With effect from 1st April 2013 the coalition government removed Legal Aid funding from most non-asylum immigration work.  We continue to do asylum work under legal aid and other immigration work that remains in scope for legal aid, subject to the applicant meeting the necessary requirements.  Where there is no legal aid we offer competitive rates.  We will always discuss our charges with you at the outset of your case.


New enquiries

We can take details of your matter by telephone. Due to our busy practice and the fact that we are a relatively small department, we can only accept calls on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

Please note that we cannot take drop in enquiries.
