About Homa

Learn Homa’s areas of practice.

Homa Sayyar Woodrum has been licensed to practice law in the State of Nevada since October 2007.  She graduated from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas in May 2007 with her Juris Doctorate.  Prior to law school she earned her BSBA in International Business at UNLV and has lived in Nevada since mid-2000 after relocating from Wasilla, Alaska.

Originally from the United Kingdom, Homa is a proud U.S. Citizen.  Her first name is a variant spelling of the Persian name for a mythical bird of paradise not unlike a phoenix.  She enjoys outdoors activities like running and bicycling (though not very fast in either pursuit).  She and her husband (also an attorney), have two children.

Excellent
Homa was very professional and kind during a very difficult time. She took the time to really listen to my concerns and wishes. Unlike some firms the billing was very reasonable. I highly recommend Homa if you want an individual who truly cares about a client.

Very cool, nice attorney. She is helpful and she tries always to understand your problem and case. I could always call and get to speak to Homa. I was able to ask questions before I hired and paid for my attorney.

Taking care of our Grandchildren
Wow, with Homa everything turned out just as she said. Her knowledge guided us through the process of us receiving the guardianship of our two Grandchildren. No drama just the straight truth, one step at a time.

Small Claims Complaint
Homa S. Woodrum Esq. repersented me in a case against a contractor for improper installation of a kitchen counter top and damage to other parts of my kitchen. We went to litigation and Homa handled the case getting the defendent to take full resposibility for his actions and agreeing to make payments mailed to her by the middle of the month. He kept his agreement for six months then went into default. Homa didn't let it slide, she immediately filed with Justic Court for the remaining balance. She fights like a mother Lion protecting her Cubs!
