One of the reasons Sharon S. Moyer chooses to continue to practice law after more than 30 years is that she enjoys the challenge of being entrusted with a problem and working with the client to strategize the best approach to get the client’s desired result. Not only is it frequently an intellectual challenge, but it requires team work, a willingness to re-evaluate the approach as the process unfolds, a realization that a lawsuit is not always the right way, but being a tough litigator when it is.
Sharon focuses her practice on two main areas—employment law and probate litigation. In the employment arena, Sharon handles everything from drafting employee handbooks and employment agreements, negotiating severances, helping human resources professionals and business owners make difficult personnel decisions, handling discrimination, wage and hour, overtime, misclassification and other claims both at the administrative level and in court.
With respect to probate litigation, Sharon handles guardianships and conservatorships, as well as helps families protect their family members and assets in the event of trust or estate litigation, and exploitation claims.
Sharon got her social work undergraduate degree at Marquette University in Wisconsin and her law degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has been privileged to work with excellent law firms over the years, including Beus, Gilbert and Morrill, Quarles and Brady, and Sacks Tierney. She transitioned to the ASU Alumni Law Group to supervise recent graduates from ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law in their provision of high quality, low cost legal services.
