26 | Q3 2022 Jun22460 Most Trusted Immigration and Asylum Law Firm 2022 – London Based in the heart of London, J Stifford Solicitors (J Stifford) is a private client law firm set up by a group of young solicitors and barristers to provide legal advice and representation to tribunals and higher courts. Not only does the firm work to protect the public, but also to provide a transparent, more effective and responsive legal advisory service. Principal Solicitor, Chowdhury Ali, guides the team diligently, and tells us, “We take huge pride in providing unparalleled support for our happy clients in all areas of their business and private life. “We understand that every individual has his or her own particular needs, convenience and budget, which is why our services are always customised and focussed towards you. We take pride in being a boutique law firm, where we actively listen and ask for your views, to ensure that we are able to provide a service that is tailor made for you.” The firm consists of lawyers with more than 50 years of combined experience, and caseworkers who are experts in their respective fields. It has a rich heritage of knowledge, experience, and service. Through its core group of dedicated solicitors and barristers it has developed a tenet of reliability for its clients. Over the years, J Stifford has built up strong relationships with many leading barristers, agents, surveyors, and other professionals, and it is able to work in conjunction with them for matters that are particularly complex or that require the service of other professionals. “Our services are affordable and competitive,” elaborates Chowdhury. “Fees are always explained and agreed in advance so that you can have peace of mind while your matter progresses.” Integrity and fairness form the ethos which underpins the firm, and striving to excel in all work undertaken is commonplace amongst the dedicated team. In fact, Chowdhury states that the caseworkers are often commended by clients for their empathy and clarity in communication, keeping clients updated and informed on the progress of the matter, and providing clear, cogent, jargon-free advice to help clients make the best decision. “Our immigration and asylum lawyers have extensive experience and knowledge in dealing with immigration related claims from adults and minors alike; claims from those who continue to remain in the United Kingdom and have previously been refused asylum but would like to submit a new, fresh claim because they have new evidence; claims dealing with older and unresolved asylum applications; preparing and lodging applications for settlement following the grant of asylum or humanitarian protection. “We offer honest advice and a thorough review of your case to provide you with the very best. Not only do most of our clients come to us from personal recommendations and referrals, but we have also grown to become the first port of call for many of our clients, who return to us again and again.” Recently, the firm was recognised in the 2022 SME Business Elite Awards and crowned with the respected title of Most Trusted Immigration and Asylum Law Firm 2022 in London.
