I would like to thank the whole legal team of Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors in general for the service they have delivered to me and the excellent solicitors Mrs Zara and Mr David in particular for their honourable work and dedication to my case. Mrs Zara was a beacon of hope to my family during a time of uncertainty and desperation. Not only she managed to get my case solved in no time, her calm and positive attitude reflected on us and contributed largely towards raising the level of our confidence. My family and I are eternally grateful for the service she had delivered and I herby recommend Mrs Zara Shamal without reservations.

gulbenkian Andonian Solictors are not just Immigration lawyers but a family you can rely and count on even when the chips are down. Fadi took over my ILR complicated appeal case. It was a great experience and i received great service, which was the best. Fadi effectively and clearly communicated with me throughout the entire process and made everything easy and fast. Fadi showed his expertise in all immigration areas as he answered all our questions and concerns. I highly recommend anyone facing challenges with their visa application to place their trust with Gulbenkian Andonian. As I am writing this Review, I have just won my ILR appeal which was very complicated due to Gap and home office unlawful policy.thanks to Fadi, Dave, Zara, Caroline, Danny, Hayk, Sajo and Henry and the rest of Team Gulbenkian for a fantastic job well done.RegardsSafeer

An exclusive and amazing moment of truth from Gulbenkian Solicitors who have outstandingly and amicably strived, represented and rescued my wife from the wrath of eviction by the Home Office from UK after 18 years of overstay faltering. My spouse’s case had been declined by The High Court Tribunal on about 3 occasions with no room for appeal. Amazingly Gulbenkian Solicitors exceptionally teamed up and eloquently provided excellent customer service through a high degree of articulation, diligence and professionalism that has seen 1st Tier-Tribunal Immigration Judge granting my wife right of leave to remain in the UK. I highly recommend anyone with similar complex immigration situation and seeking legal status to use Gulbenkian Solicitors. Beyond no reasonable doubt, my wife’s situation was awfully difficult, but rest-assured a positive and unexpected solution has been successfully achieved.

My family and I will be eternally grateful to you for the opportunities you have allowed us to pursue by your assistance in the immigration process. All of your hard work is invaluable to us. Thank you for your professionalism and continued support. I really appreciate everything. It was a long journey, a long battle... I still remember when I met Mr dave in 2013 and explain to him about my immigration problem, he taught me to be patient and time will be the fruits of my patience. My son is now 7 years old and with the support of Mr dave and Mr danny this impossible dream has been possible. Mr danny has been very supportive thought the whole process of my application, he has been very positive and always lift me up when I had doubt about any other issues. Mr danny has been the gem of this wonderful journey. We'll now what can I say about Mr dave, he has been my mentor, a father figure,my angel guardian, he has guided me and advice me thought out my difficult phrase in life. I was living in fear, I let go opportunities in my work, but now all those fear has gone, I was feeling like a bird who live in a cage that flying was a desease. Now I look forward to application for my son british passport and I will continue to recommend other people who has difficulty in their immigration matter to seek help to Mr dave. As for me they are one of the best around and will aways be the best. They can make impossible dream come true. Thank u so much Mr dave and Mr danny.RegardRobin and family.

Dave and Henry have become my personal heroes of immigration appeal matters! Dave earned my trust from the first meeting as an honest, balanced and reliable person who can fix my broken case. Henry who has further dealt with my case is extremely knowledgeable, committed and just a warm person to work with throughout such a rocky and emotional matter. We have eventually won the case in the court due to their patient and intricate work. I have been blessed to work with both of the two gentlemen and wish Gulbenkian Andonian to continue this great mission in defending the real stories of the people brushed aside by the bureaucratic box-ticking exercise. Bonne chance!

I want to say a few words about Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors. I have gone through several immigration lawyers and law firms in England for different issues, but the most defining issue of my life was handed to Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors, and I can easily say, it was the best choice I made in my life and the most I am proud of.The team at Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors , starting from the receptionists to the solicitors to the partners , treated me like family with the utmost professionalism. They are the most intelligent, open minded, experienced and stubborn (in the best way possible) professionals I have seen. Always one-step ahead, planning for all eventualities and always optimistic which I felt was very helpful, last and definitely not least, they are realists, they will not promise you things not achievable. I write this because I witnessed this first hand, I saw how they dealt with my case, a case that no other law firm would look at and which many of my family members and friends had very little hope of achieving. They defied the odds and they got what I hoped and prayed to achieve. They stood by me in ways I never imagined, every single advice they gave me was spot on, every step they took was studied and calculated, they never kept me in the dark and they were always supportive.A special shout out to my heroes, Dave Vasoodaven and Hayk Sayadyan. they told me from day one, they were here to help and indeed they did. Hayk, fought this case like his life depended on it and i can not thank him enough, i will never forget when i got emails from him at 2am and 3am, this is dedication on another level. Dave managed the process very professionally and i am so proud and happy i took all the advice he gave me.Thank you so much for what you did for me. I can go on and on but I will end it here. Who ever has you on his side is blessed.Keep up the good and hard work,Thank you ☺

