Irim Ali

  • Legal Assistant
  • With a keen interest in connecting families and a passion in protecting human rights, I offer skill and experience to clients that may find immigration a daunting experience. Being bilingual in Urdu and Punjabi I am able to break down language barriers for many of our clients helping them understand immigration systems and working to achieve the best outcome for them and their loved ones.

    I graduated in 2011 with a Law Degree from the Open University. I then studied the Legal Practice Course at Northumbria University and graduated in 2014. I have recently completed the OISC Level 1 training in Immigration and am currently studying level 2.

    I am also an Elected Councillor for the Wingrove Ward (since 2008) and represent Newcastle City Council on a number of Management Committees including Newcastle Centre for Life and the North East Law Centre.

    Before coming to work here, I worked as an anti-trafficking advocate in a Senior Support Worker Outreach role working with victims of human trafficking in the North East region for a well-established charity.
