She qualified as a Solicitor in 2002, gained accreditation and membership of the SRA Children Panel in 2007 and became a Partner in 2010. Naomi now leads a team of skilled and experienced family lawyers advising and representing clients from all over the world. 

Recent experience:
  • Representing children both separately and through their Court appointed Children’s Guardians ensuring that they have a voice in Court proceedings that will decide their future.
  • Supporting and representing grandparents wanting to obtain a Special Guardianship Order for their granddaughter who had received a negative assessment by the Local Authority which was subsequently challenged and overturned.
  • Representing a mother accused of causing serious injuries to her daughter which were later shown to have been the result of actions by another and obtaining an order for her daughter to be returned to her care.
