Qualifications: LLB (First Class Honours)
As a born and bred Southlander, there’s something special about growing up to go into a career where you get to serve your community. Shania knows the region like the back of her hand, and the people that come with it. She speaks their language. It’s what makes her such a good lawyer and also what led her to wake up one day and decide it was exactly what she was going to do with her life.
After spending three consecutive summers as a law clerk while completing her law degree with First Class Honours at the University of Otago, Shania joined the PRlaw team full-time in 2021. With experience in employment, conveyancing, civil and relationship property law, one of the best parts about her job is getting to work with people face-to-face and ease any of the anxiety they’re feeling about the situation they’re in. When it comes to her approach, it’s all about being personable, clear and reassuring. After all, her job is to take the pressure off so you don’t have to carry it.
When Shania’s not in our Invercargill office, her spare time is spent with her partner and their Border Collie, Wilbur, enjoying all that the city and its surroundings have to offer.
