'I come to work knowing I am making a difference to my clients and I feel truly privileged to be in this role.'
Sha Hotchin is the Branch Manager of Shine Lawyers' Reservoir branch where she leads a team of legal professionals to provide guidance and advice for members of the local community who have suffered injustice.
Upon graduating, Sha worked as a WorkCover Claims Officer for the Victorian Fire Brigade. This role exposed Sha first hand to the devastating impact of work-related injuries. She became inspired to fight for the rights of injured workers. Sha moved to a small city firm where she built a strong foundation in representing the little guy. She also spent 5 years running large, complex court cases for an international plaintiff litigation firm before joining the team at Shine in 2016.
Recently, Sha's dedicated work ethic and legal expertise were recognised and she became a Law Institute of Victoria Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law.
'This course has enabled me to become a better lawyer, and being a better lawyer means I can be a better representative for my clients.'
In her role as Branch Manager, Sha combines her passion and dedication for standing up for the little guy with her legal acumen to ensure each client's case is run with the utmost care and skill. She considers it an honour to assist clients in regaining their independence and will go above and beyond to ensure justice is achieved for all.