This is very exciting moment to give a excellent review where i have received the service and it will defiantly memorable for rest of my life.firstly, i do apologies to Dave and Jahed Murad, becoz its bit late to write this review as i was busy with my personal life and went back to my country.I received my visa under the 7 years uk born child family and private life Application. i receive the visa in first time application with in 8 months, becoz, my case worker fellow Mr. Jahed Morad prepare the whole application with cover letter under the law and rules regulations that home office honoured us leave to remain in Uk. Jahed was fantastic, friendly, very straight and truly honest speaker and hard worker regarding my application.Dave Vasoodaven, is the most kind person i saw in law industry so far in my life. firstly i met with him and i told my whole immigration history to him and he was sympathy-zed and showed his kindness and humanity to take my case and referred to Jahed Morad. Many thanks to everyone.

I strongly advice Gulbenikan Andonian as a company, and Mr. Henry & Mr. David individually. I have been struggling for three years with home office & with my previous law firm till I find Gulbenikan Andonian. From the first they I went to talk about my issue, they have assured me that the application they will make will be successful. They are very professional, they exactly know what they are saying and doing. Apart from their professional approach, every single person I contacted in their office are always warm and friendly. You can trust these people in your matters as much as you can trust yourselves. My only regret is not finding them at the beginning of my journey, but I can`t be enough thankful to them as they succeed in my application, and brought my family together. They always talk based on relevant law, and never play with the words for just taking your money. They deserve every single penny they ask for.

Thank you very much Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors.Me and my wife had a great experience with Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors team.I must admit that we had a very complicated and difficult immigration case which was turned down by many law firms. We were on the edge of leaving the U.K when we were referred to them. Our case was handled in a very highly professional manner and a successful outcome which couldn’t be achieved without the help of Mr Dave Vasoodaven, Ms Zara Shamal, Mr Henry Lau and not forgetting Mr Fadi Farhat. It was a long battle over the years which finally turned into a success.Mr Dave Vasoodaven is a very honest, professional person and has a great sense of humour. I still remembered the first appointment with Mr D. Vasoodaven. He guided and advised us all the way along and I would say he acted as a father to me.Thank you Ms Zara Shamal and Henry Lau for your dedication and hard work, advises and kept us updated on our case all the time. You were highly professional, passionate and patience with us. You went an extra mile to make our case successful.A big thank you for Mr Fadi Farhat. We were blessed to have you representing our case in the tribunal. Your dedication and passion on our case made us felt like pulling our sinking boat to the shore.I would also like to thank Caroline and Danny for their support and warm welcome every time we visited your office.I sincerely appreciate your team effort and will never hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.

While myself and my fiancé were searching for a good reliable solicitor to represent my ILR case, we came across Gulbenkian Andonian Law Firm in Google. We approached them and met Dave who was pleasant and hopeful at the first introduction itself. Thereafter, I was introduced to my solicitor Fadi who was just brilliant! Although I was a demanding and impatient client, Fadi handled my requirements and worked on my case productively and we won it! I also must mention Henry was very cooperative and helpful in assisting on my case. Overall I highly recommend them and I am very thankful I choose them for my ILR case. Thank you Fadi, Dave & Henry once again!

Our Ukrainian family had a hopeless immigration past.We applied first time with our previous solicitors to the Home Office 7 years ago and had been refused.We spent a lot of money and had lot of worries.By the recommendation of some friends,we came to Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors.Their advice to us was very good and they gave us the best solution.Jahed Morad was our lawyer and caseworker and he put same confidence in us.So,when we applied with Jahed after less than 6 months, we had a successful case and got residence permit cards.In our opinion,it is better to deal with professionals even if it cost bit more,then loose time and more money for someone unprofessional.Many Thank’s to Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors and to Jahed Morad.
