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.
Brilliant and Brilliant and Brilliant.What a pleasure we got to work with this extremely professional firm. Our case was very complicated of article 8. They are well experienced in immigration courts from my own experience.Zara shamal was incredibly helpful and she has a very structured approach to preparing the appeal bundle. She really is such a asset to this law firm.Henry expertise on human rights and appeal was outstanding and fantastically intelligent.Without any hesitation, I will definitely recommend Gulbenkian ANDONIAN.
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.
Excellent service provided by Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors. In particularly I want to mention Fadi Farhat who has continued to assist me and my family successfully over the years. He is extremely efficient and keeps to his promise. He confidently assures you even when the odds are against you; and in all instances the result is always positive. Highly recommend.
Highly recommend to avoid this firm they will rip off your pockets and you only realise when the damage is done. They gave me false hopes regarding my judicial review matter, took £4,000 from me, only to have the case refused. Giving false hope to any client is not the standard a firm should operate on, however small. In spite of this, they will even charge you for the phone calls they make to you, told by Mr... And if that was not enough, an extra £500 was demanded in spite of the £3,500 agreed fee during our first meeting. At the time, I had no choice but to pay. In the end, I sought advice from another firm that provided a professional service with honesty and integrity. Will I use Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors again? Yes, if I have spare cash to throw away.
Have used these Solicitors and cannot recommend them enough, I was completely satisfied and had a successful outcome which could not have been achieved without the help of Dr Bernard Andonian,Mr Fadi Farhat, Ms Zara Shamal, Mr Henry Lau, and Ms Caroline Gardner, it had been a very trying time for me and my partner but They kept reassuring us and dealt with our impatient professionally, A Big Thank you to you all and would not hesitate in recommending A No 1 Solicitors, First Class.

I had a very complex case and had been turned down by a few firms as my case was termed a "waste of time" as i had had just too many refusals plus a deportation letter under my belt until I was introduced to this firm.They are true professionals, respectful, dedicated and very thorough with you so you know where you stand with your case and with that I have been granted the leave to remain after a "looooooooooong" heart breaking battle with the State.Give them a try as no case is too big, too small or too useless for them.They have an AMAZING TEAM.Thanks EVERYONE.
I have had the best experience with this firm. They are all very professional, helpful and know what they are doing. I would like to thank Bernard, Henry, Hojabr and specially Jahed who has recently been working on my application. They have all been very helpful and thorough in their approach. I would also like to thank Caroline and Danny for always being so cheerful and welcoming every time I have visited the office. Well done to the whole team, would highly recommend them.
