  • Member of Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association

My recent experience with Freeths representation was exceptionally executed and beyond expectations. Ms.Stothard was ultra-professional, innovative and extremely organized. Dealing with solicitors in many countries I can attest that Freeths is beyond doubt “top drawer”. I heartily recommend Freeths without reservation.
