Shona has been a well-respected member of the South Australian Legal Profession for a period approaching 20 years.
In 2012 Shona founded Douglas Hoskins Legal with Jim Douglas (who has since retired). Since that time, the firm has experienced continued growth such that it now employs a total of 11 lawyers, who work collaboratively with Shona on various matters.
Shona specialises in all aspects of family law, estate administration, estate litigation, wills and civil/family disputes. She has extensive litigation experience and has been involved in many complex trials and high-profile matters. She is often sought after to act in multi-party estate disputes and for third parties in family law matters, involving competing commercial interests or equitable claims.
Shona prides herself on her common sense approach and on her ability to find a solution for her clients in the most difficult of circumstances. For this reason, she is considered to be one of the most experienced negotiators in the State, successfully resolving a large number of family law and estate mediations each year.
Shona has been recognised in the Doyle’s Guide for family law and estate litigation each year since 2017, up to and including 2022. She has presented academic papers for Legal Wise and has previously been a member of the Family Law Committee for the Law Society of South of South Australia.
