What Our Clients Say 


I went to see Barrister Mohammed Monwar Hossain in relation to my immigration appeal matter. His services, attitude, honesty, behaviours and representation were excellent. I am grateful for his help. My problems have been sorted out by him. 


My two relatives have been in the UK for the last 12 years. He got their flight cancelled twice and bail granted three times. He helped them for Judicial Review and the Home Office has agreed to reconsider the decision. Barrister Monwar is really great!


Mr Hossain is such a barrister who does not care about big fees but desperately helps people who faces immigration problems. I work as environmental officer in UK. I have no hesitation to say that if anybody has been failed and no where else to go.
