Eleri qualified as a Solicitor in February 2017 practicing in Immigration, Asylum and Public Law since May 2014. She is accredited as Level 2 Senior Caseworker under the Law Society’s Immigration and Asylum Accreditation scheme (OISC Level 3). Before qualifying, Eleri obtained First Class Honours from Swansea University in Spanish and Law, as well as a Distinction in her Legal Practice Course (LPC).
Eleri has developed a niche specialism in Latin American asylum and human trafficking claims with the majority of her clients comprising of Colombian, Nicaraguan, El Salvadorian, Cuban, Albanian, and Kosovan nationals.
Eleri handles matters involving vulnerable clients, often those who are victims of trafficking or slavery. She succeeded before the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration Asylum Chamber (IAC) in a Colombian asylum claim concerning a former DEA informant fearing reprisals from FARC and Mexican-Colombian cartels. This case was significant as the current country guidance case law does not recognise informants as forming a ‘particular social group’ for the purposes of the Refugee Convention. She has several years’ experience assisting asylum-seekers from the world-over in every
aspect of their case, from the initial asylum claim to Judicial Review challenges and Upper Tribunal work.
Eleri has been recognised by The Legal 500, 2020 edition, as a ‘Rising Star: Immigration/Wales’ and ‘Recommended Individual’.
