Profile / Experience
I am a Consultant Solicitor in the Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I have experience in a wide variety of complex and high profile cases. I am currently based in the Dalston office but being a consultant gives me the flexibility to travel and meet clients all across London and the wider area.
I deal primarily with private immigration matters; I have a vast experience in assisting clients with Tier 1, 2 and 4 applications including Sponsorship Licence, entry clearance, EEA applications, Naturalisation and Deportation matters. I also have significant experience in asylum and human rights applications in particular Article 8 family and private life matters. I have in-depth experience as an advocate as I regularly represent clients in immigration appeal and bail hearings in the First-tier and Upper Tribunals. I also assist clients with Judicial Review matters successfully challenging the Home Office decisions. I have successfully advised and assisted companies and employers with right to work checks and challenging civil penalties for illegal working.
I have significant experience dealing with vulnerable clients including those in detention, those suffering from complex psychological issues and victims of torture, trafficking and domestic violence.
Prior to joining Duncan Lewis my experience consisted primarily of immigration, family and civil litigation.
