Shanika Varga-Haynes is a solicitor predominantly based in our Leeds office but also works from our other Yorkshire offices including Wetherby and Harrogate.
She completed her LPC at the College of Law in York in 2014, where she earned a distinction in all modules. Prior to that, she graduated from Keele University with a 2:1 LLB (Honours).
Shanika undertook extensive pro-bono work while studying for her LPC. She took part in programmes that invested time in young adults from underprivileged backgrounds who were seeking careers in the law.
She also volunteered at the Personal Support Unit at Leeds Combined Court, where she gained invaluable experience working with family law cases and assisting Litigants in Person.
Outside of work, she is a keen cook who enjoys the theatre and travel. She is attempting to learn how to speak Hungarian.
