Client Reviews

At Simpson Millar I found the department very friendly and caring. I always knew what to expect when I went to see Sumita. My outcome was successful and I am now a proud British citizen.

Emma represented me to successfully obtain both my limited leave and Indefinite leave to remain. The first stage was a very long drawn out case which Emma helped me to fight. She went out of her way to ensure that I was alway kept up to date on any changes to case and chased up the Home Office on many occasions.

Given the complexity of the case, Emma always provided me with helpful advice that was easy to understand and she assisted me in choosing the best avenue to take.

Emma was always very empathetic and approachable. When she first took on my case I was still based in Leeds but I later moved to Manchester and continued to use her services. Her expertise and understanding of immigration law gave me confidence for a positive outcome. I was happy to travel between the 2 cities for follow-up appointments etc because I knew that my case was in very capable hands.

I would highly recommend Emma to anyone that requires representation including my friends and family.

Thank you Emma for all your hard work, without you I wouldn't be in the better position that I find myself in.

Your help has been invaluable and very much appreciated.

I was very satisfied with the service that provided by Emma Brooksbank. We had a very good communication about my case that was what I expected. It had achieved the outcome that I was hoping as well. Emma had told me very clearly what I needed to consider and know at different stages. It made me understand what was going on, what I needed to do and how long about I needed to wait.

I very appreciated the professionalism of Emma. She was very patient, considerate and supportive to deal with my questions and worries during the time of handling my case. As a client who didn't have any knowledge about immigration law and procedures, it was very important as it's like a leading stick to show me the direction. On the other hand, her sense of responsibility was impressed me a lot. I could even get her reply by email out of office hour.
