Profile

I was called to the Bar in November 2000, and I was first introduced to asylum and human rights law at a prestigious law firm in Wood Green with whom I have maintained substantial ties over the years.

Enjoying a busy practice, and taking a robust approach to this very demanding area of law, I regularly appears at the First Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber). I often appear in the Upper Tribunal in public law matters as well as the Court of Appeal. Assisting clients in all aspects of immigration law, I specialise in cases involving entry clearance, appellants with serious medical conditions, long resident children, illegal entrants, refugees, and victims of trafficking and/or modern slavery.

I also have substantial experience in deportation matters including drafting grounds for applications for permission to seek judicial review and injunctive relief to stop removal action. I often represent EEA nationals who are seeking permanent residence in the UK, and/or their family members applying for confirmation of their right to reside in this country.

Additionally in my practice, I undertake criminal appellate work. For several years, I have assisted defendants challenging their convictions and/ or sentence at the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) by providing advice and representation. The defendants are often appealing following a long delay, and are usually relying on a change in the law.

I am a member of the Bar Pro Bono unit and is committed to attaining access to justice for all.
