Recognizing her accomplishments and legal abilities as a lawyer, Sapna has been recognized every year since 2015 as an “Emerging Lawyer” by Leading Lawyers, which determines the top lawyers who are 40 years or younger and have proven themselves professional, ethical and experienced at an early point in their legal career. The distinction of being an “Emerging Lawyer” has been earned by fewer than 2% of all lawyers licensed to practice in Illinois. She was also named an Illinois Super Lawyer “Rising Star” for five consecutive years (2012 – 2016).

In 2019, Sapna was recognized as one of the “Forty Under 40” Illinois Attorneys to Watch by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company, publishers of Chicago Lawyer magazine and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin (CDLB). This award recognizes individuals who have been nominated and selected as “the most talented young attorneys practicing in Illinois." Additionally, in 2020, Diversity MBA Magazine named Sapna one of the “Top 100 Under 50 Executive and Emerging Leaders,” a recognition awarded based on nomination and based on Diversity MBA’s determination of those individuals who have made outstanding achievements in community, leadership, and education.
