What should I look for in a good immigration lawyer in Truro?
There are several key areas which it is important to focus on if you are searching for immigration advice in Truro, Cornwall, or beyond.
First and foremost is experience. If an immigration lawyer has experience in cases like yours, they are far more likely to know how to deal with yours. They will know how to approach any hurdles you may be facing, by drawing upon their past experience with previous clients. Our IAS lawyers have decades of experience under their belt, and many have been practicing immigration law for their entire lives, which means they know how to approach any kind of application, no matter how complex it is, and ensure as smooth and easy a process as possible. What’s more, many of our lawyers have specialisms in certain areas, making them some of the most experienced people in the country in those specific areas. For example, some of our lawyers are especially experienced in types of Family Visa applications — like Adult Dependent Visas or Family Visit Visas. Others are especially well-versed in business immigration, and help businesses recruit overseas workers in large scales, as well as apply for Sponsorship Licences.
The second key area is accreditation; which in some ways is just as important as experience, as an immigration lawyer without the proper accreditation or qualifications is not legally allowed to offer immigration advice. All of IAS’ immigration solicitors in Truro and the UK are OISC-accredited, to either Level 1, 2, or 3. When looking for a good immigration lawyer in Truro it is vital that you find out if they are properly accredited before acquiring their services.
The third and final key factor to consider when choosing out of Cornwall-based immigration lawyers is care. It makes a real difference if your lawyer cares about your plight and feelings when dealing with you. While all our lawyers at IAS are very professional, they are also very passionate about their work. Our asylum-lawyers in particular, who provide Legal Aid services care about their clients and work harder to resolve their case and get a positive result for them as a result.
