Why Use Immigration Specialists?

With all the advice that is available on the internet these days, you may be wondering why there is still a need to use immigration specialists. In this article we look at why it is still better to use an immigration specialist lawyer than trying to navigate the immigration system on your own.


A search of the internet reveals many places from where you can get information on immigration topics, but are these sources experts? Are they going to help if they are wrong?

It is always best to follow the advice of qualified practitioners who have studied the law and have experience in the field dealing with issues just like yours on an almost daily basis. It is this knowledge and experience that means you get great value when you deal with a fully qualified immigration lawyer.


As well as offering a variety of advisory services we also ensure that you are never on your own, our staff are specially trained to ensure that all of your immigration needs are taken care of and they work at the highest levels to ensure your satisfaction and to maximise your chances of a good outcome in your visa application or appeal.

Submitting applications

We help you create your application and make sure that everything is in place and that you are eligible for the visa that you are applying for. Having a fully qualified immigration solicitor take care of your case ensures that your application will be made perfectly and without errors, this means your chances of refusal are lowered significantly.

Checking documents

Another of our main services is checking documents before they are submitted to the Home Office. Many of the visa routes require some type of documentary evidence and it is the supply of this evidence that will help support or cause the refusal of your application. It is vitally important that your paperwork is completely correct and the provided evidence for everything that is asked for by the home office is provided. They do not work in leniency and errors will be punished with an almost instant refusal. Please do not take any chances with your visa application, get in touch with us today and we will help to check your documents and make sure that the documentary evidence you're providing is what is required for the visa.

Support At Appeal

If the worst case scenario has happened to you and your visa application has been refused do not panic. Another service that we offer is being able to support you at the appeal stage we can help to lodge an appeal for you and ensure that your appeal has the best chance of success by making sure you are well represented at tribunal if it is necessary. We have helped many customers such as yourselves come back from a refusal and get the visa that they applied for in the first place. Quite often having a qualified solicitor in your corner will help to iron out any errors that may have been made at submission or to help bring to light new facts that will assist your case. The judge at the tribunal is impartial and they have the power to overturn a rejected visa application. For more information please get in touch and we can talk you through the process of lodging an appeal and the process of defending yourself or using our service to help with your defence.

Are all of your staff qualified?

Yes all of our staff meet the requirements of immigration law and you will always speak to someone who is an expert in the field. Do not fear that we will put you with somebody who does not know what they're talking about, as you want to ensure you have the maximum chance of success with your visa application.

Can you guarantee that my visa application will be accepted?

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that all of our clients will be given a visa, this is due to the individual situations of those clients and we need to take into account that every situation is slightly different. Some people unfortunately will not be eligible for a visa and in those situations it is limited to what we can do to help them, for this reason we do not guarantee success at every occasion but we will ensure that you have the maximum chance of success and we will also ensure that you know as early as possible if it is unlikely that you can gain a visa due to your eligibility.

How much does it cost

The cost of our services will very much depend on the service that is required by the client, for this reason we cannot give guideline figures and it is best that you speak to us directly so that we can give you a quote that will reflect your individual needs and requirements. As you understand there is a large difference between perhaps someone just making an application and somebody needing a fully-fledged team in order to defend an appeal, with this in mind it's surely impossible for us to quote for every individual person in one place. If you would like a free no obligation quote please contact us today and one of the members of our team will be happy to talk you through your options and give you a guideline of what it will cost you to use our services.

How we can help

As specialist immigration solicitors we are qualified to help you, we are knowledgeable and experienced and have worked with many many customers such as yourself and helped them to get the resolution to their visa issues. If you want to discuss your needs then do not hesitate to contact us. If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about our services further then please give us a call.

Investing over 2 million pounds is defintely not a routine decision. We had to make sure that the Tier 1 investor immigration lawyers london that we would be picking has to be one of the best within the Tier 1 investor category. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they were able to get us not only the Tier 1 investor visa but also suggested profitable investment portfolios in addition to what we already had in mind.
The Home Office refused my Tier 1 Entrepreneur extension application. This meant that my family and i would have to go back to Jordan and my business would close down. I needed a good immigration lawyer to put in a very strong appeal. I approached Reiss Edwards based on a friend's recommendation and they put together a very strong appeal. I read the grounds of appeal and I knew that this was a winner. A big thanks to Joe who worked tireless on my appeal.
I am glad that i instructed Reiss Edwards on my visa matter.

