Both of these qualifications have assisted him in understanding and interpreting the law and its effect on society as it relates to Social Justice.

Mr. Naidoo comes from a background of Local Government, focusing primarily on local law infringement matters, particularly parking matters. He has assisted in the Melbourne Magistrate’s Court on behalf of Local Government in dealing with numerous cases relating to parking as well as animal infringement matters.

Under the supervision of Mr. Pilai, Mr. Naidoo has been involved in driving, infringement and firearm matters whilst recently being exposed to family intervention orders as well. Moving forward, experience will be furthered within the various areas of the criminal law umbrella, as indicated by Mr. Pilai’s vast experience within the field.
