Excellent immigration attorney
Matthew and Sharon were an excellent support getting me very quickly and successfully through the visa application process for an intra-company transfer. They kept me informed and up to date of everything I needed to know/ expect and managed to get everything sorted within a very short timeframe. I would recommend Matthew to anyone who is looking for some excellent hand holding through this difficult and sometimes daunting process, a pleasure to deal with and a first-class service received.
