Novlet Levy qualified as a solicitor at Goodman Ray in December 2018. She was previously a paralegal working within Goodman Ray’s child protection department and assisted in the representation of parties to public law family proceedings as well as private law children proceedings. Novlet was nominated and shortlisted as a finalist for the LAPG’s Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year award in 2021.
Novlet graduated from the school of law at Queen Mary University of London in 2013 and completed her LPC at the University of Law in 2015 after being awarded a full scholarship from the Law Society.
Novlet’s work to date has largely consisted of representing parents and family members in care proceedings. She has acted for a number of extended family members who oppose plans of adoption or long-term foster care. She also regularly acts for parents in private children cases with entrenched issues between the parents or histories of domestic abuse and parental alienation. Novlet concentrates on giving children the best opportunity to remain or at least linked with their families which she feels is crucial for a child’s identity and self-worth. Novlet has a keen interest in children’s rights.
In December 2020, Novlet was elected to the Association of Lawyers for Children’s (ALC) executive committee where she continues to chair the sub-committee for young lawyers.
