Sharon C. Rutberg opened her neighborhood estate planning practice in 2014 to help individuals and families find the peace of mind that comes from having an estate plan in place.

Sharon graduated from Swarthmore College with honors and Northwestern University School of Law, where she served on the Law Review and received the Order of the Coif (top 10%) cum laude. She practiced corporate and government law in Washington, D.C., before heading west to Seattle. As a D.C. lawyer, Sharon worked for Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering (now WilmerHale), the U.S. State Department, and the Office of the White House Counsel.

Sharon is a member of the Real Property, Probate & Trust (RPPT) Sections of the Washington State Bar Association and King County Bar Association, and serves on the editorial board of the Washington Bar’s RPPT Newsletter. She also belongs to the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), and the Washington Association of Elder Law Attorneys  (WAELA).

Sharon volunteers with the International Refugee Assistance Project and serves on the Board of the Chamber of Commerce in Queen Anne, where she lives. When she is not practicing law, Sharon enjoys walking her dogs, hiking in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and spending time with her husband and young adult children.
