  • Testimonials:

    “I was represented by Alexis Slatter from Richmond Chambers and I was really impressed with how professional, knowledgeable and helpful he was. My case was not a straightforward one and we had a very tight timeframe but thanks to Alexis being so organised and great at his job, we managed to out-smart the home office, resulting in them withdrawing from the appeal hearing and soon after they granted me a visa. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking for representation”
    Stacey Kemp – appeal against decision to refuse leave to remain as an unmarried partner allowed

    “I am very happy with the service provided by Alexis Slatter, in order to get Permanent Residence Card. Alexis was very professional, trustful, honest, reliable with an outstanding knowledge of Immigration Law. Great communication skills and meticulous attention to detail. Alexis was thorough and approachable at all times and if I had a query, I would get a call or email back and the outcome was 100% successful. Would strongly recommend. Best barrister I have ever come across.”

    Tim Lane – granted entry clearance as a spouse

    “After one failed self application we phoned many immigration specialists and Alexis and his team at Richmond Chambers came out head and shoulders above the rest. We were carefully guided through the whole settlement visa procedure and no stone was left unturned which resulted in the spouse visa finally being granted by UK immigration.”
