So, tell us about yourself?
Client: I am an Iranian citizen, I grew up in Tehran and I have a wife and two kids, both girls actually. I was working for an Oil & Gas company for many years, I started there as my first job and worked my way up to a manager.
The company wanted to explore opening an office in Europe to following the Nuclear deal. I put myself forward as I saw it as a great opportunity to come to Europe, a place I always wanted to move to. It was left to me however to try and find out all the law, costs and lawyer, this was a little bit scary for me at first I have to admit.
How did you find us?
Client: Well I thought the UK would be the best bet because there is a large Oil & Gas presence there, plus I was more comfortable with the language. Also I knew the UK has the best schools and from what I have found out after living here for 12 months, some nice Iranian restaurants!
I spoke to a few “visa companies” in Iran at first but I was not very convinced to be honest, they did not seem very professional and I had heard may stories of peoples money being lost without any application at all.
So I went online and searched “Immigration lawyer”, at first at I got almost too many results, so I had a look at each one to see if any thing gave me a good feeling. Many of them had nice websites but it was still very hesitant, I did not want to make a mistake because this was my opportunity and if it was refused my company may have blamed me for picking the wrong lawyer.
I then decided to search for Immigration lawyers in London to make it more specific. I emailed the first five companies the same message and waited.
Westkin was the first company to call me, the person I spoke to was very friendly and explained the law to me, I didn’t even know about the visa that they had suggested. We spoke for 20 minutes over the phone and I was happy about this because it cleared up many confusing things for me.
So what made you choose Westkin?
Client: Well of the other five companies one did not reply, two did not message me for three days and the last one called me later that afternoon, they were very nice on the phone as well.
However what made me choose Westkin was that they did everything that they promised. After the call the lawyer emailed me everything I needed to know together with all the questions I had asked, such as the price and what they would do for us, this was very useful because I had to go back to my boss many times to discuss what I had found out.
I decided to go ahead and have a consultation with Westkin, I was booked in with a specialist lawyer for my case and it was clear that they were very knowledgable, we had a long video chat on Skpye and I ended the call feeling very confident. The lawyer also sent me the detailed letter the next day to confirm everything they had said.
I told Westkin that there was a few things that I needed to sort out before I could apply such as my English test and some documents that were required from my company before we applied. To my surprise Westkin called me regularly to check in on me and to provide support and advice on what to do, they even spoke to my boss to explain some points. This was all before I had made a payment to them. This is when I knew that they were honest lawyers and wanted to help me. The other firms just asked for money before they would even speak with me.
So how did it all go? Would you recommend Westkin?
The case process went really well, they did everything that they promised and I got my visa in two weeks!
I was so grateful because I knew this could change the life of my girls, I nearly cried with happiness when I got the decision.
I would definitely recommend Westkin to others, in fact I already have introduced many clients to them, I am proud to be able to do that. I tell people just to call them and they will know for themselves.
We welcome any recommendations from past and present clients, we also welcome new clients to call us and experience the highest level of customer service that we always aim for.
