Naomi receives top community award from Nottingham Law Society
Naomi De Silva, a prison law specialist at Cartwright King, has been named by the Nottinghamshire Law Society as the solicitor who has made the greatest contribution to the community in 2013.
As chair of the Nottinghamshire Junior Lawyers Division, Naomi has been working hard to encourage all members of the young legal community in the county to join and get involved, particularly those in smaller firms, legal executives and members of the bar.
She has also been a tireless supporter of the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) which aims to raise awareness and testing of young adults in order to avoid Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Naomi has succeeded in increasing awareness of the condition and has also raised funds for research by organising a number of charitable events including a bake off, cricket and football matches. In addition she is taking part in the Great North Run.
All this whilst practising in a particularly demanding area of the law where her clients, in the main, are high category and life prisoners with complex problems.
“This is a prestigious award and we are very proud of Naomi and all the hard work that she has done.”
said Cartwright King’s managing director Rupert Hawke.
“We actively encourage all members of staff to get involved in the community and support them in whatever they decide to do.”
