A Y & J Solicitors’ Review

My family and I cannot thank enough to the team at A Y & J Solicitors who has put all their hard work and care into our settlement application. As a Tier 1 (General) Migrant, I was also affected by HMRC tax amendments prior submitting my settlement application. I approached A Y & J Solicitors, following a referral from my friend who encouraged me stating A Y & J Solicitors would be the best in securing my settlement. I have chosen to submit my settlement application at the Premium Service Centre, and on the same day, I was informed of my application retained for further inquiries. I was given a questionnaire to complete and a deadline to file additional documents with regards to my tax amendments of previous financial years while on Tier 1 (General). Yash and Diana assisted me with the completion of the questionnaire and prepared an additional set of legal representations without leaving room for the HOME OFFICE to refuse my application. Last week, I was overjoyed to be informed that our settlement (me and my familyÕs) application was approved, despite tax amendments. Amazing, talented, hard-working team. I am super happy.

If you are reading this review then you must need legal support like we did a year ago and you are confused don’t know who to trust or who to select as this side of life was completely unknown to you!! So please read our story as it might guide you to the right direction. We had an ILR rejection back in Aug,2016 and it was one of the nasty allegation which is hard to get rid off. We were in tears, needed legal support and we didn’t know any solicitors. So based on reviews we selected A Y & J solicitors to pursue our AR and then Judicial Review. I still remember the day of our refusal I left an enquiry on their webpage and the next day Diana called me and spent over 45 minutes to take our case history and booked us to see Yash. At that point she won my heart as by then we already experienced that most solicitors don’t even spend a minute over the phone unless and until you pay any consultation fee. Yash was very open and honest. He showed us the true picture and let us decide to pursue JR or not! So finally from JR submission until we received the outcome it took about a year. Throughout these time at every stage they kept us well informed at all times. Waleed took over our case half way through. He is a very genuine and efficient person. We never ever had to remind him about anything as he was always ahead of the game. We have gone through an awful journey where sometimes we felt to give up but the team helped us to gain our trust back. Team members are very knowledgeable, caring, trustworthy and friendly. Throughout the time there was excellent communication, they kept us informed as soon as they had an update. The best part was they knew our case in details and never missed a single point. I have seen many people during our JR journey who had a bad experience from their solicitor and kept on complaining about them. Honestly speaking We can’t think of a single moment where they didn’t meet our expectations! Thank you guys for everything you did for us. You probably won’t have any idea how grateful we are to you. Keep up the good work. Wish you all the best. We will definitely refer them to people who need legal support. We were truly touched by your service. P.S. You can trust them closing your eyes!!!!

I highly recommend AY & J Solictiors for specially to those who have complications in their immigration case, i.e. company tax that could be for yourself, or family. I would like to THANKS Yash Dubal and Diana Todirica for looking after my case. The whole team is very reliable, honesty and friendly efficient work. They make the whole immigration process looks so easy. In my case, I had complications with my company tax. AY & J Solictiors closely worked with my Accountant, considered and used each and every details to make my case strong enough to avoid any doubts. Lastly I would like to thanks again to the whole team. Great Work!! I highly recommend A Y & J Solicitors with out any hesitation. Regards, Hardeep

Tips to Choose a Right UK Immigration Lawyer

We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.

In this video, I will share some tips with you on how to choose a UK immigration lawyer.

There are five very important points you may wish to consider while choosing a UK Immigration Lawyer.

Number 1: UK immigration law is very specific, fast-changing and complex.  You should not entrust your future to an individual/company that does not fully comprehend the complexity of UK immigration law. Therefore, our first tip is that you may want to consider choosing a lawyer who specialises in UK immigration law and has a wealth of experience in dealing with UK immigration applications and/or/appeals.

Tip Number 2: You will need a lawyer who will be honest with you. This includes discussions about the success chances of your immigration case, total cost and tentative time frame.

Tip Number 3: A lawyer’s reputation often precedes them – look for a lawyer who is known for honesty. Check out client reviews to see what others have said. When many people rate the same lawyer as honest after their transactions, chances are good that you’ve found an honest lawyer. Check out for independent review platform such as TrustPilot for real and verified reviews from actual clients.

Tip Number 4: How about choosing a lawyer who loves immigration law? One who cannot wait to get started on your case. A passionate lawyer who regularly sees success in immigration matters and tends to deliver great results.

Tip Number 5: Always look for a lawyer who is Authorised and Regulated. In most cases, lawyers in the UK are regulated by the SRA – Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) or by the OISC. Professional certification or Awards are also good indications. It might be prominent on their webpage if they have this.

Finally, look for a lawyer who is always improving by staying up to date on the UK immigration rules and regulations, and is constantly upgrading their skills. This is particularly important in the UK immigration sector, where laws are changed frequently, and lawyers must know exactly what is required for each type of application or appeal.

If you look for these qualities in a lawyer, it is likely that you find someone who is going to take good care of your Immigration matter, while respecting you as a valuable, important individual.
