Profile / Experience
I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Public Law and Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis, having joined in September 2015.
I am experienced in a wide variety of Judicial Review claimant and asylum matters and I specialise in challenging removals from the UK to European countries under the Dublin III Regulation, challenges to decisions of the Secretary of State for the Home Department to unlawfully detain and remove clients, cases involving victims of political persecution and torture, challenging the unlawful detention of LGBTI persons, abuse within detention centres and statelessness cases.
I represent clients from all backgrounds, from privately funded clients to vulnerable victims of trafficking, and often have to handle cases at the last minute to tight deadlines such as is the case with deportation/removal matters. I conduct a varied caseload with cases being heard before the Upper Tribunal, Special Immigration Appeals Commission, the High Court and Court of Appeal.
I am accredited as a Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Law Society’s Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme, which means I have demonstrated the required standard of knowledge and expertise as required by the Law Society.
