We were very nervous after having bad dealings with a previous immigration solicitor and were very upfront with what our concerns were during the initial meeting with Bermeet however during that meeting Bermeet put us at ease with her knowledge of the immigration process and insight into what had happened previously. Bermeet understood the concerns we had and put us at ease with her straight-forward communication with us and by agreeing to keep us regularly updated with the progress of the application.
The application was progressed in a timely manner with Bermeet sending us the important submissions for us to review to ensure we were happy with them. Both Bermeet and Lauren have done an amazing job on the application and have been very thorough and polite throughout the process as well as asking for and reviewing documents in a timely manner so that any deficiencies could be addressed and replying to any queries we raised promptly.
We would 100% recommend anyone to use them for their immigration matters and will be coming back…
