Specialist immigration advice is in very short supply in Derbyshire and so we have always maintained a service for this important area of law. Our focus is particularly on helping to keep families together.
We offer a free telephone specialist advice service to residents of Derbyshire (excluding Derby City). We also offer a fixed fee casework service for the types of applications listed below. Our current charges are listed on our charges page on this website. We also strive to secure funding for specific projects aimed at particular issues, or helping particular communities or individuals with Human Rights based cases. At present we are focusing our resources on supporting EU nationals and their family members secure EU Settlement Scheme Status. This project is funded by the Home Office until March 2022 and covers both Derbyshire and Derby City.
Our immigration team consists of 2 experienced solicitors. We are registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and authorised to provide immigration advice and services at Level 3 in the categories of Asylum & Protection and Immigration. Our registration number is F202000135.

What to do Next
We can advise on the telephone. We do not initially advise by e-mail only or initial face to face appointment, except for accessibility reasons. It is best if you telephone us to speak to one of our advisers first, so that we can assess the level of help needed and direct your enquiry accordingly. Depending on the level of advice assessed as needed, we may then email our advice or see you for a face to face appointment.
