At Immigration Advice Service, our values are what truly set us apart. Our specialist immigration lawyers and advisors have decades of experience in all areas of immigration law, and are specifically selected for their commitment to immigration and asylum work. In addition to being highly experienced, dedicated and passionate, many of our staff members have been through the process of immigrating to the UK themselves, either first hand or with family members and/or friends.

This has given them an unrivalled insight into the more personal side of the immigration process, which they are therefore able to see from both a human and a legal perspective. This enhanced understanding of what people are going through on the personal side, including of the impact of the process on people’s daily lives, means that the customer experience our clients receive from our advisors and lawyers is second to none.
The firm has grown consistently over the last few years. We are therefore large enough to provide a full range of immigration, asylum and citizenship services yet small enough to ensure that each client still enjoys the personal touch to our service. We conduct both private and publicly funded work and have been awarded the Specialist Quality Mark (SQM) for our Legal Aid work on immigration and asylum.

We have offices throughout the UK. Our services are therefore within easy reach, no matter your location. We believe that high quality, affordable, professional immigration advice should be accessible to all, so if you are not able to make it to one of our offices, we can provide helpful advice and guidance on the phone, or, if you are currently residing outside the UK, via Skype appointments.

I sadly doubt that Alex Givenson is actually a solicitor for immigration.

I do not believe that he has qualification in the subject immigration. But it was lied to me by this company that he would be. Also they lied that he will care about my case or would read an email that I had to write to him in advance.

That was not true.

I confirm what another person said about Alex Givinson. It was a very negative experience. And the 150£ are stolen. That is robbery.

Great service at the IAS London office. The immigration lawyer I was referred to (Uche) was very warm and friendly. She spoke slowly and clearly and made sure I understood everything she said. I would definitely recommend this service.

Many thanks to the Immigration Advice Service.

After a failed attempt to bring my partner to the UK we decided to get some help.

Shouldn't have waited before contacting them - the new application was prepared and submitted within a week of my initial appointment. Very clear and concise instructions and completed the confusing forms for us.

Partner's visa granted 6 weeks later.

Such efficient service. Will recommend them to everyone.

I had booked one hour appointment with IAS for advice on my FLR(M) application. Alex Givenson was the solicitor who attended the consultation. The day before the interview he phoned me, spent 30mins discussing my case and reminded to me that the face to face appointment on the next day will be for the remainder of the 30mins. On the day of the appointment he arrived circa 30mins late which he said was due to his train from Newcastle to Edinburgh got delayed. We sat together in a room and he sort of rushed through the appointment trying to be as general as possible on his advice. He finished the consultation in 15mins. I wouldn't recommend IAS.

I just want to say a big thank you to IAS (London) for the sound advice we recently took. It was reassuring to finally speak to immigration experts who understand the nature and complexity of my friend's immigration matter having spent over 15 years in the UK without right to remain. The advice and service has finally put my friend on the right track to help regularise her stay in the UK having wasted enormous time and resources with half-baked solicitors flocking around on the high streets.
I would definitely recommend this friendly and professional service to anyone no matter the complexity of the case.

Thank you so very much Ono!!!

I arrived to the UK on an EEA Family Visa and asked the Immigration Advice Service for help with the next step, applying for the Residence Permit. Agnes was great in explaining the process and what was required. She made me feel assured that all the information submitted was correct and I would get the Permit within 6 months (which I did). Agnes always answered my emails and text messages, and was very helpful and informative. I would highly recommend using this company, and will be in future. Thanks

I am very grateful to the Immigration Advice Service. Our advisor Uche Uwaezuoke was very helpful and gave us many possibilities as me and my partner were getting very worried. Now we both know which direction we are going to take. I would definitely recommend IAS.

I was very nervous about the immigration process. It was very comforting to have professionals who gave me realistic impartial advise. They helped me through the process giving me signpost along the way.

