" There has been a significant increase in decisions by the Home Office to deprive British Citizens of their Nationality in the past two years. Although a small number of cases attract a lot of media publicity, many of the recent decisions taken involve clients who have no criminal record such as Albanian nationals who obtained refugee status and citizenship on the basis of an asylum claim based on Kosovan identity. 

I have represented many clients in this area, and successfully challenged decisions by the Home Office to nullify citizenship. I have also successfully obtained British passports for clients who would like evidence of their identity whilst their deprivation appeal is ongoing. Deprivation of Citizenship appeals are complex legal proceedings and it is important to get the best legal advice to assist you with your legal challenge. "

Before we take on a case we always want to establish what the right kind of application is for you and this is what the Assessment Stage is all about.

We find out more about you and what you want to achieve. It is an informal discussion which can be delivered how you want it, whether that is over the phone, using video conferencing or at our easily accessible office - it is entirely your choice.

This stage is completely free and there is no obligation to take on our paid services. At the end of the Assessment Stage you will have a clear plan as to the range of applications available, the costs involved and how likely you are to get a successful outcome.

What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Legal adviser?

They deprive my citizenship and indefinite leave. Also they refuse my parents to visit me. On top of that they refused my wife's visa.

How did Mark help you?

He helped me on everything that I asked for. He was always available at any time. Through Mark and Paragon Law I exceeded all my cases.  

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes, in all the cases which they are all in my favour.

What could they have done better? From my point of view they were better than expected.
