Sahrish K. Soleja
Associate

The bankruptcy process is not easy but having a professional who is personable and works diligently on your case can make the process better. I work with my clients to help them achieve the best outcome for their case.

Sahrish Soleja joined Gray Reed’s Corporate Restructuring & Bankruptcy Department after serving as a term clerk to Judge Morris for the Northern District of Texas and separately as a term clerk to (Ret.) Judge Brown for the Southern District of Texas. Through these clerkships, Sahrish gained valuable insight into bankruptcy matters and how judges consider matters before them, giving her a unique advantage when advocating for her clients.

As a Gray Reed bankruptcy attorney, Sahrish works with debtors, creditors, official committees, trustees and other parties in interest, and represents clients in all facets of bankruptcy, creditors’ rights and federal bankruptcy-related litigation matters. She is also invested in increasing diversity within the practice of bankruptcy law, creating opportunities for diverse members and promoting education on the inclusion of diversity.
