‘One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals’ 

Michelle Obama


Prior to establishing Prolegis Solicitors, Shafana worked as a consultant solicitor in Harrogate where she developed and led the immigration department.

Shafana accepts a limited number of cases on a pro bono basis from vulnerable individuals, particularly women and victims of domestic violence in desperate need of legal assistance.

Over the years Shafana has developed a wealth of experience in dealing with a broad range of immigration issues and is an expert in her practice area. Shafana is well regarded for resolving highly complex immigration matters be it personal immigration [spouses, partner, family, dependant relative visas, applications under the Human Rights Act 1998] or business immigration [where an employer is seeking to recruit foreign workers, or challenging a civil penalty for employing illegal workers].

Shafana offers advice, assistance and representation at court in all areas of immigration law. She has successfully challenged deportation orders and obtained injunctions from the High Court to halt removal on numerous cases.

Shafana’s most notable cases include obtaining refugee status for a prominent scientist during the biological weapons era. The intelligence services including MI5 were involved, and the case attracted interest from some of the world’s most powerful nations including the USA.
