From a litigant to a lawyer, Shah spent 10 years it took to get the divorce in shaping herself as the foremost divorce lawyers in India.

Ex Files, now part of the Judicial College syllabus, is a humorous take on divorce stories.
While talking to Optimist, Shah noted, “Over the last few years, human relationships and especially, marriages have evolved a great deal. This complex reality makes it imperative that we realise the circumstantial changes around us, and work toward addressing the challenges in a bid to prevent a complete breakdown of marriage or a bitter divorce.”
Regarding her association with Netflix’s Firebrand, she remarked, “I’m honoured and proud to be associated with the movie and grateful to Aruna Raje for trysting me in doing justice with the legal content of the movie.”
