Shauna has a passion for guiding clients through often difficult situations with empathy and compassion whilst delivering client focused results.
Shauna has practiced in Invercargill since she was admitted to the bar in 2009 and joined the AWS legal team in 2017. Shauna has a varied background, but specializes in Estates and Litigation.
Shauna is an experienced advocate with no fear of taking matters through the Court system when necessary, however her particular strength is in achieving negotiated outcomes.
“There are always those cases that will never settle out of a Court room, they need to be determined by a Judge. In all other cases negotiated outcomes best serve all parties as the parties then hold the power to determine the outcome of their own cases”
Shauna has conducted defended hearings in the District and Family Courts, regularly appeared for a variety of matters in the High Court and has extensive experience in Judicial Settlement Conferences and mediations.
Shauna spends her spare time with her two little boys and her family and being a born an bred southlander loves getting out and about in the Southland environment.
