Since being called to the bar of Ontario in 2000, Joel has practiced exclusively in immigration and refugee law. In addition to representing clients before various federal and provincial departments and agencies, Joel regularly appears before the Federal Court, the Ontario Courts, and all levels of the Immigration and Refugee Board.
Although he has experience in all areas of immigration and refugee law, Joel has focussed his practice on issues relating to immigration litigation and enforcement. This includes representing clients who are seeking refugee protection in Canada, who are detained by the Canada Border Services Agency, or who have been found to be inadmissible for reasons ranging from suffering a serious illness or disability to having been identified as a threat to national security.
Joel is the leader of Mamann, Sandaluk & Kingwell LLP’s litigation and enforcement practice group and in addition to his own practice, he is responsible for mentoring and supervising associate lawyers on their files. Joel is also regularly consulted by journalists on issues related to immigration law both in Canada and internationally and he frequently appears on television and other media.
Joel often speaks at continuing professional development programs organized by the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Canadian Bar Association, the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General and Osgoode Hall Law School.
