We can assist you with all aspects of immigration law. This includes any problems concerning visiting, working, studying, settling or conducting business in the UK.

Why Choose Us for Immigration

SJS Solicitors is an accredited member of the Law Society’s Immigration & Asylum Accreditation Scheme. This is awarded to firms who have an extremely thorough understanding of the UK's immigration and asylum laws. SJS Solicitors are proud to hold Level 2 membership, and our Principal Solicitor, Mrs. Sukul, holds supervisor status with over 17 years of experience fighting for her client's immigration rights. SJS Solicitors have been accredited since January 2006.

We are fully aware of the fact that the United Kingdom immigration laws are ever changing and can be very complex. It is therefore essential that you consult us for specalist legal advice before making any application that concerns any aspect of immigration law and the UK.

Since 6th April 2015, the implementation of Sections 15 of the Immigration Act of 2014 as well as Sections 82 and 84 of the Nationality Immigration Asylum Act 2002, sets out the rights of appeal to the Immigration Tribunal. A person may appeal to the First Tier Tribunal only where the Secretary of State’s refusal decision relates to a breach of that person’s human rights.

We can help you with the preparation, filing, case management and representation of your appeal to the First or Upper Tier Tribunal as well as instructing specialist immigration counsel to deal with the representations at the tribunal appeal hearing.

Our work will consist of our specialist immigration team preparing your appeal against a Home Office refusal of an immigration application, entry clearance application or human rights claims to the continuation of the appeal hearing.

If instructed, our team will start by:

  • Taking a detailed statement from you and any other family members or friends relevant to your appeal
  • Advise on the evidence required and submit any documentary evidence you can provide in support of your appeal
  • Liaising with the court and ensuring compliance with any directions made by the court
  • Arrange specialist Counsel to represent you at the hearing

SJS Solicitors have been accredited by the Law Society at both a Level 2 and a Supervisor Level for Immigration and Asylum cases and as such are very well placed to deal with your appeal matter.

The above are guidelines requirements but there are other requirements which will be dealt with once we are instructed. When our immigration team at SJS Solicitors submit these appeals on behalf of our clients we always ensure that in each and every case that all potential and available evidence is properly sought, pursued, obtained, and assessed before any application is submitted to the Home Office. Further we continue to represent you after the appeal has been submitted to the best of our ability.


Our Fees for an review of this type varies depending on the complexity of the case but as a guideline will start in the region of £1875 + VAT, this includes our consultancy fee of £125 + VAT, which includes a 45 minute meeting with our Principal Solicitor where we discuss the details of your case, and allow you to decide if you would like to proceed with instructing our firm, if you decide not to, only the consultancy fee is payable. Our fees do not include any Home Office fees or disbursements which have to be paid separately.

Our consultancy fee includes:

  • A 45 minute meeting with our Principal Solicitor
  • A client care letter detailing all advice given in the meeting sent within 24 hours
  • The option to choose if you want to instruct our firm or not for your matter
