An impressive 6-year record of success
We have analysed Vladimir’s success rate in respect of the clients who instructed him and whose cases were completed during the 6-year period between 1 October 2017 and 30 September 2023. We note that during this 6-year period all but one of our clients who instructed Vladimir to prepare their applications achieved their aims.
The only client who has not succeeded had been convicted of a serious criminal offence and wanted to apply for a visitor visa. 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 and try. 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 client had a very difficult immigration history. His previous application, prepared by different representatives, had been refused and he was accused by the Home Office of submitting forged documents and using deception. He then remained in the country as an overstayer for 6 years. By the time he approached Vladimir, the client had a partner in the UK and wanted to regularise his stay in the country. Vladimir advised him that he had to leave the UK, that his application for entry clearance as a partner was likely to be refused but that, if that happened, his appeal should be allowed. This was exactly what happened. Once his appeal was allowed, the client was granted entry clearance as a partner and arrived in the UK.
All other applications prepared by Vladimir and concluded during this 5-year period were successful (and did not need to go through an appeal).
100% Success Rate*
Therefore, all Vladimir’s clients who instructed him during this 6-year period to prepare their applications and who were given more than 10% prospects of success at the beginning of their cases achieved their aims.
This incredible 100% success rate over the last 6 years is due to Vladimir’s unparalleled expertise, experience, thorough and diligent preparation of cases, and impeccable attention to detail.
Please note that Vladimir does not only take on clients with straightforward cases. This is evident from the case mentioned above where the prospects of success were poor. In total, almost half (i.e. 43.58%) of the clients who instructed Vladimir during this 6-year period sought his assistance after their previous applications had been refused/rejected or as criminal/immigration offenders (e.g. overstayers, illegal entrants, those who obtained leave by false representations, etc.). Whilst such cases usually have less than 50% chance of success, Vladimir has still been able to prepare successful fresh applications for them or win their appeals. Vladimir will never refuse to take your case on, however poor the chances of success. However, he will clearly advise you of the prospects of success so that you can make an informed decision whether or not you wish to proceed.

What Our Clients Say
"We chose Vladimir on recommendation for complex immigration matters. We were in a difficult situation after being rejected once by the UKBA so we decided to use him, and follow his advice. We are so glad we did and won an very difficult and complex case. His attention to every tiny detail and professionalism proved we’d made made the right decision. We had a deadline that we didn’t think we would ever meet but he did and the visa was granted immediately! We have already recommended him!"
"My sister recommended Vladimir to me to handle my immigration matter and he did a thoroughly brilliant job in handling my case, paying attention to every little detail and covering every loose end before submitting my application. His advice and support was a major contributing factor in my application being successful. He is a very professional lawyer and his knowledge in immigration cases is impeccable and I would gladly recommend Vladimir to anyone who is looking for a good lawyer."
"I used his services on several occasions for different issues. The most important was my immigration issue, when Vladimir managed to find a legal solution in a situation where the outcome seemed unfavourable. I was really impressed the way in which my application was prepared and presented. His expertise, exemplary professionalism and accuracy were essential in securing a successful conclusion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vladimir to anyone requiring immigration advice."
"I instructed Vladimir in July last year, my cases had been going on for sometime as I used two sets of solicitors in London who did not give me proper advice. I found this solicitor very informative, helpful, supportive and professional in every way. He was always available to give me good advice and submitted my application which has now allowed me to stay here with my family. I would recommend him to anyone seeking immigration advice."
"Vladimir comes highly recommended and his credentials are true to the letter. Vladimir helped me resolve my issue. He was attentive, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and more. He showed empathy as well as a proactive, hands-on approach. His approach set me at ease and I was able to logically re-assess my position. My well prepared application was granted, thanks to Vladimir. I would highly recommend his services and his firm for those who truly need lawyers with a human touch."
"Superb service from Vladimir Mikeljevic over the course of about a year. He was at all times informed, helpful, accessible, and very quick (i.e. typically the same day) in responding to any correspondence or matters that required attention. He retained the same calm, measured manner throughout, and when the visa submission office made a significant error, he acted immediately and decisively in a way that prevented it from becoming a problem. He gave clear advice from the start, and saw matters through to a smooth and successful conclusion. Outstanding service."
