We conducted research to find a trustworthy legal firm, and this led us to UK Migration Lawyers. From the first phone call, we were instantly at ease. We were driving to some very aggressive time lines, and the expertise of and access to the professional staff was excellent. Direction was provided on all aspects of the application, and all questions were responded to quickly and accurately. It took ~5 months from the time we lodged the application to the time the resident card arrived; this exceeded our expectations. We recommend that you use UK Migration Lawyers for residence card applications. They helped us to get a timely and positive outcome; thanks to the team. November 2015 (link)
