Sofia Shaheen

Graduate Paralegal

Sofia joined Stephensons as a graduate paralegal in the Wills and probate department in 2018.

Prior to joining Stephensons Sofia successfully completed her MLaw (masters in law) degree at UCLan which is a combination of an LLB and LPC. Sofia decided to do her LPC alongside her undergraduate degree as she has always known that she would like to qualify as a solicitor. Whilst completing her degree, Sofia often volunteered as she is passionate about helping others. She volunteered as a student legal advisor and worked within the law clinic at UCLan.

Sofia's passion for assisting others is one of the reasons she applied for a graduate role at Stephensons. The ethos and philosophy of the firm stood out to her and she wanted to begin her career in an environment with a social conscience.

Sofia is also an accredited mediator and therefore possesses key listening and dispute resolving skills.

In her free time Sofia enjoys being outdoors and exploring nature through hikes. She also enjoys cooking different cuisines.
