What I enjoy about my job
Seeing my clients fill with joy when I advise them that their application has been approved or that they have won their appeal. This is a truly rewarding feeling, as it is sometimes a life-changing outcome.

How I ‘make it happen’ for my clients
I give practical advice and I help my clients to navigate the immigration “minefield” with as little or as much support they feel they need. I also review applications/documents, and provide detailed representations.

A bit about my background
I worked in Hong Kong for almost a year, under the guidance of a former President of the Hong Kong Law Society, before training in Scotland as a lawyer. I was admitted as a solicitor in Scotland in July 2015 and successfully completed my legal training in June 2016. Since qualifying I have practiced immigration law exclusively and regularly advise organisations on how to obtain a Tier 2 sponsor licence and also have extensive experience advising individuals on a wide range of immigration matters. I have also represented clients in the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber).

What I wish I’d known at the start of my career
The law is not always black and white, and that’s OK. It is being able to advise on the risks which is important.

You might not know this about me but…
I went to Tae Kwon Do classes for about 7 years, and then quit the day after I got my black belt. I was around 11 or 12 years old at the time and wanted more time to play with my friends. I never went back, but maybe that can be next on my bucket list!
