Amandeep Sidhu is quoted in a December 2008 Virginia Lawyer article about diversity in the Virginia Bar. Mr. Sidhu was a teenager living in Virginia when he began wearing a turban as a symbol that he had adopted the Sikh faith, and he has continued to do so as a practicing lawyer. He states that a Sikh American "may feel at a young age, 'How could I possibly practice law wearing the turban?'" But having learned to carry himself with "confidence and strength," he believes that "there is nothing that can stop me from doing what I want to do. I'm able to feel comfortable in my skin." Mr. Sidhu and his wife live in Washington, DC.
