We like to thank Rita Kotecha for dealing with our immigration cases very efficiently and with great patience, looking into every trivial detail and thereby achieving success in both the applications, and getting a quick decision. Every step was executed by Rita, until all the details including getting appointment times and payments were done, thereby leaving us with peace of mind. Whenever any communication was required, Rita was always available and returned all our calls promptly, guiding us at all steps. We highly recommend the company and personally Rita Kotecha for advise and issues related to any immigration cases.

I have held off writing this review until now as I didn’t want my emotions although positive to falsely paint a picture which is untrue to the service provided. Rita Kotecha has been amazing throughout the process. She has really cared and dealt with my families situation as if it was her own. She has been accessible at whatever ridiculous o’clock I’ve called her after finishing work and any unsettling or concerning turn or change my case took Rita was not too far away or ever too busy to be contacted to either reassure or to put the situation right. Her experience and expertise have been evident from the start and what has shone even more has been her compassion and care. Not only she’s an exceptionally intelligent, professional and experienced lawyer, but also a caring, considerate and lovely human being. My family and I cannot thank Rita enough. Aug 2023

I started my visa journey on the wrong route of EUSS. This was refused for obvious reasons. Both myself and husband became conscious of whom to use again.

Rita has managed immigration matters for me for several years now and she has never let me down. She is an excellent solicitor who is skilled at maintaining good customer relations and highly meticulous in her approach. Rita is eager to fulfil her clients' expectations and will go above and beyond to make sure you receive the level of service promised at the beginning, through to the end, giving the impression that it was a smooth and seamless transition with the results you desired, despite the tendency of outside sources to move the goalpost and cause issues in a process. Rita's responsiveness to urgent and sensitive matters makes her an asset to her profession, and I consider it a privilege to recommend Rita to anyone requiring immigration services. Aug 2022

Spouse visa application with dependent - Rita's record and reviews speak for themselves, she gets results. Absolutely thrilled with the outcome and service provided. I appreciated Rita's expert advice and candour throughout what was a very stressful process. She was thorough and detailed in the preparation of the application and clearly has vast knowledge in this area. She also provided a calm, impartial voice during times of frustration with delays etc.
Definitely would recommend to anyone else going through the visa application process. April 2022

The true definition of -sent. Rita made my dreams come true - When I reflect on my professional achievements, career growth, reasons for my happiness, I realised that without Rita, my story would have ended back in 2017. Rita played a pivotal role in my life in such a way that, I'll always feel indebted to her.
She approaches her cases in such a personal and target-oriented way such that, it allows you to form a positive, strong and working relationship with her. She is very organised, methodical and able to see your case from a holistic perspective. I honestly can't thank her enough.

Although, it feels like yesterday when I was sat in her office, complaining on why I didn't have to write stories for each 66 photos, I submitted for my application. It's taken me few years to realise the significance of it, I am glad I listened and I am better for it😂???

Thanks to Rita, I am a professionally recognised engineer, a volunteer that added value to my community, I was able to marry my soulmate and I'm now looking forward to being a Dad👍???

A light at the end of the tunnel! - Rita was great at accommodating my late appointment, direct and straight to the point, very knowledgeable and made a difficult time manageable due to her experience and wisdom, i can’t thank you enough for your help! you have been a star - Feb 2022

Student visa - I was stuck in a very difficult situation and rita helped me in that situation and was able to get out of it. She spent a lot of time in the case and was very helpful in every situation-Jan 2022

Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist.
