Partner in the law office of Charmoy & Charmoy in Fairfield and Stamford, Connecticut, Sheila Sinha Charmoy's practice focuses on family law, including divorce, custody issues, drafting pre and ante nuptial agreements, divorce mediation, post judgment proceedings, and appellate proceedings. She regularly appears as a Court appointed Guardian Ad litem in contested custody cases; as well as a Court appointed Special Master. She is a mediator, collaborative lawyer, as well as a litigator. Sheila works regularly in both the Bridgeport and Stamford Superior Courts.

Sheila's parents immigrated to the United States from India in the mid 1960s. She was born in Hinsdale, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, and grew up in many places where there were very few minorities. Often, she was often the only minority in the room. Sheila has observed both the incredible growth of the Asian population in Connecticut and their inability to get adequate representation in the judicial system. One of Sheila's primary goals is to help ensure that Asian Pacific Americans are adequately represented in our Courts, our government, and our educational system.

Sheila is a Commissioner for the Asian Pacific Islander Affairs Commission of Connecticut, where she was recently elected Secretary. She is also a member of the board for the South Asian Bar Association of Connecticut, and serves as Vice President of the Executive Board of SNEHA, an organization that assists South Asian women, particularly victims of domestic violence. Sheila graduated from the University of Bridgeport in 1995 and Quinnipiac University School of Law in 1999, and is an active member of the Greater Bridgeport and Connecticut Bar Associations, as well as the Collaborative Divorce Attorneys of Fairfield County. Reported cases: Sweeney v. Sweeney, 75 Conn. App. 279 (815 A. 2d 287) (2003); Chyung v. Chyung, 86 Conn. App. 665 (862 A. 2d 374) (2004).

I hired Sheila Charmoy to sort out some post-judgment issues with my ex-husband. She is a conscientious, highly knowledgeable, experienced family attorney, who always responded to all my questions, concerns, emails and phone calls. She kept me updated on the status of my case, and was always well prepared, and performed extremely well in the courtroom. She works hard and has a high level of integrity that made me trust her completely. I recommend her without reservation. N.S.
