Ms. De Luca began her legal career in 2011 as a prosecutor at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office in Boston, Massachusetts.

"I came to Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP because I have dedicated my career to advocating on behalf of those disempowered and mistreated by individual and societal injustices. There is no firm whose values and goals align more closely with my own than Sanford Heisler Sharp’s. "

Our commitment to securing justice and providing the best representation possible is reflected in a commitment to diversity within our own firm. At Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, we know better than to think the best attorneys look alike, sound alike, think alike, or live alike. What matters is talent, and we hire the best talent available.

As a result, our team more accurately mirrors America. Women, minority, and/or openly gay lawyers make up the majority of our staff. A passion for social justice unites our team - we all work to use the power of law to help create and enforce a more just society.

Caroline De Luca is Of Counsel to Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, a national law firm with offices in New York, Washington, D.C., California, Tennessee, and Maryland. She earned her bachelor’s degree from McGill University and her law degree from Boston University School of Law.

Ms. De Luca was ultimately promoted to the unit that handles the most serious domestic violence and sexual assault cases in Suffolk County. She has tried dozens of cases to verdict and has worked closely with hundreds of survivors of domestic and sexual violence over the course of her career.
