Why choose us?

Immigration law is an extremely complex and fast-changing area of law. As reported by the Guardian in August 2018, ‘Home Office officials have made more than 5,700 changes to the immigration rules since 2010…making the visa system nearly impossible to navigate, according to senior judges and lawyers. The rules have more than doubled in length to almost 375,000 words, resulting in a complex system which has been called “something of a disgrace” by Lord Justice Irwin and prompting a radical overhaul’. These changes continue to occur at an alarming rate.

The recent amendments to the immigration law and policy have introduced strict criteria, which has made it much more difficult for applicants to meet the relevant requirements. A refusal of your application can result in you not being allowed to join your family or separation from your family, losing your job and permission to work, not being able to start or continue your studies, detention and removal from the UK. Furthermore, appeal rights have been removed for many immigration applications. This is all part of the hostile environment for immigrants created by the Home Office.

Therefore, it is of a crucial importance that your application is prepared to the highest standard and that you instruct a representative who has the required expertise to assist with your case.

Vladimir’s 100% Success Rate*


Vladimir will always give you an expert and honest assessment of your chances of success at the beginning of your case.

All Vladimir’s clients who instructed him during the last 6 years to prepare their applications and who were given more than 10% prospects of success at the beginning of their cases achieved their aims.

The only client who has not succeeded had very difficult circumstances and Vladimir warned him at the commencement of his case that ‘the prospects of success in your application are extremely poor and below 10%’. The client, nevertheless, decided to proceed. At the end of his case and despite not succeeding, he wrote the following message to Vladimir: ‘Thank you very much for your fantastic support! Pity regarding the outcome, but again very impressed with the quality and effort that was put into this.’ One further client had his application refused; however, his appeal, prepared by Vladimir, was allowed and the client was granted a visa.

This excellent success rate is due to Vladimir’s unparalleled expertise, experience, thorough and diligent preparation of cases, and impeccable attention to detail.
