  • Meresbrooke Pollard Solicitors are one of the best firms I have had experience with. Zahida and Shazia helped me with my spouse visa with a high level of professionalism and guided me through the whole process. They were always available to answer my queries and concerns. I couldn't thank them enough for all the help and support they provided which lead to a successful spouse visa within 8 weeks. Thank you for everything I really cant express how thankful I am to you for helping me through this process. I would recommend their service to anyone who is looking for a first time successful application for a visa and I will be definitely returning in the future to use their services again. Thank You
