Gilton Valeo would like to re-introduce the newest member to our team, Poorvaja Nirmaleswaran. You can call her PJ.

“Having migrated to Australia and gone through the immigration process, I have always been keen to learn and practise immigration law. During my second year of university, I started work as an office assistant with John Gillespie, in what was then called Gilton Business Consultants. As the business evolved into Gilton Valeo, I was given the opportunity to work as a legal clerk, assisting with an array of Australian visa applications, including business and family migration.

With the valuable experience that I gained from working at Gilton Valeo, I undertook a summer clerkship and in turn, a paralegal position with Fragomen. I worked with a range of local and multinational businesses, assisting predominantly in 457 and ENS visa applications.

In April 2014, I was admitted as Solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and in May 2014, I graduated from the University of Technology, Sydney with a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours)/Bachelor of Arts in Communications (Public Communications).

Since that time I have continued to explore immigration law, first at Phillip Silver & Associates and later as an Intern Solicitor at Salvos Legal Humanitarian. My experience now spans to general skilled migration, humanitarian visas, bridging visas, and Migration Review Tribunal Appeals. In recent times, I have also travelled and had a small stint at marketing and public relations.

Having moved around and experienced various facets of immigration law, I am excited to get back to where all started – Gilton Valeo!

Apart from immigration law, I am also passionate about Indian Classical Dancing and continue to teach and perform it on a regular basis.”
