The Firm

Top Family Law Firm | Feinberg Sharma (FS)

For more than 40 years, the partners of Feinberg Sharma, a renowned divorce and family law firm, Joy M. Feinberg, Molshree “Molly” A. Sharma, Gia M. Conti, and Jennifer S. Tier have been providing exceptional service and obtaining superior results for their clients.

Feinberg Sharma evolved over many years of friendship and mentoring. Joy and Molly’s former partner, Kathleen Roseborough went to law school together. Both found their own paths, but shared goals within the practice – guiding clients with confidence, intelligence and grace. Listening to the client’s objectives rather than imposing their own was unique at the time. Viewing the field differently than their predecessors, while still achieving leadership in family law, mentoring became a way of guidance for both. Molly grew with Kathleen learning that cases are driven by psychological forces as well as the pendulum that is the law, balancing an ever-changing society.

Joy has practiced law in Illinois since 1977. Named as one of The Best Lawyers in America; as one of Top 20 Chicago Divorce Lawyers by North Shore Magazine; elected as 1 of 100 to the American College of Family Trial Lawyers and awarded every other honor in the field, Ms. Feinberg is recognized by her peers for the quality of her work and the results she obtains for her clients. She has prepared and delivered numerous IICLE programs and is a frequent presenter at local, national and international conferences and panel discussions. Of particular note is Ms. Feinberg’s endeavors to educate divorce lawyers about the psychological issues their clients may face and the financial and tax issues that greatly impact every case. She is equally adept at the negotiating table and in a variety of alternative resolution venues.

Molly is a savvy, accessible, aggressive and sensitive advocate on behalf of her clients who are facing a variety of challenges due to an impending divorce or post-decree matter. Her professional expertise is in working with business owners, professionals such as doctors, lawyers, athletes and/or individuals of high net worth who are grappling with the complex financial implications of ending their marriage. A substantial portion of her professional skills relates to handling complicated family law matters that require high-level financial experience with assets in real estate, investment accounts, business valuations, tax and retirement benefits.

Gia Conti’s edge comes from her unparalleled understanding of the recently overhauled Illinois domestic relations laws. Her strong litigation skills give her an advantage over other practitioners, especially those in family law. Her focus began in general civil litigation and has transitioned over the years to the complexities of high net worth asset divisions, business valuations, maintenance, as well as the intricacies of parental decision making (custodial issues) and parenting time disputes. She has successfully tried and settled issues in multi-million dollar estates as well as those holding top management positions. She is comfortable representing those in the “C” suite or their spouses. Gia has a robust record of success in domestic and international child custody issues. Gia has noteworthy expertise in maintenance disputes, valuation work and income imputation.

Jennifer is a highly skilled litigator and negotiator who handles all stages of divorce, parentage disputes and prenuptial agreements. Jennifer’s clients especially appreciate her calm professionalism, insightfulness and support through this difficult process. Jennifer enjoys the analysis and complexity of the interface between the legal and emotional issues in family law cases. She also has a strong affinity for the complex financial and tax matters which relate to divorce. Jennifer’s peers and clients know she will be diligent and detail-oriented.
