Experience

Daniaal has extensive experience in handing complex family-based applications for entry clearance, leave to remain, settlement & naturalisation.

Daniaal’s background immigration commenced in personal and family immigration. This includes contentious and non-contentious immigration matters.

Thorough and attention to detail:

  • Representing a client in submitting a naturalisation application, to satisfy the good character requirement after a series of offences. Daniaal assisted the client with highlighting the positive strides the client made in his life to contribute to the UK with charitable work.

    Daniaal’s attention to detail enabled him to prepare representations and references to the Home Office guidance resulting in the client’s application to be naturalised granted.

  • Clear advice – providing advice to employers and employees relating to processes and immigration requirements to ensure compliance and prevent immigration history being adversely impacted.

Empathetic and approachable:

  • Daniaal’s background involved working on matters ranging from dealing with personal and family matters. This includes assisting vulnerable individuals such as asylum seekers, and victims of domestic violence. He therefore takes great pride in dealing with clients with empathy and approachability.

 

"We were assisted by Daniaal Afzaal. We found him to be very professional, friendly, patient, courteous and helpful, with good knowledge of the law and procedures."
