Guys,

Just for everyone's info, I had used the services of ') to obtain a same-day appointment appointment services for my Tier1 visa extension.

I hired their services in late november for any dates between Jan 2012 and March 2012 . My visa was running out end of March 2012, and previous was on a work permit and had moved onto tier1 visa so could potentially apply earlier than others.

Despite the advantage of time on their hands, they were unable to get a same day appointment for me. To be honest, they rarely tried for it as I had to pay the full amount upfront!!!

So they waited and then asked me to send my docs for 'postal appointment'.

I had clearly hired their services only on their assurance to get a same day appointment, nothing else!!!

I could do the postal application myself as I had more than enough points and all my docs were straight forward, no complications anywhere, a simple slam-dunk case of tier 1 extension.

Further, when I requested a refund for their inability to get me a same day appointment, they wouldnt call me back or answer my calls.

Its been over 2 months where I have gone for a postal application on my own but this company has not refunded me yet.

Simple case of 'easy to take someone's money, but pains to return it back'.

For all you guys out there, looking for legal services, try avoiding them!!!

If you need to know more, feel free to email me - to verify if this is genuine or not...yes it is!!!

Regards,
Neil

Your comment does not appear to look advertising to me but the reason for editing should be it is hard to verify your claim and you commented this without providing any references to backup your story. Nonetheless, in my view, if what you are stating is correct it would really help others to see the name of the firm in question so they can ignore their services saving them both money and time.

However, I assume you must have signed some contract prior to hiring them and if not then you cannot really blame anyone but yourself for not being cautious and getting all the information.

From my personal experience, when it comes to immigration issues one should not blindly depend on solicitors or third-person's opinions a lot of times its best to do survey all the information our-self and what better place to come than here on expatforum :)
