Shalin previously qualified as a speech-language therapist. She has special interest in paediatric neurogenic communicative conditions. She continues to practice in this field and manages her private speech-language practice, assisted by a locum therapist.

In 2008, Shalin obtained a law degree and was later admitted as an attorney after serving articles-of-clerkship at a reputable law firm.  She has practiced law (both in Durban and Johannesburg) in the employ of prestigious South African law firms that have a national footprint, including Strauss Daly (Jhb) where she worked as Head of Department in the Banking & Securities Litigation department. Entrusted to senior positions of responsibility, Shalin honed her skills in various areas of law and devised effective work-flow processes to handle large volumes of files, while also managing large teams of staff.  Shalin later established her own legal practice with a view to offering comprehensive legal services at competitive rates.


In addition to other areas of law, Shalin has obtained considerable experience with Commercial Risk Assessments, Labour Law, Matrimonial Law, Divorce Mediation as well as Banking & Securities Litigation (including foreclosures and legal matters pertaining to mortgage & indemnity bonds, securities & suretyships, cession of bonds, vehicle & asset finance, and recovery on overdrawn accounts). She specializes in Litigation. Reassured by the legal and management experience she has acquired, Shalin is excited to participate in the transformation of the legal profession, especially as relates to black-owned and woman-owned businesses.
