Shakira takes pride in helping survivors of abuse get the justice they rightly deserve. She joined Shine Lawyers in 2018, working as a Solicitor with the Abuse Law team. Her experience in this specialised area of law has shown Shakira that her clients can feel burdened carrying these past experiences, so honest and clear communication can help them relax, ensuring the legal process is as smooth as possible.
“It’s a privilege to give my clients the opportunity to speak up and be heard, often when they thought no one would ever listen or believe them.”
Prior to completing her Bachelor of Laws and Commerce (Accounting) and Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from Bond University, Shakira developed a broad range of experience, undertaking internships at various legal practices on the Gold Coast and in Malaysia. Shakira can assist members of the community through her fluent Farsi (Persian). She is especially motivated to help clients whose language could otherwise prevent them from accessing legal advice.
Shakira enjoys the variety and challenges that come with each of her client's cases, embracing the opportunities to constantly diversify and expand her experience.
