She has a particular specialism pursuing unlawful immigration detention challenges against the Home Office, often arising from a variety of circumstances such as continued detention following a grant of bail by the immigration tribunal, detention of British nationals under immigration powers and the continued detention of foreign national prisoners beyond the completion of their prison sentence for no lawful reason.

She conducts her own advocacy in the Immigration Tribunals and makes written submissions to the High Court in judicial review applications.