As a business, we had reached the point where we needed specialist international talent. Not knowing if we were eligible or how to apply, we contacted the IAS and arranged an advice appointment. Our Immigration lawyer spent two hours with us and advising us on all the requirements and steps to obtain a sponsor license and if our job vacancy would qualify to hire a foreign worker. We received written confirmation of the advice the next day and we are currently going through the process of applying for an sponsor licence with IAS. We've had such good customer service so far.

I was looking for advice on emigrating to Australia. I called up and arranged a telephone appointment. an immigration lawyer called me at the time of my appointment and went into such detail about what I was looking to achieve with emigrating to Australia and then went through what visas I could apply for. Thankfully the immigration lawyer sent me a written copy of the tailored advice I received for me to refer to when I finally come to apply for my visa.

My friend, once he graduated university spent weeks looking on the internet for information on a visa but found a lot of conflicting stuff. I told him that they needed an immigration solicitor so he contacted the immigration advice service who were able to advise him on what they needed to do to make an application. Long story short the visa was granted and now he lives here.

Helpful and prompt but only if chased. Overall, good results but more communication would have helped. Also, base office not in Glasgow so all the communication was via e-mail, not face to face. The site actually says they have an office in Glasgow but in reality this is not a permanent one.

I met my American partner 4 years ago. Being so part apart was a real struggle for us. I looked online for what visa options my partner had but the criteria didnt make any sense. I spent a good few days ringing round immigration solicitors to find the right one and I eventually went with IAS Immigration Lawyers. The service was fast and Uche really went into detail on what Visa we needed to apply for. Thank you so much Uche!"

Even though, they answered my questions about my visa, the assigned case manager had me waiting for over 40' on the first appointment. I could not wait any longer so I had to reschedule. This time I chose the telephone meeting. I was told they'd call me to reschedule, but they never did, so I chased them to get a time booked. When I finally managed to speak with the case manager, she did not know my meeting was going to be over the phone and she never apologised for being so late for the first meeting. She answered all the questions, but you could tell that she was not very happy to take that call. As I didn't speak for one hour, as I didn't have any more questions, she said I could email her if I had any questions. I did have another question, but I never got a reply. This is a joke. I am not recommending them to anyone. £200 is definitely too much for the service served.

My experience with IAS was great, I got the best advise from one of their Caseworker Saimah Razzaq ( Manchester Branch). I was confused regarding the next step to take on my immigration issue and I have moved from one solicitor to another but when I consulted IAS and Saimah Razzaq advised me, I knew I was at the right place and everything came out successfully.

We searched high and low for information regarding a UK spousal visa and after numerous phone calls and long lists of emails we were referred to Natalie Dolan with IAS in Liverpool. What a Godsend! Natalie is an expert at what she does! Always timely in response, accurate on every bit of information that we received from her, and extremely thorough on submitting proper documentation. After a long process (of what could have been more than a headache), we successfully received my UK Spousal visa all thanks to Natalie and her professionalism. We will be using her again in the future for the next renewal application and recommend anyone who wants an expert in this field to hire her service.

Hi my name is Hajar Ahmed and my solicitor was Natalie Dolan. Natalie was easy to speak to about my claim. She handled my case in a professional manner. She would contact me or my partner if the Home Office would need anymore information from me. She also handled the documents in a professional manner as well.

My friend was using the service your provide and recommended your service to me. I have also told all my friends about the service you provide excellent.

I would definitely recommend using IAS (Immigration Advice Service). As an EU citizen, I was very stressed about my status in the UK due to the Brexit vote and decided to apply for permanent residency with my husband. We had a terrible experience with our previous solicitor so we turned to IAS and it was the best thing we ever did. We were very stressed and sometimes quite impatient at how long the process took, but George Madubuike was so patient and professional! He got our applications through and they were approved very quickly! We are very thankful to him and his team and we will definitely use IAS again for our citizenship application.

