I regularly draft appeals, witness statements and forms and have submitted a multitude of applications to the Home Office, Tribunals and High Courts of Justice. In addition, I have acted on an array of Judicial Review claims at the Upper Tribunal (Immigration & Asylum Chamber) and High Courts of Justice and have vast experience preparing court bundles & managing all procedural steps leading up to a hearing.

My practice typically involves 90% dispute-related work.
