Paul appears regularly before the First-Tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal, Administrative Court and Court of Appeal. He also regularly makes applications for interim relief by telephone to the out of hours High Court and Court of Appeal Judge, recently obtaining an telephone injunction from Gloster LJ in the Court of Appeal preventing removal from a client from the United Kingdom to Pakistan.
Until recently you would need to instruct a solicitor to access Paul’s services as a specialist immigration barrister. Not any more. You can now come to him directly, cutting out unnecessary duplication and costs. Paul is a registered direct access immigration barrister and has applied to be able to conduct litigation.
Uniquely, it is believed, among immigration barristers, Paul has a dedicated team to ensure that your case is professionally and thoroughly dealt with from the beginning. Paul has two full time assistants, this on top of the professional clerks at Mansfield Chambers who are lead by the highly experienced Martin Parker (ex of Tooks Chambers).
What this means in practice is that you will always be able to get in touch with one of his team should you need it. Paul understands that immigration problems and the threat of being removed from the United Kingdom is a massively stressful matter and one that needs to be dealt with quickly and with compassion.
The consequence of all of this is Paul will provide you with the personal service you can expect from coming to a barrister directly combined with the level of professional support you would normally only achieve if you were to instruct a firm of solicitors. He brings to this his extensive experience (see his profile and list of cases for more details) and is therefore able to provide full, detailed and honest advice when you need it most.
If you have an immigration problem of any kind he is able to provide you with immigration advice, assistance and representation.
If you or a family member / friend are facing removal and require urgent advice or have a more general enquiry feel free to get in touch anytime.
Paul also takes instructions from a wide range of solicitors in England and Wales and is accepts work both on a private and legally aided basis.
