Immigration: Human Rights, appeals & overstay / London
I am a Solicitor and Supervisor within the Public Law Department at Duncan Lewis. I specialise in a wide range of immigration related judicial review matters, with a particular interest in refugee law and immigration detention.
I have extensive experience in the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal of the Immigration Asylum Chamber as well as the County Court, Administrative Court and Court of Appeal, litigating across a broad range of areas and regularly conducting high profile challenges to unlawful policies and practices affecting vulnerable people.
I am dedicated to providing representation to those who are most in need, meaning the majority of my work is carried out under legal aid. I also work closely with several charitable organisations and female refuges in order to assist victims of gender and sexual based violence in order and ensure that these women have sufficient access to justice.
Whilst I am committed to challenging the Secretary of State's unlawful actions by way of judicial review, I remain heavily involved with my clients' underlying asylum and protection based claims and am driven to achieving successful outcomes in all cases.
My accreditation as a Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Law Society's Immigration and Asylum Scheme means I have shown that I have specialist knowledge and experience in this area of law and can advise and assist publicly funded clients under Duncan Lewis' legal aid contract.
