What clients say

I thank solicitor David Thayabaran & his team for successfully getting my ILR Visa and all my family members ILR Visas. Six times, I have applied Visas (Tier 2 and ILR) for me and my family members through him. Five times, Visas were granted successfully in very short time period except first Visa which was rejected by the negligence of UKBA. That was also rectified by his first attempt in the court. Without any court arguments, my Visa was granted in the court by his proceedings. The solicitor fees were very reasonable & acceptable too. We are very obliged for his support and guidance to get ILR for us. I highly recommend him and his firm.
