Thanks to Irfan Ali for guiding us through the complex UK spouse visa application process, which was successful on the first try and my wife is now in the UK with her Biometric Residence Permit despite being from a... difficult (African) country. It might not have been possible to succeed without Irfan's expert guidance, so it was money well spent. No hesitation in using the David Gray firm and Irfan Ali again to secure permanent UK residence after 5 years on spouse visa. Other immigration agents may be cheaper, but it's getting the desired end result without hitches that matters. For professionalism and complete up-to-date knowledge, you have to pay what it takes when your family's future depends on it.read more

My medation appointment at David Gray was very helpful Mary is a lovely lady very welcoming and lovely to chat to. Coming from an offshore back ground I was very sceptical about my appointment thinking this is a waist... of time. However upon leaving I felt having someone who was not involved in the situation to talk to helped me massively to put things to bed. Thank you for you help Mary.read more

The Team at David Gray are superb. They, led by Irfan Ali, were extremely knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful in dealing with our request for a settlement visa for the UK. We had a fairly unique set of... circumstances which they fully understood and were able to advise us accordingly to the extent that the submission was made once, no return questions from the authorities, and visa approved without any problem. Thank youread more
