    • Testimonials

      “I am grateful to your solicitors [Douglass Simon] for their carefully constructed bundle of documents, their focused and limited grounds, and their cogent argument. These features are, sadly, rare in the cases I see.”

      “…it is arguable that the Judge’s reasoning is flawed for the reasons set out in the grounds [prepared by Douglass Simon Solicitors]

      “…the decision is subjected to detailed analysis…”

      “As this arguable error of law has been identified [by the appellant’s representative] all the issues raised in the grounds are arguable.”

      “As [the] grounds make clear…”

      “In light of the detailed submissions in the skeleton argument upon which I indicated that my preliminary view was favourable…”

      “The notice of appeal was accompanied by detailed submissions by the Appellant’s solicitors which I have read…
      I agree with [their] analysis…”

      “The claim [presented by the claimant’s solicitors]…is arguable…based on errors of law and/or reasoning.”

      “The grounds [submitted by Douglass Simon Solicitors] complain, arguably rightly, that the respondent’s decision to refuse the application and her daughter leave to remain has not been considered properly.”

      “…a series of energetic submissions made…”

      “In well crafted grounds of appeal prepared by the appellant’s solicitors [Douglass Simon]….the representatives were alert to the substitution of that paragraph by HC439”

      “The…evidence [provided by the appellant’s representative] is most comprehensive….it is carefully set out…”

      In dismissing an appeal by the Secretary of State in the Upper Tribunal “….as clear as day that these grounds [by the Secretary of State] are misconceived and should not have been submitted”

      “The Appellant’s solicitors have set out at some length and with great force the arguments and the law….I agree with [them]…”

      “There is…a detailed review of the law…in some considerable detail…”

      “The appellant’s solicitors have submitted Grounds of Appeal. It is very detailed…the relevant parts are indeed very illuminating.”

      “The [well-written] lengthy grounds seeking permission to appeal challenged the interpretation of the Rules and the Article 8 findings on 5 separate grounds.”

      “The grounds …are well argued and argue, inter alia, that Shahzad (s85A: commencement) [2012] UKUT 81 (IAC) applies. That may well be so…All grounds may be argued.”

      “The appeal was … realistically therefore argued [by the Appellants’ solicitors] relying on the impact on return….”


      “…ingenious argument…”

      “…full and detailed…”
