Profile / Experience

I am a Family Law specialist with over 18 years experience, dealing exclusively with private family law matters. Having trained with one of the top legal law firms in the country and having worked with award winning law firms, I have gained extensive experience in all complex family law matters.

The numerous testimonials from my previous clients are examples of the high standard of commitment, professionalism and quality of work I strive to achieve with each and every client of mine.

In more recent years I have specialised in International divorce, financial and children matters. I frequently offer voluntary advice at the charity "Rights of Women".<

  • "I found Shahzea to be highly professional, knowledgable, and well versed...Shahzea worked hard to gather the facts, review the papers and to become fully appraised of the background to the action. Shahzea has proved herself to be very conscientious and proactive...she possesses a rare ability to sift through the mountains of facts and fiction always present in acrimonious divorces especially where children are involved.

    She is a rare combination of highly effective lawyer and sympathetic person who can see both sides of every argument and is able to nurture, coach and guide her clients to their successful outcomes"
