Hoa draws upon his experience from previous years of practice in the fields of family, local council regulatory, and criminal law and channels it exclusively in his focus to the area of immigration. He is a specialist in all matters appearing before the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal and has appeared in representation of appellants including former diplomats against decisions of the State as well as on behalf of the Secretary State in judicial review proceedings.
His multi-disciplinary background offers a more rounded approach and ability to engage with a variety of cases including: deportation, illegal workers, lawfulness of detention, bail, family and private right claims, personal and commercial visas, as well as asylum and refugee claims. Indeed, born in the UK of refugee parents who settled following the conflict in Vietnam 1970s, he offers a unique insight and no under-estimation of the importance of each and every case.
Approachable and engaging, Hoa fully appreciates the necessity for a quick turnaround when advice is sought and strives always to offer informed realistic and practical solutions.
Hoa is fluent in spoken Cantonese.
Hoa recently took a sabbatical year to pursue his passion in setting up a food business which currently employs a number of people. As the enterprise is now running smoothly, Hoa returned to Chambers with wider commercial insight and full vigour.
