Daniel Ajak Interview on Greens List Barristers

At 13 years old Daniel Ajak left the Kenyan refugee camp he grew up in, with his sister and a suitcase, bound for Australia. He had never left the camp before let alone boarded a plane or been overseas. A few days later he landed in Australia and would not see his parents again for 12 years.

Daniel Ajak Interview on Greens List Barristers

At 13 years old Daniel Ajak left the Kenyan refugee camp he grew up in, with his sister and a suitcase, bound for Australia. He had never left the camp before let alone boarded a plane or been overseas. A few days later he landed in Australia and would not see his parents again for 12 years. Daniel’s upbringing, work ethic, tenacity, community and vision all guided him to a dynamic Life in the Law, where he became a lawyer at Victorian Legal Aid and an active member of the Australia African community.

UPDATE: We are thrilled to announce that since we recorded this interview, Daniel has started his own legal practice Ajak Wolan & Associates with partner Natasha Wolan, providing robust, sound and expert legal representation in contested matters, guilty pleas, and appeals against sentence and/or conviction.
