ILR Application

5

I cannot put into words ho grateful I am to have found out about Mark. Ever since I changed my Lawyer and have been using Mark I've had such a smooth process with home office applications. Mark has worked on my previous application which was granted and my most current ILR application now which has also come back as granted. Mark is well measured, he will give you a very comprehensive view of your case and also his perspective on the strength of your case/application based on the merits as it pertains to the law unlike some other lawyers who I have worked with and will really only sell you dreams of an outcome even though your application may not be strong enough. Mark is precise, professional and also pays great attention to detail. If I could ask Mark to be my lawyer for every and anything I could need a lawyer for, I would! Brilliant is an understatement. Thank you so much Mark. I really appreciate all your help and cannot thank you enough!

Both Mark and Lydia were absolutely phenomenal, guided us through all the steps necessary to maximise our chances of success despite all odds and pulled a lot of the necessary work, all whilst being constantly communicative, keeping us up to date on further steps and being fully transparent about every aspect of their service. Our visa application was successful and we're now making preparations! I can absolutely recommend OTB Solicitors to anyone who may need it.

Mark, who assisted me with my queries, giving me very detailed information, in an open and honest opinion. He was so polite, patient and respectful all throughout the free consultation that actually took for a while.
I really appreciate it and, off course, I will come back to him for further advices. I highly recommend OTB Legal to anyone looking for immigration support.

This is a letter of genuine thanks to Mark who assisted me in a desperate situation where I had been given 10 days to leave the UK.

Mark immediately set to work and identified the problem in my failed Set (M) settlement Visa application. His knowledge of the application was so in depth that in 2 hours he had redone my application, corrected the mistake, and sent off my application.

1 week later I recieved my answer from home Office and my application was a success. I furthermore informed mark that I wanted to lodge a complaint against Home Office and Mark advised me on mistakes that Home Office may have made in the structure of the application and the complaint procedures that my complaint should follow to have the best chance at winning my complaint and possibly a refund.

Due to Mark's dilligence and personal attention he gave my application I have since recommended my stepson to Mark and he will be processing my stepsons wife in her application for a spousal Visa to the UK.

And he has the fastest fingers on a keyboard in the west.

Thanks once again to Mark and the team. Much appreciated.

Thank you, Mark Lilley-Tams.

I have known him for a good number of years or more from his time at Paragon Law to OTB Legal, where he is presently helping hundreds of other clients.

Mark has been handling all my cases. Just a few days ago my daughter was granted Indefinite Leave to Remain, under the guidance of this fine solicitor.

I will stay in touch. I m happy to recommend you and your team to anyone.
