I searched about the best immigration lawyer in London on the internet and I saw LEXLAW\'s name on the top with others, I decided to hire them as my lawyers. I was applying for a spouse visa and was concerned that I didn\'t have enough funds to have a strong case. LEXLAW were incredibly helpful. They advised me every step of the way and after a year long battle in the Tribunal, I was granted a spouse visa. All thanks to LEXLAW, especially Aisha Choudhry and Bimal.

Indefinite Leave to Remain Application
With a reference from a very close friend, I decided to first use LEXLAW Solicitors for help with my application for further leave to remain. I therefore arranged a meeting with Bimal Kotecha to discuss this and with their help my application was submitted and approved for further leave to remain until April 2015.
After further discussion with Aisha Choudhry and Bimal Kotecha, I decided to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain in January 2015. Initially I was advised to apply for my ILR by postal application however because of some concerns I decided to go for ILR on a premium appointment at Croydon PEO and booked my appointment.
On the day of my application at the Home Office, I was accompanied by Sindy from Lex Law Solicitors who presented my entire set of documents and it all went smoothly without any hassle and my application for ILR was approved.
Before this application, I had visited many consultants and spent a lot of money to get the right information about my case but did not receive any clear advice and most of these professionals I met did not have a clue about ILR criteria.
Afeefah, Sindy , Bimal and Aisha helped me a lot and with the mercy of God, my application sailed through.
The overall representation of the application organised by LexLaw was extremely good and professional with special thanks to Afeefah and Sindy who put a lot of effort in to prepare this application.
In summary, the overall services offered by LEXLAW were very good and I knew that I was in safe hands. Great group effort and very well presented application.
I have no hesitation in recommending Lex Law Solicitors who have a great team and they know what they are dealing with. LexLaw has provided excellent advice in immigration matters. The team were professional and supportive throughout the process and showed a solid understanding of the situation I was dealing with.
As advised by Bimal and Aisha I have to wait for one more year to apply for my citizenship application. Off course I am going to use Lex Law Solicitors services in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
Response: Dear Shahbaz, It was a pleasure assisting you in preparing your ILR visa application for same day submission at the visa centre and we are pleased with the successful result. We would be happy to assist you again in the future and thank you for recommending us to others. Best regards, Afeefah and the Immigration Team.
