Jerry Moberg & Associates announces name change

The reflection of a growing firm

Posted on Aug 13, 2019
Jerry Moberg & Associates (JM&A) is pleased to announce their name change to Moberg, Rathbone, Kearns. The name reflects the growing firm with the company name now being shared with Mary Moberg Rathbone and Colin Kearns, partners with the firm.

Mary Moberg Rathbone
“I guess you could say I was born into this profession. As a baby, it was not uncommon to be cared for by the superior court clerks while my father was on the bench. My ‘education’ in the law began at age 4. The pre-school had a policy requiring all kids to take naps-something I was not willing to do. Instead of requiring me to conform to an otherwise reasonable rule, my dad took me to work with him. I still vividly remember sitting on stacks of law books coloring post-it’s with a shiny silver pen. I would attend court hearings as a young child and had to be reminded more than once that wood benches are not jungle gyms. It would be 25 years from the time of careening benches until I was invited to sit second chair with my father at my first trial. Entering this partnership with my father, brother and childhood family friend is a dream come true. I look forward to the success this new venture will bring and the experience of working alongside my greatest mentors."

Colin Kearns
“It is hard for me to express how honored and excited I am to be partnering with Jerry, one of my family’s closest friends and one of my most important mentors. The reputation of this firm – of both its staff and attorneys - is outstanding. I hope our legal footprint on both sides of this state will be felt for years to come."

Jerry Moberg
“I am excited to start this new chapter practicing alongside my son, daughter and close family friend. This change will further create the ability to provide legal services across the state of Washington. I am thrilled to expand my ‘country lawyer’ law practice.”
