Sharon Fitzgerald died peacefully on July 18, 2019 surrounded by her husband of 47 years, Jim, and her five children.
Sharon and Jim Fitzgerald founded The Fitzgerald Law Firm 1982. Over the course of her career, Sharon won 29 of the 30 appeals she argued in the Wyoming Supreme Court. The American Academy of Appellate Advocates recognized her skill and elected her to membership.
Her passion for law went beyond their work in individual cases. In 1998, Jim and Sharon established the Fitzgerald Foundation for Children to help improve public safety for young people located primarily, but not exclusively, in Wyoming.
Sharon was a stellar example of what an attorney should be: a thoughtful and diligent advocate for her clients, always doing her utmost to assist those in need.
Sharon’s accomplishments as a lawyer were many, yet her family was the most important thing to her. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She passed her family values on to her children who are close friends and always help and support each other.
Sharon’s love extended to all who came into contact with her. She always had a huge smile and welcomed everyone who walked through the door. She made the entire Fitzgerald Law team feel like part of the family.
She will live on in our hearts forever.
