As a direct access immigration barrister I started offering direct access work in London as soon as permitted by the BSB. The numbers were very much smaller than now and the infrastructure again a lot smaller.
Over the last few months I have received phone calls and emails from clients who I obtained visas for 2 – 3 years ago. This is both really rewarding and deeply gratifying that people feel that the service was good enough to return to.
It also shows that we have been able to deliver on our goals, that of providing a boutique quality service.
If you are someone who has previously had advice and who has previously gotten a visa through me and my team and whose visa is due for renewal in the next 6 months or so, please feel free to get back in touch. Its better to get back in touch 6 months or so in advance in case of any changes or needs to show any money etc and secondly it prevents last minute panics. There is also one major benefit -cost. Or to put it another way if you have previously used my service you will find that the price you pay will not be beaten by any other reputable solicitor which coupled with the proven track record should be an offer not to be missed.
