  • 5 star review  Having has a massive setback when my wife had to leave the country, we contacted the solicitors and they fitted an appointment in the very next day. They fully explained the situation which was to me as clear as mud. and advised on a plan of action. they made the whole process pain free and i was kept fully updated every step of the way. Our dealings were with Mudassir Ali and i can not praise his handling of the situation enough, he certainly went above and beyond to ensure everything was done and completed in as short a time as possible and with as little disruption as possible. Thank you for all your assistance. My wife returns in December so a great result

  • 5 star review  I Applied for my wife's entry clearance visa in January 2020 using the priority service, hoping we’d get a decision in 4 weeks. Our case was handled by madasser. He is very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the application process. Unfortunately Due to covid-19 our case was delayed. It was an agonising 6 month wait! During the 6 months i was updated Whenever possible by Madasser. Then thankfully on 24/07/2020 my wife got her visa😊. Thank you Madasser for your help you are highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  I contacted Whitehorse Blackmans Solicitors as I needed help with my British Citizenship application. I was thoroughly and patiently guided through the maze of the questions I had by Mudassir over the phone, followed by an appointment at their office. Everyone at the office were so lovely, welcoming and helpful. Having had horrid experience with immigration solicitors in London before, I was so pleasantly surprised at Mudassir’s efficiency and commitment to his work. Everything went incredibly fast, with my application being ready and sent off within a week. I am so thrilled to say that I received my British citizenship a few days ago! The entire process took less than two months, mainly thanks to Mudassir’s incredible efficiency and organised hard work. His work was also complimented by the lady at the Biometrics office, letting me know that my documents were uploaded in such an incredibly organised and proper manner, allowing them to move forward quicker and send my case off to the Home Office on the same day, speeding up the process considerably. All I have to say is a massive thank you to Mudassir for his fantastic work. I highly recommend him and Whiterose Blackmans Excellent experience *****
