A bit about me

I have a real passion for other cultures, countries and people, and I get great satisfaction knowing that what I do helps people to cut through an incredibly complex system in order to achieve their personal or professional goals.

Private immigration in particular exposes me to life-changing experiences and keeps me grounded. I emigrated here from Canada so I have personal experience in this area, which I think enables me to really understand your needs.

Immigration law is very varied and each day, my work ranges from human rights claims to applications from family members or students, as well as working with businesses to secure immigration status for their employees.

I’m very meticulous and structured in my approach and take every client through the process step-by-step, giving detailed and practical advice so that you’re able to meet the timescales and legal framework required. I am always available for you and work proactively to keep you informed, anticipating any possible issues and bringing fresh ideas to the table if necessary.

My biggest passion relates to the protection of human rights. I regularly read NGO reports and follow the work carried out by UNHCR and other, similar, organisations.

Want to know more?

Keep up-to-date with new developments that may impact on your immigration status.

Make sure you take necessary steps to review and extend your leave before it expires, ideally three to four months in advance.

Never overstay your leave!

I want to stay in the UK. What are my options?

I’ll need to establish your immigration history in the UK and ask you a few questions with respect to any offences. I will then advise you on any viable options.

I want to employ a migrant worker, who I have already identified. How do I go about doing that?

First, I’ll need full details of the job, how you identified the individual migrant and confirmation of whether you currently hold or have ever held a sponsor licence.

I want my spouse to join me in the UK. How can I make this happen?

I will need to ask you a few questions to assess whether you are likely to meet the requirements for a Spouse/Partner visa under Appendix FM.
