He qualified as a solicitor in July 2019 and has specialised in complex asylum, human rights and deportation cases since then.

Joel studied archaeology at Durham University before completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. He holds a Masters in Law and Business. Joel began his legal career working in corporate and personal injury law before moving to Latitude Law where he obtained a training contract and subsequently qualified. Joel moved to Latitude Law because he wanted to use his education and training to help people.
Outside of office hours, Joel is a keen hill walker and a qualified mountain leader. He is often found up a mountain with Fern, his 3 year old Springer. He is a keen sportsman, playing hockey several times a week and he enjoys boardgames at his local boardgame café.