After some initial difficulties with getting a response from my assigned case manager, we managed to get some time to complete the application. While I *could* have gone through the process on my own (I was surprisingly straight forward) I am glad that I gave myself the gift of working with someone who manages these applications as a profession. It was a big weight off my mind.

Such a scam. Ignore the fake reviews. If you want to do all the research by yourself, miss the deadlines, get wrong or even worse no advice, while paying through your teeth. These are your lawyers. Especially Houri Zahedi and Uche.

I came across IAS online when searching for immigration advice on Google.
I wasn't sure of the process or what I needed to do so I gave them a call to ask for help. We discussed my situation and they explained the service. I booked an appointment there and then.
I was introduced to Agnes who was my case worker. We sat and discussed the situation in depth and she advised me of my options. I went away for about 6 weeks to get everything that I needed together. When I had it all we arranged another meeting for Agnes to check everything prior to applying for the visa. We met again about 1 week after that to submit the visa application together online.
5 weeks later my fiance had entry clearance to the UK and will be here for Christmas!
The process was very easy and Agnes took care of me every step of the way. The price was competitive and the cover letter that went with the documents was excellently put together. Highly recommend using IAS and I will definitely use them in the future after my wedding when it is time to deal with the UKVI again.

My Mom visa has been refused two times and we had no hope to get family visa for her. This time because I was pregnant and I needed my mom more than anytime beside me, I made my mind to get a solicitor. I have found IAS through Google. First I have seen Mrs. Houri Zahedi and she told me if we get a solicitor our case may be 60% won this time. So she introduced Mrs. Abimbola for our case. She gave us useful information and asked me to provide too many documents , although it was very hard for me to ask my parents to prepare so many documents but at the end the best news was that my mom got her 6 month family visa. I just want to thank Mrs. Zahedi and Mrs. Abimbola for their help and support.

Following the second time of using the services of IAS, I felt impelled to leave a five star review...
On both occasions Natalie Doolan our case worker meticulously organised and referenced all our supporting documents alongside completing the application form and additional letter. She made the whole process of completing the further leave to remain application easy for us, taking away the stress of understanding all the legal jargon et al.
We will definitely be using IAS again and will be requesting Natalie to complete our case, as she has impeccable professional knowledge and has successfully got us through two complex applications for visas into the UK.

The IAS team worked painstakingly to prepare two detailed visa applications for our daughter's visitor visa. The second one (our fourth in total) was finally successful. They also provided valuable advice through the process that will no doubt assist in any future applications we submit. On occasion however, there were long delays in responding to emails and slipped timelines.

More than impressed with the service I received with IAS,especially with my case worker (Danielle Blake) whose professionalism and insight superceded my expectations with a positive outcome!!!
With a fixed fee which covers initial consultation, I is shouting from the roof to anyone seeking professional immigration advice. And to those leaving negative reviews, remember you have to meet certain criteria in order to achieve a positive outcome. IAS is not the home office !!!

The IAS were friendly and helpful from the moment I contacted them. They knew what they were talking about and helped me get a 6 month visa to the UK for my girlfriend who had previously been refused a visa. Highly recommended and I will be using them again. Abimbola and Houri were both especially helpful. Thank-you both. Best Regards George

Natalie Dolan, from IAS Liverpool, was amazing. She helped keep me calm when I was panicking about my visa, offered excellent advice, and kindly answered the millions of questions that I sent to her. I do not believe we would have won our appeal (or even made it to the appeals process) without her hard work and diligence. I am truly grateful to her.

Natalie Dolan (Liverpool branch) checked my documents which I submitted and successfully obtained the ILR visa. She was courteous, professional, very helpful with my questions. It was a simple process:
I called to ask about their service and price quotes, she asked me a few eligibility questions to determine if I was applying the most appropriate visa in my circumstance.
I dropped my documents and we scheduled a meeting where she highlighted areas of which I can improve on/edit/add.
It was a fair price too, compared to other immigration solicitors.
Very commended and excellent IAS service. Highly recommended. Thanks!
