Shona Senior Godfreys Law Christchurch

After many years working in the public sector, Shona was motivated to return to university as a mature student and become a lawyer.


Having grown up watching her parents take care of her grandparents, Shona understands the value of quality advice and solutions around Elder Law. Shona is proudly a founding member and convenor of the New Zealand Law Society Canterbury Westland Branch Elder Law Special Interest Group. She also considers herself fortunate to be in a position where she can now help look after her parents as they age.


Shona also enjoys helping others as an independent trustee of the Petersgate Counselling Centre Board of Trustees which runs the Petersgate Counselling Centre in Upper Riccarton. The Petersgate Counselling Centre employs 25 counsellors who provide subsidised counselling for low income people and families.


At Godfreys Law, Shona appreciates the client-focussed culture. Meaning, our main priority is finding practical solutions and taking care of your legal issues.


In addition to Elder Law, Shona also specialises in Wills, Trusts, Estates, Property Conveyancing, and general legal problem solving.


Outside the office, Shona has an interest in gardening, home renovations, ballroom dancing and hunting for fine china to add to her collection.
