding passion for seeking justice and fighting on behalf of those that have been hurt, wronged or treated unfairly is at the core of Scholle Law’s approach to client representation.
Mr. Shugart proudly served his country as an infantryman with the Army National Guard and later as an attorney with the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General’s Corps. As a JAG officer, Mr. Shugart was called upon to provide timely and accurate legal advice to commanders facing important decisions impacting national security, as well as to military service members and their families facing difficult personal issues. He had several different assignments on active duty to include being hand-selected to serve in the position of lead defense counsel at the United States Air Force Academy. During that time, his defense team won two difficult and highly publicized jury trials, saving the Air Force careers of two young cadets.
Mr. Shugart graduated from Baker University in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and from the University of Wyoming College of Law in 2001.
