Ism Ahmed is very dedicated to giving full, clear and necessary information should you seek for. I reached him for a few pieces of advice on my case, and end up having a full understanding of what options are there and which route is best. And he did not charge for any minutes of it with this kind of information and assessment. I highly recommend Ish Ahmed and his firm if you would want a reliable solicitor to handle the case.

When my wife engaged the services of Ish at Bankfield Health some 2-3 years ago. We were trying to navigate what felt like a labyrinth of immigration matters. Ish and the team were great - calmly, confidently and professionally handling everything and certainly making us feel like we were in safe hands. And it turns out we were. With some changes in our circumstances we returned to Ish for support recently and nothing has changed. Reliable, responsive and invaluable advice on which we can trust. Thanks all.

Spoke to Ish and he provided honest advice. He couldn't help me with my parents visa but no fault of his own. It was more to do with the rules. He just didn't want my money otherwise he would have applied for the visa to get his fee. Very well done Ish. Will be in touch if the rules changes.

Ish was amazing and so very helpful. He was really patient was me and reassured my husband and I throughout the application process. Even though there were some administrative issues at the start, Ish was quick to solve it and oversee the process himself. My husband and I are very very thankful for all his help. Without him, we wouldn't have successfully attained my spousal visa. Thanks again Ish! We truly appreciate it!

Ish and assistant Zoe helped me switch visa categories this year. They provided a detailed consultation before I officially engaged their services, with a confident assessment of the potential (positive) outcome of my case - whereas other solicitors had comparatively negative feedback. Throughout, they were very professional and courteous, promptly answered any questions I had and made the process of gathering the necessary documentation very efficient and stress-free. Where there were potential gaps in my application materials, they were able to suggest alternative ways to fulfill the requirements. My application was successful and I am very pleased with my new visa, and how simple Ish and his team made this difficult process. I would definitely recommend Bankfield Heath if you are searching for an immigration solicitor.

I would recommend Ish without hesitation. Having spoken to a number of other Immigration Lawyers he immediately impressed us with him obvious knowledge of the subject area, the process and gave us clear transparent advice around our chances of success and set our expectations accordingly. The positive outcome, speed and attention to detail was very impressive.I have dealt with many lawyers throughout my corporate career and Ish stands out as truly exceptional at his job. If you are looking to maximize your chances of successfully navigating the treacherous waters around immigration law, Ish comes highly recommended!

One of the best immigration lawyers in Sheffield, Leeds and Bradford in the UK based on my personal experience. Bankfield Heath Solicitors offered me initial free consultation with the Solicitor Steve Foley on one to one basis on the phone for 30 minutes. Thanks to Hollie Auty and Natassia Watson of Bankfield Heath Solicitors for providing me with direct access to the solicitor. They are warm, approachable and professional. Steve explained to me the process of my immigration matters honestly. Steve is professional, expert and provided me with quality advice and services.

Excellent service from start to finish. Steve Foley and his team are wonderful! They provided high quality care and exceptionally clear guidance throughout our whole case. Their attention to detail also saved us a lot of money with translation costs as they worked through five years of paperwork, carefully selecting the most valuable pieces of evidence for our case. Our case was successful and we strongly recommend Bankfield Heath!

Ish and his team have recently helped us make a successful appeal. He was very sharp in analysing the case and very clear in executing the procedure. Through his expertise, we were able to accurately express our claims with legal arguments. He explained each stage sufficiently and prepared us with the right expectations for the outcomes of each action. He was confident with his professional knowledge while remained humble and open-minded during communications. He also found us an excellent barrister, Mr Hussian, who performed a very persuasive defence for us during the hearing.We were impressed by Ish’s kind manner and that the whole experience was very client-oriented. In comparison to some law firm who would like to charge us simply for the initial inquiry, Ish seemed to have spent time looking up the case even before the first call. Questions were always welcomed and the whole team was responsive. The faith Ish had for our legal rights and the effort he put in fighting for them, was a big support during this tough time.We highly recommend Ish and his team Bankfield Heath Solicitors for their competence and compassion.
