Sonia undertook pupillage at 12 Old Square and has recently joined as a tenant. During pupillage Sonia was fortunate enough to observe members of chambers appearing in important cases over all areas of immigration, asylum, nationality and EU law. In her own practice Sonia is experienced in bail applications, Immigration appeals at First-tier and Upper Tribunal level and applications for permission for judicial review. Sonia is happy to accept drafting instructions and is complimented for her written work.
 
Prior to commencing pupillage Sonia combined litigation paralegal roles with pro-bono work for a number of legal charities most notably BID (bail for immigration detainees) for whom Sonia still undertakes pro-bono work. She has extensive advocacy experience in courts and tribunals and is a very effective advocate.
