Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor in the Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I work under the supervision of director, Tamana Aziz.

I am experienced in UK nationality law and I have been involved in a wide variety of complex and high profile immigration cases since I started my practice in this field in January 2016. I am experienced and willing to act under extreme time pressures to ensure that all applications or challenges against unlawful decisions are submitted on time.

I have significant experience dealing with business people, as well as vulnerable clients. I have acted for EEA nationals and other nationals from all over the world such as Pakistan, India, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, UAE, USA, Canada, Yemen and Israel.

  • "I'm very pleased with the way that my case was handled. Efrat is a true professional, who made sure to attend to my every need. Efrat was always available, even on her annual vacation, or weekends if needed, whether it was with emails, WhatsApp, phone calls. I will most definitely recommend her services to anyone who is in need to hire an immigration lawyer." - Client, 2021

  • "We would like to thank Ms Efrat Shemesh of Duncan Lewis Lawyers for her legal assistance in obtaining the necessary pre-settlement status for my family - specifically for handling my own pre-settlement as the unmarried partner of an EU citizen. She acted at a highly professional level and was successful both in terms of my employment and approval of the pre-settlement. Ms Shemesh was very attentive, courteous and thorough throughout the process and we had a very satisfactory time working with her. We highly recommend her." - Client, 2021

  • I want to thank Eftat and Tamana from the Harrow on the Hill office that helped my wife and me with our permanent residency applications. I am a returning customer of Tamana, which helped me with my residency case before, and I especially highly recommend Efrat for anyone who is looking for an immigration solicitor. It's been a stressless process for us - Efrat was thorough and professional while being empathetic. She was always available for any question that I had and updated me on every step of the application. Thank you both!
