Sahar has a strong passion for criminal law.
During the course of her Juris Doctor, Sahar undertook internships at the Public Defenders, the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) and Redfern Legal Centre, where she assisted solicitors and barristers in a range of complex legal matters. Sahar recognises that preparation is key when conducting criminal matters, and is dedicated to supporting the team at YEL to ensure we get the best possible outcome for our clients.
Sahar also has highly developed legal research and analytical skills as a result of her recent experience working as a Judge’s Tipstaff which means that she is able to provide invaluable assistance to our solicitors on complex legal matters.
Prior to joining the legal industry, Sahar spent five years working as a marketing communications professional. She understands that the legal process can be complicated and daunting, and utilises her communications skills to explain legal concepts in a simple, approachable way.
