About Shire Solicitors

Sarah Khan-Bashir MBE – MANAGING Partner

Sarah Khan-Bashir MBE – A solicitor, highly committed to putting something back into the community. Sarah established Shire Solicitors in 2007. The practice specialises in Family Law and also offers advice and representation in Immigration, Property, Personal Injury and Wills and Probate.

After qualifying as a solicitor, Sarah joined the Office of the Force Solicitor for West Yorkshire Police. One of the many initiatives she was involved with was the creation of a protocol to be followed by the courts and partner authorities in order to case manage civil applications brought by the police to the magistrates’ courts. This model was adopted by several police forces. Sarah has also trained officers from the NCIS in cultural awareness programs and provided specific training in relation to the Muslim communities in West Yorkshire. 
Sarah is currently the Chair of  Mosaic Yorkshire and also sits on its National Advisory Board. Mosaic is a Princes’ Trust Charity which delivers mentoring programs within schools and prisons in order to raise aspirations and enhance the employability of young people.  She is also a founding trustee on the board of the Bradford Police Museum which endeavours to highlight the history of the Bradford Police Service.
Sarah is married with three daughters and lives in Bradford West Yorkshire. She was awarded the Eleanor Roosevelt Award by Brunel University for her services to Law and in 2014 received an MBE from the Queen for services to charity.

As a lawyer, Sarah’s passion is and always has been to assist those who need help the most. Her work within the community has highlighted the need for more awareness around the registration of religious marriages in order to protect the legal rights of vulnerable women who may not be aware that their religious marriages are not recognised by English law. Shire Solicitors has taken part in  TV programmes highlighting these issues.
