immigration solicitorsA large percentage of all immigration applications and petitions filed without legal counsel are denied. This is a fact. Immigration law is highly complicated and an immigrant needs a lawyer to help with the preparation of his or her immigration case and filling out the forms. Only a specialist immigration solicitor can correctly review the facts of your case, determine legal remedies, and guide your case through the Home Office.

We help you understand immigration law, policies, and regulations.

The strict immigration laws applied in The UK can be frustrating and restrictive to individuals who want to enter the United Kingdom. The process requires dedication because there are many laws and a lot of paperwork involved. Without the guidance of a lawyer the laws and regulations will all be Greek to you. Our immigration advisers will help you by cutting through the red tape and excess paperwork.

You will need to consult with an immigration lawyer when you are not sure about the eligibility of your visa or other immigration benefits. We also help in situations where you need flexible relief such as asylum or a waiver that involves persuading the immigration authorities to offer you those benefits. At times when you have been notified that a deportation or removal proceeding is going to be started against you only expert legal representation can increase your chances of leave to stay.

Our immigration solicitors help you understand the regulations and policies in the context of your personal circumstances. However we cannot guarantee you a successful application, but we can give you honest insight into the processes involved. We increase your chances at succeeding in your application. If your chances of succeeding are slim, we advise you accordingly, saving you the time and money you would invest in an application that would turn out unsuccessful.

Lawyer client privilege in immigration cases.

Direct communication between you and the immigration officers are not protected by privilege. Unfavorable details showing up in your application for instance a criminal history can cause your application to get rejected at the drop of a hat. However if you discussed these unfavorable details with one of our solicitors they can make a proper assessment of your facts and find clauses that could still accommodate you.

We advise you on changes in immigration law.

Only lawyers can properly advise you on the latest changes in the UK immigration law and procedures. Changes occur often and these changes further make the process of applying for immigration rather complex without proper legal counsel. The lawyer knows what to do about each kind of visa situation, and with our help you can hope for a successful application.

We represent you in immigration trials.

Our advisers will stand with you and represent you for as long as your immigration matters take to resolve. We are there to help you if the Home Office finds something wrong with your application; we help you resolve the matter.

Immigration Solicitors do not work for the government; we have your best interests at heart. We stand ready to appeal on adverse decisions that deny your application or petition. We will guide you on what steps to take to achieve what you want. Government bureaucrats will not dare intimidate you if you have an immigration solicitor working on your behalf. They will not dare deny you your rightful benefits either.

Civil Litigation

Personal Injury Is Serious

Whether you’ve been terribly injured in a tragic accident or you feel that someone has been wrongly and untruthfully criticizing you in newspapers or online, you might have the need to call upon a civil litigation solicitor law firm. There’s a reason most people use specialized law firms for specific needs rather than having one lawyer who they know and trust personally: even though you may feel like he’ll do his best to represent you, and even though he might in reality be trying to do his best, one non-specialized lawyer will always have areas where his expertise is not up to the challenge of today’s complex legal frameworks.

This is where a civil litigation solicitor law firm is highly necessary, since a large law firm will always have many highly experienced lawyers who will be able to call upon each other’s expertise even if they themselves do not know everything about the situation. They will also have more personnel and resources to devote to your case, so you know that you are getting the highest level of personal service and faith in your lawsuit. This is certainly better than just going to one overworked personal lawyer, who might have several cases going on at one time and might not be able to devote his full time or attention to your case. It’s also certainly far superior to trying to represent yourself in court, which experts have found to have a success rate of less than one success for every three thousand failures. This is mostly because judges and juries do not trust the expertise of someone who represents themselves in court – often, judges and jury members will see someone who tries to represent themselves as a nut job.

I have had a lot of experience with hiring civil litigation solicitors in the UK, because I have lived in the UK all my life and, like many people, I have dealt with civil litigation suits many times in my long life. I have been both a plaintiff and a defendant in civil litigation suits, and I have tried many different types of law firms and independent lawyers, and I have found without a doubt that civil litigation solicitor law firms are the best option for just about anyone in the UK.

One time, I slipped on a patch of ice outside an optometrist’s office – this was my first experience with the civil litigation system. I twisted my ankle and fractured my coccyx (that’s the tail-bone), and since I work as a professional, high-end landscape artist, I could not be seen hobbling around on crutches with a giant pad on my rear end, as it would make it hard to attract potential new clients. This is one secret I have learned about attracting clients to my landscaping business – if it does not look like you can take care of your own body, no one will believe that you can take care of their landscapes.

In any case, my business operations and my rate of acquisition of new clients for my high end landscaping business suffered severely. As a result, I felt I was owed some compensation by the optometry firm whose footpath I had injured myself on, since my injury was primarily a result of the fact that their footpath was icy and horribly unsafe. This time, since it was my first time dealing with the civil litigation system, I tried representing myself in court – big mistake! It turns out that, since I am not a lawyer, I did not know very much about how the civil litigation system worked.

My case ended up getting thrown out of court on the grounds that several people had seen me wearing roller skates at the time of the accident, so they said that I had taken that risk upon myself and the fall and injury was mostly my own fault. I thought this was ridiculous – I am a very experienced roller skater, and I certainly would not have fallen if that patch of side walk had not been dangerously icy. Nonetheless, my lawsuit failed, and I was very upset – not only was I away from my business for three months because of their negligence, they got off scot-free.

I had learned my lesson from this experience, so the next time I slipped and fell (this time it was because the floor in a certain fast food restaurant was slick with grimy water) I retained the services of a lawyer that my mother had known for many years. He had helped her get out of a vast number of legal difficulties, so I thought that he might be able to help out with my situation. This time, when I fell, I knocked my head about terribly, and I woke up with a severe concussion, the pain and cloudiness of which has remained with me to this day.

This case, too, ended up getting thrown out – there was something about having been a sign that said “wet floor” but certainly I did not see this sign, or else I wouldn’t have walked onto that floor so carelessly – I’m not a moron. This time, I smartened up, and hired the services of a civil litigation solicitor law firm, and they won me a nicely sized settlement – I think their argument was that since I am old and nearsighted the sign did not provide me with enough of a warning. Thank God they were there for me.
