  • Shepherd and Wedderburn guided me through my Indefinite Leave to Remain application with such ease and took all the worry out of dealing with the normally stressful and time consuming process. The firm was recommended to me by a family member living in Scotland and, despite me living in London, I could not have had a smoother correspondence with a more personable and friendly team. They were always a phone call away and it was comforting to know I wasn't going it alone. From the London firms I looked into, Shepherd and Wedderburn represented great value for money. I would definitely use their services again.

  • Jacqueline agreed to challenge my daughter’s visa refusal in the Immigration Tribunal. The case was very complicated. We needed serious legal help and support. We got the outcome we needed and my daughter’s appeal was successful.
