Support for Migrants

Our solicitors have extensive experience assisting asylum seekers, refugees and other people from abroad with immigration problems obtain the support they require in the UK from local authorities and central government.

We have an excellent record in obtaining results for clients who often come to us in desperate situations. We are able to give pragmatic advice, and work closely with immigration solicitors to ensure client’s problems are looked at in the round. We collaborate with a number of charities and refugee organisations, as well as receiving referrals from immigration, housing and family solicitors.
