I first met Michelle in 2016 at the start of a very difficult and acrimonious divorce. From the start, Michelle was professional, meticulous and thorough in her work ethic. No matter how busy she was, she always made me feel confident that my case was important and a priority as well as her other cases. 
Not only a wonderful work ethic, but she always showed compassion and empathy towards any emotional needs that I encountered in my three-year journey until the end of my case. 
I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle. She has a wealth of knowledge that is out of this world!

You are in good hands if Jonathan is handling your case. I have complete confidence in him and he delivers. He won't ignore or delay getting back to you if there is a query. Highly recommended!

I had a very positive experience with Durand Hart as my immigration lawyer. He combines a high level of professionalism and legal skill with real compassion for those who are navigating their way through daunting immigration procedures. I was guided throughout the process and was excellently represented at my appeal hearing, even though I had a complex case history that fell outside the standard rules. The meticulous research and preparation Durand had insisted on before the hearing really paid off. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking immigration expertise.

Michelle is an exceptional family lawyer, who for over 10 years has dedicated herself to the needs of our family and our vulnerable loved one. I wouldn't use anyone else. Michelle is hard-working, committed and fair, always ensuring the needs of others are met and well-maintained and we are very grateful to have her and her team beside us.

Our case was not straightforward and the Home Office made things difficult by making mistakes. Jonathan Hendry is an amazing lawyer. He is very professional, very responsive, kind and honest. Jonathan was always available to give advice and support. I would always recommend him.


Jonathan's help with my visa application was invaluable. I have lived in the UK for over 12 years so when my Indefinite Leave to Remain was refused over a year ago, I didn't know where to turn or what to do. Jonathan took over the appeal process and provided exceptional service and support throughout the whole journey. His knowledge and professionalism exceeded any other firm I have consulted with. He also remained positive and optimistic throughout the whole process even when my patience was running low. As a result, a year later, I have now been granted the Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK and it's all thanks to Jonathan and his team.


I have previously sought advice from Durand Hart on several immigration and related employment law matters. Each time I have been offered practical advice, guiding me along each step whilst also being sensitive to cost. Most importantly I have had a 100% success rate with him. I can't recommend Durand Hart highly enough.
