Shamila is a professional, dedicated and reliable lawyer. I would like to commend her for being thorough throughout my case and more importantly, being patient with me. I recommend her to anyone who needs legal advice! Keep up the great work Shamila!

Sean Hong, Digital Manager

Shamila has been a wonderful, warm and empathetic person to have dealt with. Through the course of our working relationship, she made it a point to be communicative and accessible, and sufficiently addressed every query I had through the course of the proceedings. Additionally, she was proactive and capable in preempting any questions or concerns I might have had, and took the time to walk me through the answers to those. I’m extremely grateful to her for making the process painless and simple for me. I would highly recommend Shamila to anyone looking to work with her!

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Shamila personally, and despite the inherent difficulties of the circumstances, it all turned out to be a more than pleasant experience – because of her diligence and thoughtfulness. Surprising for her young age, she displays a rare skill in handling tenous situations with a balance of authority and diplomacy. Even when things did not go as planned, she manages to give me the confidence that things will not only be done, but they be done properly and satisfactorily.

Shamila is a bright, young legal professional. she is friendly, knowledgeable and intelligent. She is a professional with huge potential. I can see that she is going to scale new height in the coming years. If you are looking for sound legal advice or a lawyer with pleasant deposition, yet knowing her stuff well, Shamila is the one you can approach.

The first word that comes to mind when I think of Shamila in a business setting: Meticulous. Apart from working harder than anyone I have ever seen, she pays attention to the smallest details, and is ridiculously efficient in everything she does, and somehow she is bundled as an emphatic and kind soul who never made me feel like I was working for her, rather working with her, which might be common to hear, but rare to experience. Any client would be fortunate to have a lawyer like Shamila at their corner, not just for her legal prowess, but for who she is as a person. 

Sandesh Hamir, Technical Director

Highly recommended! Ms Shamila is very professional, efficient and being very patient with me. I’m very grateful to her for assisting me to resolve my issue.

Elly Su, Customer Care Officer
