Profile / Experience
I am a Solicitor in the Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis.
I specialise in in asylum, detained asylum casework and immigration detention matters such as bail and appeal applications. I frequently deal with variety of Judicial Review matters, including challenges to decisions of the Secretary of State for the Home Department to unlawfully detain and remove Claimants, and in cases being heard before the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration Asylum Chamber and the High Court.
I have significant experience dealing with vulnerable clients including those in detention, those suffering from psychological issues and victims of torture and trafficking. I also have experience in challenging the detention of vulnerable clients and have achieved success securing their release.
I am accredited as a Supervisor and Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Law Society’s Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme, which means I have demonstrated the required level of competence and specialist knowledge in Immigration and Asylum law as defined by the Law Society and enables me to advise and assist both private paying and publicly funded clients. I am committed to public funded work and representing the less fortunate members of society.
For those who struggle to communicate in English, I am fluent in Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu.
