Profile / Experience
I am a Consultant Solicitor in the Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis. I act for a broad client base across Greater London in all aspects immigration, asylum, EU, nationality and immigration related judicial review matters.
I frequently appear as an advocate in immigration and asylum appeals before the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal of the Immigration Asylum Chamber. Further, in the fields of asylum, immigration detention and removal cases, I regularly challenge unlawful immigration decisions by way of judicial review and by appeal to the Court of Appeal. As illustrated by my notable cases, I have been the solicitor with conduct of a number of important immigration cases that have assisted to clarify or change the law.
I act for both privately funded and publicly funded (legal aid) clients and have extensive experience working with the most vulnerable; in particular – victims of torture/trafficking/PTSD, minors and unaccompanied asylum seeking children and those detained and under the Immigration Acts.
I am accredited by the Law Society as a Senior Caseworker of the Immigration & Asylum Accreditation Scheme, this means that I have shown that I have the specialist knowledge and experience in the area of Immigration law as required by the Law Society and can advise and assist publicly funded clients under the company's legal aid contract.
