Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker in the Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis. I have been with the firm since October 2019. I work under the supervision of director Zofia Duszynska in a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers.
I assist solicitors and trainees in the team by taking instructions from clients and providing advice in relation to a broad range immigration cases. I assist vulnerable clients seeking international protection with their asylum applications and appeals, and those held in immigration detention who are seeking bail. I also handle cases involving human rights matters, particularly those involving breaches of Article 3 and 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and challenges to unlawful policies and practices by way of judicial review. Most of the cases that I undertake are publicly funded (legal aid)
I have a passion to help people and have always been part of different volunteering projects within my local community and also abroad.
I am a native French speaker and I also speak Spanish. I am happy to take instructions from clients in these languages at initial consultations.
