About me

Megan focuses her practice on Estate Planning, including Wills, Trusts, Children's Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives.


Prior to opening the Gebhardt Law Office, Megan had a litigation practice at a Seattle law firm. She graduated cum laude from Seattle University School of Law and is admitted to practice in Washington State and the Western and Eastern Federal District Courts of Washington. She has taught an Introduction to Law course at Cascadia Community College and speaks at Continuing Legal Education seminars at the state and national level. She received her B.A. magna cum laude from St. Mary’s College of California.

She was born and raised in Everett, Washington. She and her husband, an Ohio native, reside in Seattle with their son born in August 2010 and enjoy everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
