We can’t thank Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors enough especially Henry for getting a positive result of a complex immigration matter. Always there to answer any queries we had. And always kept in touch with us throughout to update us on the progress of the application. This is my first testimonial I’ve written. And I really can’t rate this firm highly enough and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future.

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.

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.

I’ve known the firm for 10 years now. I can’t even explain how incredible they have been since day one!The staff have always made sure that they give me comprehensive explanation with regards to my cases.Not only they assure outstanding immigration advice and services, they were also emotional uplifts.I truly consider them as my family and of course Mr. Dave vasoodaven as being the father of the family.My case was prepared by Hayk and Fadi and they made sure that every single detail was addressed to the fullest depth.At my hearing day, Fadi presented my case with such astonishing manner in which case the judge thanked him in the end for his greatness.I was honoured to be introduced to Caroline as she has inspired me a lot in terms of maintaining patience specially throughout difficult times that sometime I tend to neglect it (patience is a virtue).Zara and Caroline are definitely superwomen and I look up to them a lot.I definitely recommend the team work at the firm!

Good Day,My story that led me to gulbenkian solicitors started 6 years ago. i sent in my british passport for renewal and it was siezed by the passport office as well as my application rejected. I visited and engaged 3 different law firms that did work that was quite subpar .Eventually i came to Gulbenkian , I met Dave Vasoodaven who i must say is an amazing person. The initial meeting was so different from the ones i had with previous firms by a country mile and immediately i was on board.I have to give a huge special thanks to Hayk Sayadan who took the reigns eventually and to describe Hayk, I will say , no Ego, very high IQ's , patient, persistent and a master at his craft.With Dave also being extremely knowledgeable and with a huge amount of experience and wisdon , very intelligent and as sharp as can be .I honestly felt as if i had a lawyer and a therapist at the same time in each of them , seeing as this ordeal could have come along with a lot of depression for me. I avoided this by talking with them both while we fought tooth and nail on my case.Well my renewed Passport arrived a week ago and we are moving on to indemnity claims for the inconvenience .I learnt so much from my time with them and i want to thank the whole firm for their efforts.Also a big thank you to Caroline the receptionist for her curtesy.i would highly recommend them without blinking to anyone going through legal issues.They are great!!Mr B.

The Mendez Family Case . This testimony is a family one, we were looking for a lawyer to trust with our case we had been 7 years in this country and we wanted the opportunity to get a residence permit. We thought our case would be hard and long but we are glad to say our choice of lawyers to help our case was the best decision we made as a family. They helped us throw hard times, my daughter's college applications for her to study to other personal things. They made sure we were well looked after and always happy to help. After 10 months against the Home Office, we as a family will never forget the day we got the news from Mr Fadi Farhat and Ms Zara Shamal that we had won, thinking we were going in to talk to our lawyer about our hearing turns out there would be no need for a hearing, after their hard work and dedication to our case they were able to make this happen in just 10 months. We thank the whole firm for helping my family obtain this gift, and we highly recommend for any legal advice and help. We would also like to thank Mr Fadi Farhat for his patience in every appointment with us as it was easier and much more comfortable and made us feel at ease with him being able to speak Spanish for his patience in every appointment with us as it was easier and much more comfortable and made us feel at ease with him being able to speak Spanish

Had a permission hearing at the upper tribunal today, I want to sincerely thank the professionalism, confidence, knowledge & support of Fadi Farhat, Henry Lau and Dave Vasoodaven. Immigration is not an easy field and would certainly only trust a team of truly professional experts with a years of experience as well as exceptional standing. Looking forward to a positive outcome! If you want a law firm you can fully trust, then I highly recommend Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors in London.

A big thank you to the team at Gulbenkian Andonian for all the assistance and guidance the past year - especially to Jahed, Dave and Caroline for taking all my stressful calls and emails, to Jahed again for the amazing work in building my case + dealing with my awful temper at times (really, really sorry), Fadi and the intern for supporting me throughout my case, and Henry for taking the extra time after work to run through my case with me which turned out to be the most important 2 hours of my life. It was an arduous journey attaining my BRP and I'm so fortunate to have been able to work with such a great team like this. Definitely recommend to anyone facing immigration issues.

I was introduced to Gulbenkian Andonian in 2014 by a friend. I have never regretted a bit for the relationship that has ensued and the first class service I and my family have received. To me, they are the best immigration lawyers in the UK. Thumps up to Dave Vasoodaven and world class Barrister, Fadi Farhart. To all the staff especially, Zara and Caroline who we used to worry with our numerous calls, may Almighty God bless you all. I will recommend Gulbenkian Andonian to anyone who is stuck and requires immigration assistance. They have the heart for people, serious and professional in their line of business. Do not hesitate, you will get your moneys worth.

I am 28 yrs old businessman from Pakistan, due to my negligence, I made some genuine mistakes 4 years ago in filling the form for the UK visit visa application from Pakistan for myself & my little sister and was subsequently put on automatic refusals for a period of upto 10 years by the Home Office which greatly affected my professional & personal life aswell as of my sister’s as we were barred from traveling to the UK and other European countries. However after consulting with Dave Vasoodaven of Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors, he helped me and managed to lift my 10 years automatic refusals and is also now helping lift the same for my sister and straighten her immigration record with the Home Office. He has also promised to help us in getting the visa’s. Dave is one gem of a person and a complete expert in his field. If you have a genuine case and you are facing problems getting through with the Home Office, immediately consult Dave Vasoodaven of Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors.

I used Gulbenkian Andonian solicitors over the period of 2016 to guide me with an indefinite leave to remain application for a friend with a 1 year old daughter.I was drawn to engaging the services of Dr Bernard Andonian because of his significant expertise as a part-time judge, and because of his participation in roundtable discussions with some of the best human rights and immigration lawyers in the country.During our initial consultation, Dr Andonian explained the application process very clearly to me after hearing the details of our case. Most importantly, he was candid about which stages of the entire application process bore the most uncertainty and risk of a negative outcome.Over the time we engaged his services, he gave much invaluable advice on how best to present our case favourably to the Case Officer overseeing the application. In terms of client care, he was careful to assuage any irrational fears and concerns which we had, and there were many, now we have the privilege of hindsight. It didn’t feel like we were merely receiving a paid-for service, but that we had the support of an ally – the mark of a true professional, in my opinion.There are many practising immigration solicitors in the field, some of whom use business models that pay a greater degree of attention to securing positive outcomes for clients than others. I remain firm in my conviction that had I not been as lucky to engage the services of Dr Andonian on behalf of my friend, there could easily have been an additional one year old girl in the world who would have been deprived of the right to live a life with her father.I unreservedly recommend this firm to anyone who is need of professional immigration advice.