It started with a 20 minutes free immigration advice. I met with Amar to discuss my ILR refusal. He gave me a great deal of quality advice and decided to take on my messy case. I had doubts on the merits of my case by he was relatively convinced he could win it. That made me quite secure.

To be honest, things did not start as quick as I would have wanted, but they kept on communicating the process and state of things to me

A big thank you to Verusha and Foram. They were also very helpful. Brilliant and informative.

Their fee was fair and reasonable, especially if you compare them to other law firms and immigration law firms in London; some of whom even told me that i would not be able to get an indefinte leave to remain in this country.

The process was long but was worth it. In the end, a big thank you to Reiss Edwards.
I have just had British Citizenship application approved. Prior to making the application, i was not sure which law firm i should hire to facilitate the paperwork. After a few hours of research, i decided to go with Reiss Edwards and i must confess that i wasnt disappointed.

The immigration lawyers at Reiss Edwards handled my case well and they really knew what they were doing. They were fully aware of what documents I needed and it was easy for them to tell if my case was going to be easy or not.

At the end of the day, I have not received my British citizenship within 3 months.

If anyone is looking for a good immigration lawyer to handle thier case, contact Reiss Edwards.
Fantastic Solicitors!!!

My wife's spouse visa extension application was refused by the Home Office and they gave her 14 days to leave the country. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they said "OK don't worry we will sort this out". They put together the list of documents for me to obtain and they prepared a bundle which was as thick as the printer it came out from.

We followed everything they asked us to do and in the end we won our appeal and got our spouse visa.

We can't recommend them enough and we have promised ourselves never to make any more UK visa applications without them.
The team of lawyers at Reiss Edwards are very professional and friendly people. Their experience in and around UK immigration law is quite extensive; be sure that you application is in safe and competent hands. My immigration matter was an indefinite leave to remain application based on Tier 1 on a self-employment basis. The immigration lawyers at Reiss Edwards made sure that the application was perfect and ready to be accepted. I got a positive decision and I recommend them highly for anyone who needs a UK immigration help.
This is the only firm that i spoke with that didn't ask for money before listening to me, will be using them again.
I used Reiss Edwards for my Tier 2 visa application and it was successful. The team was ever present and happy to answer my question.

The caseworker that dealing with my case went on holiday yet by case did not suffer one bit. Another lawyer stepped and took over the case without any hassle.
My Tier 1 Investor Visa was dealt with quickly and without issue. Would recommend Reiss Edwards as an Immigration law firm in London. Thank you to the team.
I contacted Reiss Edwards to help me with my wife’s UK settlement visa. They acted with utmost professionalism throughout the entire application. I spoke with Joe Dinh, he is an immigration solicitor and he is one of the best solicitors out there. He ensured that there was little to no room for error. At some point I thought he was over cautious. He remained calmed and continued to assure us on our immigration matter. Most people in his position would have panicked but he was calmed and continued to assure us. We received out positive outcome very quickly.

I have been using Reiss Edwards for three years now for my family's immigration application. Both for my initial application and extension. They are really affordable. The team of solicitors at this firm are probably one of the most efficient and economical in terms of cost. They offered free advice over the phone and spent good time with us before inviting us for consultation.

I used Reiss Edwards’ immigration lawyers to assist with my immigration matter and that of my family. It was an EX1 application. They dealt with the matter properly and even when complications were coming up from the Home Office, they helped resolve the issue properly. They are very professional and are very popular in London. I am happy to have worked with them.

It's a shame that you dont have an 'Excellent' star rating on here, as my experience with Reiss Edwards is nothing short of an excellent rating. They handled my application for an Indefinite Leave to remain in April 2014 and did my husband's one very recently including my daughter. Every time i have approached them, they have continued to treat me with courtesy, respect and patience. Amar was indeed a very thorough and professional gentleman. He is very knowledgeable, corporative and engaging. He responded to my emails, calls and enquiries promptly. He was always reassuring. I could not have asked for a better Immigration service.

I would recommend them over and over again for anyone looking for an immigration advice.

They gave me a free immigration advice when i called them, and the quality of the advice was something other charge thousands for. If you need a particular, name, Amar would be it. He exemplifies, for me, the true, professional gentleman. He is a valuable asset to Reiss Edwards.

Kind regards
