“I will never forget your so much patience with me…you are always my amazing solicitor. The BEST one in the UK.”
“Please allow me to express my deepest and happiest gratitude to you and your office for the, what, 21+ months (!!!) that you have championed [our] case! It’s a huge win for all of us, so congratulations to you all as well!”
“I also wanted to express my gratitude again for the excellent service you provided. I had my ceremony on Thursday and it was a surprisingly emotional event. Thank you and I will continue recommending you to anyone who thinks about embarking on the citizenship journey.”
The wonderful solicitors Turpin Miller got everything together. Such was the quality of the evidence they collated that the FTJ asked me to pass on his thanks for an "exceptionally well put together bundle". We then had a total of 7 witnesses to call and again Turpin Miller organised everyone so that they were on hand to testify remotely when required.
The entire process was very well organised. Outcome of all this diligence? Appeal allowed on the day after being told "I don't need to hear from you..." This is a good example of how being a great lawyer is rarely just about the advocacy; the preparation that solicitors do in the background as part of the legal team is often the most important part and is sometimes overlooked; particular thanks to Jo Renshaw, Zahra Govani & Ndo Bikishoni
“Words cannot express how much we appreciate what you did . Thanks for saving us, I don’t know what would have happened to my boys. But now they can stay in the country of their birth and finish their education.”
