I cannot recommend Ms Awtani enough! After years of complacency, I finally took Ms Awtani's help in attaining a British Passport, on a friend's recommendation. She walked me through the process, which would have been really complicated without her help. Ms Awtani was extremely thorough and the whole application was handled with the utmost professionalism. She made the process smooth and efficient. The biggest surprise was that the application was handed in December, with an anticipated waiting time of a minimum of 6 months to a year. However only a month later I was sent notification that my application was successful! Thank you Ms Awtani.

Sushma successfully assisted my daughter on two occasions to overcome UK visa issues, the latest being a long struggle with the Home Office to grant my daughter her Indefinite Leave to Remain. I am glad that with this victory, Sushma has been able to maintain her 100% appeal record. Sushma is knowledgeable and remains calm & patient during the process and she does deliver at the end of the day. I have no hesitation in recommending her services to any one with UK immigration matters to solve.

I would highly recommend Sushma Awtani as a professional immigration lawyer. She consulted me on Tier 1 enterpreneur migration program and helped with with application process. I successfully received the visa within 2 week time. Everything went smooth since the moment she was introduced to me till the time when I got the visa.

Sushma has acted for me on several occasions and indeed so impressed was I with her service and ability, I have recommended others to her practice. This area of law is practiced by others but without the in depth knowledge and professionalism of Sushma. A 5* lawyer.
