Profile / Experience
I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Public Law and Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis. I have gained experience in a wide variety of complex and high profile public law matters since I joined Duncan Lewis in January 2017.
My judicial review workload consists of working on litigation in matters such as trafficking and modern slavery matters, unlawful detention, removals to European countries under the Dublin Convention, and removals on asylum and human rights grounds including various challenges against decisions made by the Secretary of State for the Home Department.
I have significant experience dealing with vulnerable clients including those in detention, those suffering from complex psychological issues and victims of torture and trafficking. I have a particular specialism in handling trafficking matters and challenging the detention of vulnerable clients, I have achieved significant success securing release and awards of damages for my clients.
As an accredited Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Law Society’s Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme (IAAS), I am able to represent highly vulnerable clients including victims of torture, victims of trafficking, detained clients and those with other forms of physical and mental vulnerabilities. I also specialise in SET (DV) applications.
I have a passion to help those who are vulnerable and I have previously worked at the Nottinghamshire Refugee Forum where I assisted asylum seekers and refugees in a range of matters including homelessness, welfare benefits, domestic violence and liaising with the Home Office.
I am very committed to ensuring my clients receive the best standard of care and representation in their legal matters.
