Quotes from previous clients

“Nicola assisted me with my EEA Family Permit application to join my partner in the UK. I had quite a complicated case (due to being an unmarried partner), but Nicola was unbelievably helpful and reassuring. She is particularly knowledgeable on the EEA Regulations and was able to recommend a suitable solution for every minor detail. Nicola is very organised and detail oriented. She was quick to respond to all emails and queries, regardless of how ‘silly’ I considered my concerns to be. I truly feel that Nicola cares about all of her clients and understands the difficult situations that some families are placed in, then does her best to help. Above all, Nicola is patient, friendly and very lovely and I cannot recommend her enough”.

“Nicola helped my partner secure her EEA Family Permit to come to the UK. As I had just started a new job here, we were placed in a difficult situation but Nicola definitely gave her all to ensure we had the best possible solution. She provided all the support she could and clarified all the possible outcomes. I find her extremely competent and an expert in her field. The main thing that sets her apart is that she genuinely cares about her clients and their situation, while being extremely professional. Thank you for everything Nicola!”.
