Yasmin Adib

Caseworker

Profile / Experience

I am a Senior Caseworker in the Public Law Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I work with a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers under the supervision of Director Rohena Wallace. I have day to day handling and case progression of a wide range of immigration, asylum and human rights matters. These include both publicly funded and private cases. I have experience in matters involving statelessness, victims of trafficking and modern slavery, victims of torture, appealing asylum decisions at the Tribunals, requests to revoke deportations and other various private immigration matters. I have experience in cases involving the Home Office Windrush scheme. Thanks to my Arabic language skills, I represent many clients from the Middle East.

I also have experience in judicial review matters. These include challenges against the Secretary of State for the Home Department concerning issues such as unlawful detention, removals to European countries under the Dublin Conventions, removals on asylum and human rights grounds and various other challenges.

I am accredited as a Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Law Society's Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme meaning I have demonstrated the desired level of expertise and experience in this area of law as specified by the Law Society.

I have previously undertaken legal and voluntary work placements, including at Allen & Overy LLP, the Access to Justice Foundation, the London Voluntary Service Council and Mental Health at LSE. I have worked at an LSE Alumnus think tank called Social Vision, where I regularly wrote articles on issues associated with human rights.

Testimonials

  • "I am writing to personally thank Yasmin for all the hard work and dedication she had put in to making sure that I get the best results out of my immigration process. It was her persistent hard work and thorough research which has given me more than a fruitful result. The constant emails and phone calls informing me on any updates and kept me so positive. Yasmin never hesitated to make sure I was in the correct mental state by giving me continuous reassurance. Her continuous support and hard work showed me her transparency towards my case. From the very beginning till now she has stood by me when I was struggling and most vulnerable." - Client, September 2020
  • "Very good experience, and highly recommend them. Am so happy and satisfied in my experience with them. Everything was perfect, the communication, the follow up, the preparations, and everything else. The important thing is that my case was sorted out in a few months. Thanks Duncan Lewis, and very big special thanks for my case worker, Yasmin." - Client, November 2019
  • "To Yasmin Adib and everyone at Duncan Lewis who helped to establish my rights as a Windrush immigrant, I am ever grateful, ever thankful. For the first time in a long time I am here with my family as I should be, not as a tourist from abroad." - Client, March 2019
