Voratida was called to the Bar in 2010 and has practised successfully as a barrister for over 5 years. She has considerable experience as a court advocate and, through drafting summary grounds in immigration cases under the Treasury Solicitor's "Baby Barrister" scheme, has developed an in-depth understanding of family and private life human rights-based claims.
Voratida now assists clients with applications and appeals acrosss all areas of immigration law, with a particular emphasis on family migration, EEA free movement, settlement, human rights and asylum claims.
Prior to commencing pupillage, Voratida worked in India and Cambodia with the International Justice Mission, assisting the prosecution in cases of sex-trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. She also volunteered at the London Detainee Support Group (now known as Detention Action), assisting Immigration Detainees through liaising with solicitors, helping make applications for bail, and offering asylum support advice.
"Voratida and the team were extremely professional and very prompt when answering email & calls. They left no stone unturned and proved to be extremely knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy. Their meticulous preparation resulted in a positive response in less than two months."

"From the first instance, my lawyer, Voratida, filled me with a sense of hope and confidence, through her thorough legal knowledge ... Voratida made light work of my case, which had previously been a source of infinite stress to myself and my family. I would wholeheartedly recommend the services of Voratida and Richmond Chambers to anyone seeking help with immigration law."
