Diversity Thoughts

The political ascendancy of Vice President Kamala Harris has released hope in women across professions in which women and women of color are often underrepresented. While all Americans and women in particular are still assessing the meaning of a woman in the White House, Feinberg Sharma, P.C. celebrates the promotion and recognition of women in all professions, especially in the legal field.

 

At Feinberg Sharma, P.C. – a firm founded by two distinguished international leaders in divorce and family law – we understand the importance of advancement and continued education of women in law. Likewise, we recognize the paramount importance of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

 

Before her rise to the White House, Vice President Harris was a District Attorney, Attorney General, and a United States Senator. Similar to Vice President Harris – the first woman and the first Black and Indian American to be elected vice president – our esteemed partner, Molly A. Sharma, has quickly risen to the top ranks of divorce and family law practitioners.

 

Recognized as a Crain’s Chicago Notable Minority Lawyer, Notable Women Lawyer, and Leading Lawyer, Molly is a savvy, accessible, aggressive, and sensitive advocate for her clients facing the challenges of divorce. Molly represents business owners, doctors, lawyers, athletes, and other individuals of high net worth who are grappling with the complex financial implications of ending their marriage.

 

Molly has a special expertise in international child jurisdiction disputes, known as Hague convention cases and is recognized as an expert in these complex matters. Often, she lectures at international conferences on subjects about these Hague disputes. In these cases, Molly acknowledges and employs her Indian culture for the amelioration of the attorney-client relationship and the advancement of the case.

 

We also acknowledge Mr. Cholleti Vinay Reedy, who became the first Indian American presidential speechwriter for President Biden’s inauguration. With roots in Telangana, India, Mr. Reedy was also recently appointed as the Director of Speechwriting for President Biden.

 

Whether in the spotlight like Vice President Harris or thriving behind the scenes like Director Reedy, both acclaimed professionals hold historic significance as the first Indian Americans in their respective positions. While we are all masters at our profession and leaders in our chosen field, Feinberg Sharma, P.C. takes this moment in history to honor all women, women of color, and profusely applaud Molly’s contributions to divorce and family law.

 

With a standing ovation to all deserving accolades, we look forward to helping you during your time of need.
