Sarah is a specialist barrister and experienced trainer in immigration, asylum and human rights law. She also has expertise in nationality matters and continues to have conduct of some family law cases concerning children.  She has been recommended as a Leading Barrister in immigration law by the Legal 500.  In the 2020 edition, Sarah is described as having ‘a very effective, calm and considered approach in advocacy, an attribute which is often well-received by judges. ’  Sarah was first listed in the 2014 edition as a “real rising star”.

Prior to joining the Bar, Sarah practised in immigration and asylum law as a senior caseworker in a not-for-profit organisation in South London.  This has given her the grass-roots experience in preparing cases before they reach appeal stage as well as a grounding for true team-work with her professional and lay clients.

Sarah is committed to publicly funded work and ensuring access to justice for those most vulnerable. She is naturally friendly and approachable as well as meticulous and creative in her approach to cases.  In chambers, Sarah leads the immigration team together with her colleague Samina Iqbal.

Sarah has recently been appointed as a part-time First-Tier-Tribunal Judge of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, sitting in Birmingham IAC.  In July 2015, Sarah was also appointed as an Independent Funding and Costs Adjudicator for the Legal Aid Agency.
