Molshree “Molly” A. Sharma, a partner at family law firm, Feinberg Sharma, was recently honored by being named to the 2018 Chicago’s Notable Women Lawyers list by Crain’s Custom Media, a subsidiary of Crain’s Chicago Business.
This is the second year for the award, which is recognizing 150 women who are considered to be Chicago-area legal industry leaders that serve with distinction as advocates for their clients.
“I am delighted and grateful to be recognized for the work I feel so passionate about, as I assist my clients during some of the most difficult times in their lives,” Sharma said. “My ultimate goal is always to achieve the best possible outcomes for them, whether they are parents, business owners, professionals or homemakers.”
Among Sharma’s legal specialties are international jurisdictional issues in sensitive matters relating to parental abduction and custody. She is a published author who has organized numerous conferences on the Hague Convention regarding civil aspects of child abduction, and has given lectures in Washington D.C. for lawyers, parents, and professionals on international custody matters.
Sharma also has expertise in the financial intricacies of high-net-worth divorces, which require high-level financial experience with assets in real estate, investment accounts, business valuations, tax and retirement benefits.
Other accolades of Sharma’s include being consecutively named as an Illinois Super Lawyer, in addition to an Emerging Lawyer, and a Rising Star Attorney by Chicago Magazine. She is a contributor to the American Bar Association’s Family Advocate publication, as well as Family Lawyer Magazine.
Sharma believes strongly in giving back to the community and provides pro bono legal services to in-need Chicago residents on an ongoing basis. She has been recognized by the Chicago Bar Association during its pro bono week, received the Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Distinguished Service Award, and the Cook County Department of Corrections Volunteer Award.
Sharma began practicing law in 2004 and joined prominent Chicago family law attorney Joy Feinberg to form Feinberg Sharma in December of 2017. Feinberg Sharma serves the Chicagoland area with an office in the Chicago Loop.
