Sam joined Latitude Law as a caseworker in September 2018 and was promoted to senior caseworker in summer 2023. He is currently preparing for his Solicitors Qualifying Examination and hopes to qualify as a solicitor in February 2024. Sam has experience in all aspects of UK-inbound immigration, with a focus on family, deportation, citizenship (including deprivation of citizenship) and protection-based applications.
Sam has represented clients at the First-tier Tribunal for immigration bail and asylum hearings. He has accompanied individuals to asylum interviews and he has advised detainees held at Manchester Airport Short-Term Holding Facility.
Sam has volunteered for various charities including the British Red Cross Refugee Support Team and the human rights sector of the Liverpool Law Clinic. Sam has worked in Calais refugee camp as a Care4Calais volunteer and on the Greek island of Samos, where he co-founded I Have Rights, a legal and political NGO providing advice, information, and support to asylum seekers and refugees.
Outside of work Sam loves to travel and is a big Newcastle United fan. He unashamedly flew home from a trip to Australia to watch them lose the 2023 League Cup Final!
