Immigration

Prior to pupillage, Adele worked as a caseworker at the Home Office reviewing the lawfulness of immigration decisions that were subject to judicial review proceedings. Adele has represented clients on behalf of Bail for Immigration Detainees and welcomes instructions as she continues to build her practice in immigration law.

Family

Adele welcomes instructions in both private Children Act and matrimonial finance proceedings. During pupillage, she gained experience of a range of work in this area including Financial Dispute Resolution and multi-day fact-finding hearings. Whilst undertaking her BTPC Adele volunteered at the Personal Support Unit, primarily in the Central Family Court, and has experience of a broad range of hearings and of the particular challenges that can arise in proceedings where either party is not legally represented.

Background

Prior to commencing pupillage, Adele worked as a Litigation Caseworker at the Home Office where she reviewed challenges to immigration decisions and whether they should be defended or reconsidered. Prior to this, she worked as a Paralegal at the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) reviewing material and applying redactions in line with the Inquiry’s Protocol and managing material through the disclosure process. Before IICSA, Adele worked at the Independent Police Complaints Commission (now IOPC), where she provided support to one of the commissioners, which included research and preparing briefings, as well as co-ordinating work between investigators and the press and legal teams. From these roles she has experience of dealing with members of the public, legal representatives and the Police, often in relation to difficult and sensitive matters.

Whilst undertaking her BPTC, Adele volunteered with the Personal Support Unit, primarily in the Central Family Court, and Free Representation Unit in Social Security matters.

Prior to commencing her legal studies, Adele studied Classics and worked for 3 years at an auction house specialising in Roman and Ancient Greek coinage.

Outside of work Adele is a keen (but mediocre) runner and cyclist and enjoys keeping fit and balancing this out with a glass of wine or two. She also continues to support Arsenal, against her better judgment.
