Cheryl Sobeski-Reedy/Luzerne County (Wilkes-Barre)


“I would go into courtrooms and there wouldn’t be women lawyers there, and I would say, ‘I’m going to keep coming in here so that they get used to seeing a woman.’ I remember thinking that at the time — ‘I’m not going anywhere, I’m going to keep coming.'” In Episode 3, Cheryl Sobeski-Reedy discusses her experience as a young female attorney at a time when the profession was comprised mainly of male attorneys. Cheryl also discusses her work during the aftermath of the “Kids for Cash” scandal in 2009, the opioid epidemic, and how to sustain a career in public defense for over twenty years.

  1. It is so very reassuring to know that there is someone so educated as well as compassionate to look after our youth. Cheryl is a wonderful example for our young woman and all of our young people in general that hard work can pay off if you keep looking forward. Thank you for sharing her story with us.
