Joey joined the firm in August 2019 as a paralegal, and is due to become an accredited Senior Caseworker in February 2020. Joey graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science with a First Class Honours in BSc Government in June 2016, and is dedicated to making legal understanding accessible to those it impacts on the most.
Joey’s interest in immigration law developed whilst working at the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group, where his exposure to the discrimination directed towards members of his own community motivated him to begin a career in law.
Prior to joining the firm, Joey both coordinated and worked as a caseworker for Khora Asylum Support Team, providing free legal advice and information to displaced people in Athens, Greece. Alongside this role, he coordinated the Refugee Legal Support in Athens clinic from September 2017 to March 2018, coordinating a project of volunteer lawyers and preparing individuals for asylum and family reunion procedure across Europe.
Joey’s exceptional organisational skills, coupled with his solid commitment to our work and fast developing legal skills are proving invaluable to our legal team. Joey intends to qualify as a solicitor under the Solicitors Qualifying Exam regime in 2022.
