Billal previously worked as a criminal practitioner for several years.

He is therefore well-placed to help clients in the family court who are making or defending themselves against allegations of financial misconduct or domestic abuse.    

Billal is also a highly regarded immigration practitioner with expertise in complex immigration and nationality matters. He therefore has particular expertise in family court children matters with an immigration-related dimension.

My approach

Approaching a barrister or solicitor for help makes most people very nervous. This is usually because they worry about the financial cost of legal advice, and because the thought of complicated legal procedures makes them feel they have no control over their problem.

Billal’s approach is simple and transparent. The first telephone consultation is free. If you wish to progress your query and instruct Billal, he will quote you a fee for the work, and will give you his direct contact details, so that you can contact him whenever you think you need help. Most clients find that this flexible approach works well for them.
