Quotes from previous clients
“Nicola assisted me twice with my Tier 2 work visa applications for the UK. The first time, applying from abroad, and the second time, extending my visa from within the UK. In both situations, Nicola demonstrated excellent knowledge and professionalism. Nicola’s strong attention to detail and patience throughout the entirety of the application processes were highly appreciated. I would highly recommend working with Nicola in relation to UK immigration law services”.
“We had the good fortune of finding and engaging Nicola to help us with two Tier 2 visa applications in the past year. Having come from a terrible experience with another firm which led to the unnecessary (and traumatic) loss of one of our colleagues, we were nervous about the process. We needn’t have worried. Nicola was calm, confident, more than competent, and communicated clearly and very timely at each key milestone during the process. I’m delighted to report that the immigration process went extremely smoothly, not only once, but twice. I have no hesitation in sharing my recommendation, and we will certainly be working with Nicola again”.
“I had the opportunity to work with Nicola during my work visa application process. It was a truly remarkable experience. Nicola is very friendly and approachable, and her knowledge and expertise on UK immigration law, and her attention to detail on the policy guidelines is highly commendable. For any legal advice in future, I will definitely contact Nicola and will also recommend Nicola to all of my family, friends and colleagues”.
