Lesley Kemp is brilliant! She guided us through the Permanent Residency and British Citizenship applications for myself and Settled Status for my partner. She is a compassionate person, considerate, helpful, effective, experienced, proficient, very knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Lesley. She guided my family and I through a UK residency case in a swift and precise manner.

Lesley is a professional and very personal at the same time… pushes when needed and holds your hand/pen when needed.
