I am a Solicitor in the Public Law Immigration Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I am passionate about achieving access to justice for my clients, and I have gained experience across public law, immigration law and litigation. I have particular interest in human trafficking cases and I have been invited to run workshops and training on modern slavery issues.
My work is extremely varied, and includes:
- Developing strategic litigation, with a particular focus on access to justice and victims of trafficking
- Civil actions against public authorities including the Home Office, the police and other public bodies
- Judicial review applications in relation to unlawful detention, human rights breaches and other unlawful actions of public bodies
- Assisting clients with all aspects of their immigration and asylum claims, including at appeal and in onward appeals to the Upper Tribunal and, on
occasion, the Court of Appeal
I am currently based out of Duncan Lewis’s Manchester Office, and I am able to receive instructions from all over the North West of England. I can also be contacted in relation to public law work elsewhere in the UK.
I joined Duncan Lewis in January 2017 as a trainee solicitor. I qualified as a solicitor in the Public Law team in January 2019. Immediately prior to joining Duncan Lewis I worked for a leading civil liberties law firm in Manchester. I obtained Level 2 (Senior Caseworker) accreditation under the Law Society's Immigration and Accreditation Scheme, meaning I have demonstrated my knowledge and expertise in this area of law.
