As a law firm, we are dedicated to ensuring people can access justice.  Therefore, we advise and represent immigration law clients who require legal aid.

The UK Government’s ‘hostile environment’ immigration policy results in many Settlement and asylum applications being refused.  Wrongful and/or illegal detentions and deportations are also common.  We provide fast, compassionate, accurate legal advice and representation and are highly experienced in successfully challenging Home Office decisions.  Our immigration Solicitors do not give up and will tenaciously fight for you and your family’s immigration and human rights.

Our immigration law team headed by Rupinder Kaur Matharu who has a formidable reputation for preventing deportations, acquiring asylum when it has been previously refused, and dealing with complex matters such as human rights appeals.  We hold a Law Society Accreditation in Immigration and Asylum Law, meaning our Solicitors meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service in immigration law.

“MTG is an outstanding firm. Everyone from the front desk receptionist to the two solicitors with whom I dealt was professional, polite, and prompt. Earld and Rupinder are awesome! They showed compassion and made sure every detail was in order for us. I recommended MTG to a friend who said the same thing: a top quality & caring firm that actually seems to care about its clients. Highly recommend.”

Applying for legal aid

We will quickly tell you if you qualify for legal aid support.  Rupinder and her multi-lingual team will assist you with filling in the required forms and collating the evidence to support your claim.

How we can help you

Rupinder and her team can advise and represent you on matters concerning:

ILR and British Citizenship

For many migrants, obtaining Settlement and British Citizenship are the final steps in making Britain their new home.  We can answer all the questions you have about the process, assist you with making applications, and fight in your corner if your application is refused.

Appeals and Judicial Review

Appealing or applying for Judicial Review of UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) decisions can be a frustrating and stressful experience.  Our immigration law team care deeply about every client and will put together a strong, competent appeal/Judicial Review application on your behalf.

Asylum applications

We can assist with all aspects of applying for asylum.  You can be confident that we will advise and represent you with compassion and always be responsive to your questions. 

Domestic violence

If you are in the UK on a Spouse Visa and are a domestic violence victim, you may be able to apply for immediate Indefinite Leave to Remain.  Rupinder and her team can advise you on this and also help you secure an injunction against your abuser, such as a Non-Molestation Order and/or Occupation Order.

Modern Slavery/Human Trafficking

Victims of modern slavery and human trafficking who are in the UK on a Domestic Visa in a Private Household may stay in the country for up to two years if certain conditions apply.  We can advise on all protections available if you are a victim of slavery, acting quickly to ensure your safety and wellbeing.

Deportation and Removals

If you have been unlawfully detained, our immigration lawyers will not only fight determinedly to end your detention but also advise and represent you in a compensation claim.  We can also provide swift, expert advice and representation if you are facing being removed from the UK.

Providing you with confidence

Many of our immigration law clients are referred to us by people we have helped in the past.  Some have spent months or even years fighting the Home Office for the right to remain in the UK through Indefinite Leave to Remain or asylum.  Others have had their spouse or student visa refused, jeopardising their entire future.

Rupinder and her team understand how frustrating and stressful dealing with the Home Office can be.  They will take the matter off your shoulders and fight robustly on your side to achieve a successful result.  You can be confident that they not only have an in-depth knowledge of immigration law but also understand the motivation behind many Home Office decisions.  This makes our immigration lawyers formidable opponents in First Tier Tribunal appeals and Administrative Review and Judicial Review applications.
