Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor in the Immigration Department of Duncan Lewis based in the firm's Dalston office. I have over 10 years experience in legal practice and my specialism is in Immigration and Nationality Law.

I have dealt with a substantial quantity of immigration matters concerning Nationality Law, European Economic Area (EEA) citizens and their family members, asylum (including detained clients), Entry Clearance applications, naturalisation and settlement applications, domestic violence applications and Human Rights applications (Articles 2, 3 and 8). I also assist clients in Dublin III Regulation matters and bail applications.

I have extensive experience in advocacy, representing clients at their appeal hearings at the First Tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration Asylum Chamber and working with counsel in preparation for hearings at the Court of Appeal.

I represent both private and legally aided clients. I have assisted many vulnerable members of the public such as children, disabled adults, clients with mental and medical difficulties, detained persons and also victims of trafficking, torture and domestic violence.

I am fluent in Polish (mother-tongue), Italian and Spanish. I also have intermediate knowledge of Portuguese and French. I apply my linguistic skills to assist a broader spectrum of clients and speak where possible to clients in their native language.

Testimonials

  • "Aleksandra was the best solicitor that I have ever had the privilege of working with, and I have worked with many. I heard Duncan Lewis were good but hadn’t realised just how good, until I worked with Aleksandra. She has a way of explaining complicated legal text and process to younger clients in a way that they get things. Aleksandra was able to prepare a frightened traumatised young person to be confident and state clearly all that was required of her.

    You would expect your solicitor to be professional but you do not expect them to be passionate and empathetic. Aleksandra and her team were able to be honest from the beginning explaining possible outcomes and the probability of each. This is critical to young clients. To be able to interject humour and professionalism is a skill. Needless to say as the manager of a Children’s Home working for a charity with a long history of working in the youth justice system, I find Duncan Lewis exceptional, and I will be sending all our clients her way"
    - Karen Douglas, Launch Pad, New Choices for Youth - April, 2018

  • "I would like to say a massive thank you for all the support, despite the fact at times I gave you a terrible headache not coming to you beforehand and not providing you whatever documents you required. Without you sending a correct application to the Home Office things would have been very complicated." - Client, Nehal - January 2018.

  • "Aleksandra is an extremely professional and focused solicitor who always endeavours to deliver great results for her clients, she is a pleasure to work with." - Abru Basharat, Barrister at 10KBW - September 2017

  • "Thank you very much for your support at my hearing of today. You did a great job." - Client, Fatoumata - June 2017

  • "Thank you for the work and dedication you are putting in this case. It is not going unnoticed and we very much appreciate it." - Client, Joel - May 2017

  • "To be honest, I'm so sad that you are no longer working with me. I felt comfortable and appreciated how you were handling my case. I wish you all the best in your work and believe you will go a long way. You are simply the best." - Client, Palesa - October 2015

  • "This is to extend my sincere gratitude to you for supporting Michael to receive his leave to remain status in the UK. The family owes a special thanks to you. According to Michael“Aleksandra has been extremely helpful! In fact she has gone beyond duty for my sake. I love her approach to duty. She is very sincere and duty loving.
