    Ariel Brooks

    “My experience with Richmond Chambers was a positive one. Jasmine Theilgaard was the barrister responsible for my case, she was great. All I needed to do was to submit the documents that she requested and the application was successful. I recommend her and the law firm to anyone that needs immigration legal assistance.”

    Eneyo Harry

    “Jasmine Theilgaard of Richmond Chambers provided first-class legal advice to my family with an outcome that surpassed expectations both in terms of results as well as in speed.”

    Richard Waldburg

    “I highly recommend Miss Jasmine Theilgaard. My case may have been a rare and rather complicated one, however, my barrister successfully had a prompt turnaround to my case. This was the quickest outcome I have ever had, that I was granted within hours after attending my biometric enrolment. This is a result from all Jasmine’s hard work, by putting together all the relevant requirements and completing countless documents to support my visa application. Jasmine explained all the options in detail, she ensured every step of the process met their highest standards and that there were no room for errors. She focused on all areas and ensured I had clear understanding of the process which assisted with my decision making. Throughout the whole process Jasmine were very transparent to work with and always available to support further with my endless queries. I have gained more knowledge and clearer understanding of my legal matter now and I found a way to resolve within weeks with the help of Jasmine. I cannot address how relieved I am now to overcome the challenges on what was a decade of ongoing legal matter.”

    Thiviya Ramanathan

    “I can’t thank Jasmine Theilgaard enough for her guidance, advice and responsiveness throughout the application. Paul and Jasmine have always given me confidence because they are very professional, knowledgable and communicate clearly and helpfully. The Chambers’ systems are well tuned, making it easy to understand precisely what paperwork is required. They are both incredibly supportive, always very responsive to any questions or concerns and with a very strong attention to detail. Paul and Jasmine both exemplify exceptional client service.”


    “I highly recommend Jasmine Theilgaard as your immigration advisor … My English is not very good, but she was very patient and friendly, and explained to me clearly and accurately the legal provisions … I’m going to start a business in the UK, and looking forward to continuing to work with Jasmine. Her professionalism, seriousness and responsible attitude are the reasons why I choose to continue working with her, and as her client, I am very happy to recommend her.”

    “I am so happy to have worked with Jasmine Theilgaard. This year has been especially tough with Covid-19 and the restrictions put in place. Jasmine was able to help me out whenever I needed and always updated me with the latest information so that I may make the best decision. I am very happy that I am now studying in London and am not stuck in another country because I had to make my application from abroad. Thanks so much Jasmine! Highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with their visa!”

    Danny Grome

    “I am very pleased with the quality of service RCIB has provided. Thanks to Jasmine Theilgaard this time who took care of my Naturalization application, I am grateful. Check her out! Her professionalism and quick response to my every query has provided me the peace of mind that I need especially at these unprecedented times. For 2 consecutive years, they have been my go to legal adviser for 2 applications. For my ILR last year and for my British Citizenship this year that took only 2mos to get approved. I highly recommend this law office. More power to RCIB!!!”
