Testimonials and Success stories

Our clients are often kind enough to share some feedback on our services on completion of work carried out on their behalf. Here are a few appreciated remarks from our clients.

“My case was very complicated after my previous legal representatives had used the wrong application form which resulted in me overstaying my visa. I had sought advice from Sarwar Khan of Novells Legal Practice and was very much impressed by Sarwar’s ability to understand my case straight away and find the best possible solution. He assisted me with an urgent application and prepared outstanding representations in support of my application. As a result my application was granted within a few months. I would like to personally thank Novells Legal Practice”.   


“My mother’s entry clearance visa as a dependant relative was refused by the British High Commission overseas. I made appointments with a few immigration consultants, some were not even able to understand the refusal decision. I had to spend some money to choose the right choice. I was referred to Novells Legal Practice. During the first meeting, the adviser was able to identify the main issues and apply the law to assess whether there were grounds to appeal. I instructed Novells Legal Practice to lodge an appeal to the Court, Following a review of the appeal by the decision maker, the original decision was overturned. I did not have to attend Court which meant that I saved time and hundreds of pounds. My mother has now joined me in the UK. Though the case was quite complicated but thanks to Novells Legal Practice they spent time to search within the law to find answer and solution to my problem”.


“I was very pleased with the professional and personal approach of Novells Legal Practice. All of the staff were great and kept me well informed of updates. I would like to take the opportunity to pass a personal thank you to you for your guidance, support and assistance during a difficult time. The Barrister at my appeal was well prepared for the case and representation in court was significant in persuading the Immigration Judge to allow the appeal. There was no question of losing the appeal”.


“Following an Immigration raid some of our staff were arrested for immigration offences. 2 weeks later we received a civil penalty of £20,000 for employing illegal workers. It was impossible for us to pay such an amount and feared that the business would go bankrupt. We instructed Novells Legal Practice who provided very clear information on Home Office law and guidance and responded very promptly to this urgent matter. Novells Legal Practice challenged the civil penalty and the UKBA made a decision to substantially reduce down the amount. They were also able to agree an instalment plan which worked in our favour. We are extremely happy with the work that Novells Legal Practice has done. True to their word from the outset and saved our business and the livelihoods of the people working at the business”.

“A friend who made a successful application with Novells Legal Practice recommended them to me for my own case. I did not hear of them from before so went for an initial advice appointment. The adviser was very knowledgeable of the application process and the home office documentation expectations and most importantly for me their professional fee was very reasonable. I became a client of Novells Legal Practice who gave me all professional help any client ever aspires. I got my indefinite leave to remain without problems. I am really grateful for their efficient help and professional support. I would now recommend them highly to anyone”.

“I met my partner in the UK through work and started a relationship. We had a child together. My partner was arrested and detained as an overstayer. He was detained and given a date to be removed from the UK. I approached Novells Legal Practice who made a human rights application on behalf of my partner based on our relationship and child and cancelled the removal directions. They later applied for my partner to be released on bail which was successful. My partner and I are very grateful for the urgent services given by the caseworker in dealing with my partner’s immigration matter. We are now able to live as a family here in the UK and we look forward to a new future. Mr partner will soon be working and provide financial support. I no longer fear one day my child would lose her father or have to be away from him if he was removed”.
