The Barristers is the young lawyers section of the DBA and is open to attorneys who have been admitted to practice for ten years or less. The Barristers is active and service-oriented, with a focus on service to the community and service to the bar. The organization provides new lawyers with opportunities to expand their leadership skills, pursue community service projects, attend educational seminars, and network with other young lawyers.

Shell concentrates her litigation practice in resolving disputes that arise during real property acquisition and development, including environmental enforcement and compliance, remediation, corrective action, environmental due diligence, and tax incentives and financing. Her clients include finance companies, banks, real estate investors, municipalities, and various other corporate commercial litigants.

She is active with several Detroit-based charities, including service as a volunteer mentor with VIP Mentoring, as a member of the Angel Tree Committee for Matrix Human Services, and as a member of the Young Donor Committee for Loyola High School. She is also active with the Detroit Regional Chamber and is a member of the Chamber’s Energy & Environment Committee.
