At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
Visit visas, which usually last for up to six months, generally involve fewer restrictions than long-term visas for the UK. But they're often just as important - particularly if you have family members or loved ones here.
Recent changes in the law mean it's more important than ever that you make the right application to visit the UK.
Our experienced immigration solicitors will give you clear advice on what you need to do to maximise your chances of successfully entering the UK or sponsoring someone to visit. If you have been refused a visa, we can identify your options and help you decide what to do next.
Benefits we bring
Morton Fraser's team of immigration lawyers adopts a practical, rounded approach when providing solutions to any immigration problems you may have, and we have a proven track record in helping people come to the UK. The team is Ranked Tier one in Legal 500 for 2018/19 and top ranked by Chambers and Partners.
Our approach to fees
Where possible we offer fixed fee packages for advising on your immigration options and assisting with an application. If it's not possible to offer a fixed fee then we'll provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.

We received an excellent service through your office with a clear explanation about our applications for indefinite leave to remain. Mr. McWilliams is highly recommended.
Mr. McWilliams and Mrs Bury were very helpful and answered promptly all my enquiries. I would definitely recommend them.
The clarity and quality of advice given was rated as excellent. Morton Fraser's service and response time was excellent and we would recommend them. We were kept informed throughout the visa process including all changes that occurred. I do not think we could have navigated the application process on our own. With guidance we were able to apply and I have recently received my approved visa. Esther and Stuart made us feel secure in our application process.
We would not hesitate to recommend Morton Fraser whom we have used for immigration and tax matters. Very professional, prompt and pleasant service. One feels well supported throughout right through to a positive outcome.
‘The immigration team at Morton Fraser inspires confidence that they are experts in their field. They explain what has to be done in a clear and concise manner, and they give very practical advice. There are often deadlines to be managed, and they respond very well to these.‘

The issue, on behalf of my Husband who is not able to communicate, was lengthy and somewhat complicated - Stuart McWilliams and his team provided consistent, excellent support to a highly satisfactory conclusion. Thank you
"What is especially impressive about this legal practice is their rapid response to queries and their effective resolution of seeming difficulties. They are innovative and able to suggest different approaches to both problem resolution and, if required, funding alternatives. They shine because of two words – they deliver."
