    Navpreeth is developing an interesting junior family law practice, with an approach and understanding that is enhanced by the period she spent as an in-house advocate prior to coming to the independent Bar. Her case load particularly focuses on private and public law children work. Her instructions have included care cases of guardians and non-molestation orders. She also has experience of care work and has received instructions in case management hearings for guardians in private law matters.
