Litigation lawyer Noe Merfeld


Noe Merfeld brings significant trial experience from public service to her practice representing public and private clients at all stages of litigation.

Noe Merfeld is an associate in Pacifica Law Group’s Litigation practice group. A former prosecutor and leader in developing community-based alternatives to incarceration, Noe brings significant experience with jury trials, motions, discovery, and project management to her work supporting Pacifica’s Litigation and School Districts clients.

Prior to joining Pacifica, Noe served as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney at the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. There, she handled misdemeanor and felony cases at all stages, including investigation, charging, pre-trial, negotiations, trial, and sentencing, and has taken several cases to jury verdict. She led the inaugural King County Community Diversion Program, and Therapeutic Alternative Diversion Program, where she worked closely with the Department of Public Health-Seattle & King County, the King County Executive’s Office, and community organizations. The Community Diversion Program is King County’s first adult felony diversion program, where individuals charged with non-violent property and drug crimes are connected with community-based services instead of having criminal charges filed, and crime victims are provided with loss recovery funds.

During law school, Noe served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Richard A. Jones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington and worked as a policy intern for the Washington Defender Association. She was the recipient of Seattle University School of Law’s Calhoun Fellowship, which focuses on equal justice issues including juvenile justice, racial disparities in sentencing, and diversion. Before attending law school, Noe served as a National Leadership Consultant for Chi Omega Fraternity, advising student leaders on risk management and chapter operations. Noe is proud to serve as the President of the Loren Miller Bar Association, and serves as a mentor and mock trial coach to students at Seattle University School of Law.
