Shelly Banihashemi

I have been practicing family law exclusively since my call to the Bar in 2011. Prior to opening my own practice in 2021, I clerked, articled and subsequently worked as an associate at two prominent boutique family law firms in the GTA.

With over a decade of experience, my practice incorporates all aspects of family law, including separation and divorce, property division, custody and access, child and spousal support, marriage contracts, cohabitation agreements, separation agreements and adoptions. I have experience working with high conflict parenting issues and high net worth clients.

In law school, I excelled at and received distinction in the areas of alternate dispute resolution and negotiations. In 2015, I completed the requisite training to practice in the Collaborative Family Law process. I have incorporated this aspect of family law into my practice, along with other alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation and arbitration.
