Profile / Experience
I am a Solicitor in the Public Law and Immigration departments at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I have conduct of claims for judicial review, representing claimants in cases concerning administrative detention, injunctive relief against removal and other challenges to government policies. I also represent clients for initial claims, further submissions and appeals to the First-Tier and Upper Tribunal regarding asylum, trafficking, deportation, statelessness, and human rights claims.
I am accredited as a Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme, permitting me to assist children and people with physical and mental vulnerabilities.
Before joining Duncan Lewis, I volunteered as a caseworker at Bail for Immigration Detainees in the ‘Right to Liberty Project’, representing vulnerable adults and long term detainees for bail. I also volunteered as a caseworker at the National Deaf Children’s Society, representing children and young people in relation to appealing adverse disability benefit decisions of the Department of Work and Pensions. In 2016 I was the winner of the LawWorks Junior Division Pro Bono Award, which recognises the pro bono contributions of trainees and solicitors with a maximum of five years' PQE.
