    Gurpreet is a great lawyer who knows his job very well and is very informative about the Home office applications and procedures. I contacted him regarding my Nationality application. Not only he helped me understand the whole procedure, but he also clarified an issue that I thought would delay my application. I have now been granted naturalisation by the Home office and I really appreciate all of his efforts and would recommend him to everyone who wants good advice.
