Manuel se ha destacado en un número importante de casos que incluyen:
“We are very grateful with the support provided by Laura and Manuel. A few years ago they helped us to regularise our immigration status and recently to extend our visas. My eldest daughter is now going to University because she managed to obtain a student loan as she is regular in this country. We will never forget what Laura and Manuel did for us and will keep using their service.”
“When I came to see Manuel I thought I did not have any chances to stay in this country legally. I have just had a baby and the father of my son was unwilling to get him a British passport. Manuel helped me to obtain confirmation from the Home Office that my son was British, then his British passport and later I managed to regularise my immigration status though my British son. I owe Manuel so much and will always be grateful for what he did for us”
“I highly recommend Manuel, he helped to do my application, he is very professional, helpful and responsive to all my concerns. The process was successful. He also helped my mum and my sister to do their applications, always provided excellent service and excellent knowledge.”
“Before coming to see Manuel I though that my case was lost. My EU husband had left me and I did not know his whereabouts. My visa was already expired. Manuel’s strategy worked and now I am British, my daughter later acquired British citizenship and my new partner regularised his immigration status as my dependant. Manuel’s knowledge of the law, practical way of thinking and perseverance is what get us to that result.”
“I like Manuel a lot. The work that he does through the charity is admirable. He has helped many Latin Americans in the UK throughout the years. He is passionate about his work, perseverant and always looks for what is best for his clients. He is honest and straight forward.”
