Jonathan has successfully brought actions against Local Authorities in the High Court for breaches of a parent’s Article 8 Human Rights.

Jonathan has experience in cases involving parents accused of suffering from FII.

In his immigration practice his particular areas of practice are refugee law, unlawful detention, human rights and deportation. He is a specialist in Home Office policy and ‘Abdi’- type actions against the Secretary of State.
