Profile / Experience

I am a solicitor in the Immigration department at Duncan Lewis having joined in August 2012 as a caseworker.

I have extensive experience of asylum cases involving vulnerable, detained and non-detained adults and minor applicants from various parts of the world. I have assisted on a variety of Judicial Review matters, including challenges to decisions of the Secretary of State for the Home Department to unlawfully detain and remove Claimants, and in cases being heard before the Upper Tribunal, High Court and Court of Appeal. These have included mentally ill Claimant’s challenging their fitness for detention and fitness to fly, cases involving victims of torture as well as victims of modern slavery and human trafficking, removals to European Countries under the Dublin Regulation, removals and deportations of European Economic Area (EEA)/EU nationals.

I have previously undertaken voluntary work at the Lambeth Law Centre. I have level 2 IAAS accreditation which means I have shown that I have specialist knowledge and experience in the area of Immigration law and can advise and assist publicly funded clients under the company's legal aid contract.

Testimonials

  • "I worked with Aleksandra on the latest Italy test case and I was really impressed with the standard of work she produced. She was a key part of the team that finally secured a positive result in this litigation. Her work was of a very high standard throughout and she demonstrated repeatedly how committed she was to ensuring that our clients got the outcome they deserved. Since we finished that case she has continued to demonstrate her commitment and willingness to go the extra mile for clients." - Greg O'Ceallaigh, Garden Court Chambers

  • "I have been working with Aleksandra on a variety of human rights, immigration and asylum cases for a couple of years. I have been very impressed by her dedication to the clients and their (often very difficult) cases. She loves to work for justice which is a quality which really shines through in all she does and which I have observed in her written work, her appetite for work and her dealings with the clients. She has shown great professionalism, willingness to further develop her already impression command of the law and has a sharp analytical mind which is well adapted to the often demanding work of urgent deadlines and injunctions.

    "I have been able to refer difficult and interesting cases to her which she has taken on and added great value to. She is prepared to deploy her knowledge, commitment and skills and really go that extra mile in the pursuit of justice. If someone asks for me a recommendation for a solicitor in immigration, her name springs to mind first. I have no doubt that she can go far.
    " - James Dixon, No 5 Chambers
