Naomi O'Rourke


Personal Injury


Naomi is a Paralegal in JMW’s renowned Personal Injury team. Naomi works closely with fee earners within the Personal Injury team, with a particular focus on holiday claims. She is responsible for preparing and drafting key legal documents as cases progress.

Naomi joined the team in September 2015 shortly after graduating from the University of Sheffield in July 2015. Naomi was awarded a degree in Law with First Class Honours and received the Vaughan Bevan Memorial Prize, a prize awarded annually for performance in final examinations within the School of Law. During her time at university, Naomi particularly enjoyed the freedom and challenge of writing a legal research paper in her final semester.  

Prior to joining JMW Naomi developed her legal experience by volunteering at the University of Sheffield’s legal advice clinic where she enjoyed being part of a hard working team of students. In her final year at university Naomi also took on the role of a student tutor which involved taking first year law students for seminars.

In her spare time Naomi loves to go on holiday and going out for meals. She likes to keep active and regularly tries out new gym classes from ballet to boxing and completed her first half-marathon in 2014 raising money for Kidscan, a cancer charity for children.  She also enjoys walking her dog Ruby after a day at work! 

Why did you join JMW?

I first heard about JMW whilst at University as I researched firms that provide services within the areas of law I found myself most interested in, and it became clear to me that JMW is a thriving firm within the North West. When my twin sister joined the firm in 2014 my interest in JMW grew, it sounded like a firm that was continuously growing yet managed to maintain a friendly and personal environment that rewarded hard work and commitment. I wanted to begin my legal career after finishing university and JMW was a firm I was keen to be a part of. Since joining the firm, its positive reputation and welcoming environment have certainly been confirmed and I am excited to see what my future at JMW holds!
