Greetings, and thank you for visiting my personal website and online portfolio. My name is Arshad Mahmood, and I specialise in the UK Immigration and Human Rights laws. I am a qualified solicitor of The Supreme Court of England and Wales and a Member of The Law Society of England and Wales. I am the owner and the Managing Director of Sunrise Solicitors Ltd. I am also the Training Principal for the purposes of providing training contracts to Trainee Solicitors at Sunrise Solicitors.
I have been practising immigration and human rights law since 2003 and have gained vast knowledge and experience in my area of practice. Having worked for various law firms of high reputations and having gained required experience, knowledge and skills as an Immigration Solicitor, I then took the bold steps of setting up my own Law Firm Sunrise Solicitors Ltd and started this practice from 31 July 2008. My business of Law Firm has been very successful. My specialisation in immigration and human rights laws coupled with my IT and Management Skills have helped me a lot in achieving a great success in my business.
I am very dedicated in provision of immigration legal services to my clients and almost all my clients have my mobile number to contact me as a matter of urgency should the need arise. I always deal with my clients' immigration cases putting myself in their position and giving it importance from their point of view. I have very good skills of assessing prospects of success in an immigration cases as well as choosing the right options for a client in particular circumstances of his case. I believe in giving 100% honest opinion on merits of the cases and where an application, immigration appeal or Judicial Reivew cannot succeed, in my expert opinion, the same is conveyed to the client without any exaggeration about chances of success in the immigration case.
I believe in providing a fast, friendly, honest, reliable, affordable and professional immigration service.

We can assess the supporting documents of an immigration case and advise you on the weaknesses and strengths of your case.
