Parsippany, NJ, October 28, 2015 – Day Pitney is pleased to announce that Rasika Chakravarthy was chosen as one of The New Jersey Law Journal's 2015 Diverse Attorneys of the Year.

“Rasika is a rising star. She is not only active in the firm’s diversity and inclusion initiative, acting as a mentor to summer apprentices and high school student interns participating in our Barbara Rosenthal Program, but also in the greater New Jersey legal community where her tremendous leadership of the South Asian Bar Association of New Jersey is helping to create a legal community that takes full advantage of its diversity,” said Day Pitney Director of Diversity & Inclusion Asker Saeed.

The New Jersey Law Journal selected and profiled 21 lawyers that are representative of the legal community’s involvement of diversity in all forms. 

“While the selection process was not easy, we feel this year's honorees indisputably are among the top legal talent in New Jersey,” states The New Jersey Law Journal.

Among her many achievements, Chakravarthy, an associate in Day Pitney’s commercial litigation department, is President of the South Asian Bar Association of New Jersey, through which she mentors South Asian law students and junior attorneys who are involved with the organization.  While in law school, Chakravarthy was a law student advocate with the International Women’s Human Rights Clinic at Georgetown University Law Center, where she advocated for women’s health and marital rights in Kenya.  She also served as Editor-in-Chief of the Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics and President of the South Asian Law Students Association.
