Profile / Experience

I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis. I am based in the firm's head office in Harrow and work under the supervision of Solicitor Sulaiha Ali and Director Toufique Hossain.

I assist in the day-to-day case progression and client or third party correspondence on various immigration, asylum and human rights matters. I assist on unlawful detention cases as well as public interest cases with the intention of improving the situation in immigration detention centres.

My experience extends to representing vulnerable clients who have been held under immigration powers despite being survivors of torture, sexual violence and/or having serious mental health problems. I am also involved in challenging the lack of safeguards in place to identify such vulnerable people held under immigration powers.

My aim is to qualify as a solicitor and to work on public law challenges that help the lives of people finding it difficult in the immigration system.
