"My lawyer, Averil Trimble, was very professional but also very caring. I felt that I was worth more than a money sign and she was really going to try and help me." "I found the whole spouse visa process very difficult and I am not sure I would have gotten my visa without my lawyer's help. I am infinitely grateful to my lawyer for making it easier for me. It made all the difference."
“Averil Trimble was empathetic to our situation and her feedback will be helpful. I would be happy to make use of Morton Fraser's services in the future."
“Morton Fraser’s practice is ‘prestigious and highly respected’; ‘response times, industry knowledge and strength in-depth are all excellent’. Leading experts in business immigration matters, the team assisted Scottish Enterprise with business visas and immigration support for those wishing to move to Scotland."
Somewhat daunted by the complexity of my two sons' passport application process, I turned to Morton Fraser for help. I would like to thank Averil Trimble and her team for their guidance, reassurance and diligence. A truly professional service. Many thanks.
“I was recommended Morton Fraser in 2016 by my cousin who is a lawyer and the provided excellent service so had no hesitation in using their services again. I have also recommended to a family member who again received an excellent service."
