Humpty Dumpty & The Best Immigration Lawyers
Coffee Up! Today is a BIG day for me.
For 20 years now I’ve consistently engaged the best immigration law barristers I could find to work with me. We are now one the nation’s most successful visa practices because of the “smarts” and the “hunger” of external Counsel.
But 4 hours from now, it will be different. I’m heading into the ring, alone this time. In the opposite corner, the Minister’s pet law firm (paired with a gun 🔫 Barrister).
Yes, the Minister has again lawyered-up to fight about the legality of an AAT decision. My client has made a (defacto) partner visa application which has been refused.
In courtroom 6A at 2:15pm there will be a Solicitor and a Barrister, both from the Minister’s legal team, sitting side by side. In my corner (uh..my end of the bar table) there will be only me, this time. No barrister. No solicitor.
Although I’ll be wearing my trusted white singlet with white shirt under my Harvey suit, I won’t have my Superman underwear on today! Isn’t it time I stepped up? I think so.
Wish me luck! I will need it for this next battle, my first solo campaign in Court against the Minister.
I may need “putting together again”.
