Sharon Lopez, Esq.
Sharon López started out her post collegiate professional career as a social worker. She saw the challenge of poverty and she decided to become a community-based lawyer advocate for the poor. Her first legal job was at Central Penn Legal Services where she worked for nine years. She left to work at the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), a statewide non-profit organization that advocates for safety, autonomy, and restoration of domestic violence victims. In 2006 López left PCADV to form a private law firm dedicated to advancing civil rights, Triquetra Law. Lopez continued her commitment to public interest work by serving on the board of Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing advice and representation to low-income individuals who have criminal records that hold them back from achieving their social and career goals.
López became the 123rd President of the Pennsylvania Bar Association in 2017-2018. She was the fourth woman, the first Latina, the first mother, the first ex legal services attorney, and the first MLK Intern to serve as President of the largest voluntary state bar association in Pennsylvania.
López works on both the state and local level to improve the legal profession’s diversity and inclusion of women, minorities, and LGBTQ+ members in the legal profession. She is the managing partner of her firm, Triquetra Law ®, located in Lancaster, PA.
