VLADIMIR MIKELJEVIC: EXPERIENCE, ACCREDITATION and QUALIFICATIONS

Our immigration department is headed by Vladimir Mikeljevic who is a Solicitor and a Partner. Vladimir has been practising immigration and asylum law since 1996 (i.e. for over 20 years) and has been head of the immigration department at various leading firms of solicitors for more than 15 years.

During his career, Vladimir has dealt with approximately 2000 immigration cases. He has presented over 600 appeals in Immigration Tribunals. He has given many interviews to regional and national newspapers, radio stations and television. He has experience in preparing numerous applications for visas, extensions of stay in the UK and settlement (permanent residence) in all immigration categories, together with European law, nationality, human rights and asylum applications. Immigration law is Vladimir’s only area of practice and he devotes all his time to keeping up-to-date and on top of this fast-changing and extremely complex area of law.

Vladimir is one of the most experienced immigration solicitors in the UK.

Vladimir became accredited both as an Immigration Caseworker and a Supervisor when the Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme was introduced in 2004. He was initially accredited at Level 2 (Immigration Law Senior) and in June 2011 the Law Society elevated his accreditation to the highest Level 3 (Immigration Law Advanced), which is an accreditation level reserved only for those who the Law Society considers to have:

a)    a high level of understanding of immigration and asylum law and practice;

b)    successfully managed a range of complex cases;

c)    consistently delivered high-quality service to clients; and

d)    respect and credibility in immigration and asylum practice.

There are only 24 other firms of solicitors in England and Wales that have a solicitor accredited to Level 3 (Immigration Law Advanced), of which only 8 are outside London (as of 1 April 2018).

Vladimir is a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association and, therefore, always on top of any developments in this complex and fast-changing area of law. He was recognised for “outstanding legal practice” by the Good Lawyer Guide in 2010 and 2012.

On Sunday, 10th April 2016 the Sunday Times published their first supplement listing the Top 175 Solicitors in the UK based on reviews on the independent consumer ratings website VouchedFor.co.uk. We are proud, but not at all surprised, to say that Vladimir Mikeljevic was featured.
