Profile / Experience

I am a Housing Solicitor at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I joined the firm as an intern in July 2014 and worked closely with Head of Islamic Department, Aina Khan dealing with Islamic Marriages and Divorce, Finances, Islamic Mehr Claims and Children matters.

Whilst at Duncan Lewis, I took part in volunteering at the Pro Bono Clinic and projects such as Register Our Marriage 'ROM' campaign and Macmillan Cancer Charity events. I continue to volunteer at the Pro Bono Clinic at Duncan Lewis and also take part in the County Court Duty Solicitor Scheme.

Since April 2016, I have been dealing with housing matters including Homelessness, Disrepair, Section 202 Reviews, Section 204 Appeals, Eviction/Unlawful Eviction and Possession Proceedings.

I was offered a solicitor Training Contract in the Housing department in March 2017 and gained experience with Neighbour Disputes and Litigation cases dealing with harassment, nuisance and anti-social behaviour. I often attend court as a Housing Duty Solicitor and have quality experience at court with barristers at Trials and Hearings.

I am fluent in the Turkish language.

  • “I was extremely impressed with the advocacy service offered by Zuhal at Duncan Lewis to a client I was supporting at the time. She gave us regular updates regarding progress of the case and the outcome was successful.” - Family Support Practitioner, Hackney Children’s Centre

  • "Zuhal is a friendly and approachable person who has your genuine interest at heart above everything. She explains everything clearly and is as determined as you are to get things sorted out fairly and reasonably. She has been wonderful with my father's case. Through her hard work and professionalism we were able to obtain the positive outcome that we were looking for. We can't thank her enough for all her support and help on this case." - S.A

  • “I really do not know where to start from as there is so much goodness to say about Zuhal. Most importantly the council property I had was taken off me without a valid reason, and when I approached Zuhal initially I did not know my rights and to be honest I had doubts I would win the case. Zuhal has worked hard for my complex case which lasted for two years. The attention to detail and rigorous working on my case, Zuhal has gained back my right in my property with my children. I thank Zuhal and Duncan Lewis family." - Z.E

  • “Zuhal got me through the hardest time of my life. I am very grateful. Zuhal is very professional, helpful and a very nice person.” - M.L
