Top ten tips for finding a UK immigration solicitor

Tip 1: Agree on Fixed Fees

Often law firms will charge exorbitant fees by concealing hidden costs.

Westkin Associates prides itself on its transparency and fair pricing. We will agree a fixed price with you so that you know what you are paying for from the start.

Tip 2: Look for experience

Given the ever-shifting nature of immigration law, it is essential that your solicitor not only holds the appropriate qualifications but also the experience to handle your case.

Westkin has over 30 years of combined experience and 20 expert solicitors.

Tip 3: Visit their website

To better understand a law firm, its services and its ethos; it is always a good idea to visit their website.

Tip 4: Understand your needs

It is always advised whenever engaging in legal services that you have an idea of what is needed.

Unlike other law firms Westkin has a strong commitment to honesty and will provide you an initial assessment of your case over the phone. This will help you understand your needs better.

Tip 5: Get your documentation right

Avoid law firms which reuse generic documents. Not only will this not highlight the importance of your case, but it may often contain inaccuracies which are detrimental to your application.

Westkin always tailors its documents to the client’s case and highlights the applicant’s strengths.

Tip 6: Meet directly with your representative

When finding a solicitor it is important that you meet with them to ensure that you have a positive relationship and so that they understand your needs.

We hold an impressive team of advocates who will represent you in court.

Tip 7: Pick a firm with strong ethics

Certain law firms are notorious for their poor ethics and sense of principles. They will often make promises to clients and the quickly abandon said promises when it suits them.

Westkin Associates stands behind its principles and words. We promise a fair price, honesty and to stand by you through every step of your application.

Tip 8: Look at the firm’s track record

When choosing an immigration law firm to represent you remember to look at their track record and reviews.

Westkin Associates is proud of its successful years of delivering high-quality legal services and its reviews reflect this.

Tip 9: Choose an immigration firm that can act fast

Immigration cases can take an excessive amount of time and if your application is delayed by poor representation you may be denied leave.

Within 24 hours of your consultation we put the entire plan and advice into writing and send this over to you. We rapidly deal with cases to ensure that we meet the Home Office’s deadlines.

Tip 10: Plan ahead

If you are in need of an immigration solicitor, it is likely that you will need repeat services. You may be applying for an extension, or a visa for a family member, or you may even apply for “Indefinite Leave to Remain”. Certain firms will take advantage of this and prolong your applications.
