  • “If I could give Chris more than 5 stars I would. My complex immigration issue has been compounded by terrible legal advice, but he went above and beyond to help me find a way forward and I’m truly grateful! I can honestly say that Seraphus is a genuine, and competent firm who will stand with you on your immigration issue- I strongly recommend them!”

I strongly recommend Seraphus Solicitors to anyone seeking legal assistance with immigration issues.”


  • “Super helpful, Chris was really professional and answered all my questions. You can see he knows what he is talking about. Also, I thought that 30min would not be enough, but it was more than enough. I let him know I had forgotten one question, and he kindly called me to answer that question!”

The service provided by Chris was convenient, informative and friendly, helping my wife and I to clearly understand what next steps to take. We would not hesitate to recommend, the half hour spent provided a great deal of reassurance!”
