Shayna A. Beeksma is the founder and principal of Beeksma Law. She received her J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2011 and was called to the Ontario Bar in 2012. Shayna summered and articled at the Toronto office of one of the largest law firms in Canada. She then practised with a boutique commercial and estate litigation firm in Burlington, and then subsequently continued her practice at a prominent Hamilton firm before opening Beeksma Law in early 2018.
Regularly appearing before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and having argued cases before the Divisional Court, the Ontario Court of Appeal, and the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board, Shayna is a strategic, creative and effective advocate.
A passionate innovator and entrepreneur, Shayna specializes in estates law (comprised of estate litigation, estate administration and estate planning), while also incorporating corporate and real estate law into her practice. While her clients value her knowledge, experience and legal skills, it’s her firm’s customer-centric approach that sets Beeksma Law apart.
Shayna truly cares about her clients and is committed to achieving the best possible results while providing affordable hourly rates to make legal services more accessible for all.
Shayna has always been a community-minded advocate, which is what led her to the field of law. Her dedication to helping others and to improving the legal profession is obvious through in her involvement with the:
- Hamilton Law Association
- Hamilton Lawyers’ Club
- Halton County Law Association
- Ontario Bar Association
- Advocates Society
- Christian Legal Fellowship
- Canadian Association of Black Lawyers

In her spare time, Shayna and her family enjoy long drives in the country, traveling, exploring their community, and supporting small, local businesses (especially craft breweries and local restaurants). A foodie at heart, you can often find Shayna enjoying a coffee and treat at one of Hamilton’s fabulous independent coffee shops.
