Experience

I joined Bates Wells in October 2018. Since joining Bates Wells, I have worked on a wide range of both commercial and personal immigration matters, including partner applications, various Points Based System applications, comprising Tier 2 and Tier 5, as well as further leave to remain applications and naturalisations.

Previously, I worked at Stone King LLP within their Commercial Property department, assisting on a range of property transactions for both charities and commercial clients. I also completed an internship with Amicus ALJ in Houston, Texas, working on the post-conviction appeals process for clients facing the death penalty.
