Profile / Experience

I am currently a Consultant Solicitor in the Immigration Department, based in the firm's Dalston office.

I am an experienced advocate before the Immigration Asylum Chamber (IAC), and I specialise in further appeals to the Upper Tribunal of the IAC as well as paper applications to the High Court and Court of Appeal.

I am accredited under the Law Society’s Immigration and Asylum Scheme which means I have the required level of knowledge and expertise in this area of law, as defined by the Law Society. It also enables me to advise and assist both private paying and publicly funded clients.

I am the author of a series of articles on Immigration Law published online in Mondaq these include: "Deceptively Simple: Revisiting Paragraph 320"; "Time Spent Under Association Agreements will count towards the Acquisition of Permanent Residence"; "Zambrano and European Citizenship: A Trump Card for British Children?"

The Court held that the threshold for the establishment of a breach of article 3 on medical grounds will in certain circumstances be lower for a child than an adult.
