How to find the right asylum solicitors in the UK

1. Do your research

Many different asylum solicitors are practising in the UK, so it is important to do your research before choosing one to represent you. Start by asking for recommendations from friends or family members who have used an asylum solicitor in the past. You can also search online for solicitors who specialise in representing asylum seekers. Once you have a list of potential solicitors, take the time to read reviews and compare prices.

2. Schedule a consultation

After you have narrowed down and  created a list of potential solicitors, schedule a consultation with each one. This is your chance to ask questions and get to know the solicitor before making a decision. During the consultation process, be sure to ask about the solicitor’s experience with cases similar to yours, their success rate, and also how they will communicate with you throughout the process.

3. Make sure you feel comfortable

It is important that you feel comfortable with your asylum solicitor. This person will be representing you in a very sensitive and personal matter, so you must trust them. Be sure to ask about the solicitor’s confidentiality policy and make sure you understand everything before moving forward.

4. Get everything in writing

Before you make your final decision, be sure to get everything in writing. This includes the solicitor’s fee agreement and a detailed outline of their services. This will help protect you in case there are any misunderstandings down the road. Also, be sure to keep all of your correspondence with the solicitor, as this may be helpful if you need to file a complaint in the future.

How much will asylum solicitors charge?

Asylum solicitors typically charge £1,750 to £3,500 + VAT for their services. However, some solicitors may be willing to work on a pro bono basis if they believe your case has merit. The fee can vary depending on the circumstances of your case. Also, remember that you may be eligible for legal aid if you cannot afford to pay for a solicitor.

What should I expect from my asylum solicitor?

Your asylum solicitor should be experienced in dealing with cases like yours and be up-to-date on the latest UK asylum law. They should also be able to explain the process to you in a way that you can understand. Most importantly, your solicitor should make you feel comfortable and be someone you can trust.
