Legal services in the UK can be provided by Barristers, Solicitors or – to a limited extent in the case of immigration – caseworkers with a qualification granted by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (“OISC”).
Demstone Chambers is led by specialist Barristers, supported by a team of OISC accredited immigration representatives and chambers assistants. We aspire to give training and work experience opportunities to diligent and motivated law students who are progressing towards a career as a lawyer. Whenever possible, we also do charitable (“pro bono”) work in the community with local organisations helping vulnerable persons, for example those who are seeking asylum or looking to resolve their immigration status.
Immigration services include making Visa Applications, drafting documents such as grounds for Immigration Appeals, Administrative Review or Judicial Review, and appearing in the Immigration Tribunal to challenge decisions of the Home Office. We understand the way the Home Office works because we have worked in immigration practice for many years. Our practitioners are experts in this area of law. They are regularly invited to give talks and lectures to members of the public and other lawyers to share their expertise in immigration law.
Employment services include drafting Employment Tribunal claims for Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination, or Redundancy related issues, and attending the Employment Tribunal to represent clients. We can also provide advice to employers on HR and compliance related issues.
Family services include making applications to the Family Court in child related matters (e.g. Child Arrangements Orders (Child Contact Orders), or local authority care issues), Dispute resolution, Family Court hearings, and advising on Divorce and Adoption related matters.
Our fees naturally depend on the type of work being undertaken. We generally work on fixed fees agreed in advance of work commencing, as opposed to hourly rates. Further information about our fees can be found here.
