Shahnaz has always been passionate about fairness and justice. Her decision to go to law school and become an attorney, while raising her 10-year-old son, fulfilled a lifelong dream and is a testament to her drive and work ethic.
Born in Amman, Jordan and raised in Dallas, today Shahnaz serves as counsel to Weems Hazen Law from her home in Phoenix, specializing in the area of Family Law. She also brings additional expertise in General Mediation and Family Law Mediation, and is the founder of Achieve Mediation, LLC.
Her diverse background, which includes a J.D., a BA in Anthropology, master’s in Legal Studies, and professional experience in both education and social work, gives her unique insight into many of the cases she handles.
It is the relationships and advocacy that bring the most joy to her work. When she sees a client able to truly breathe, relieved to have a trusted professional on their side working to solve their problems – those are her moments of inspiration.
