“I would thoroughly recommend Paragon Law and Thalej personally. During our work with them, Paragon Law not only demonstrated deep knowledge of their subject, but also worked with great commitment, integrity and care, and their advice was easy to follow.”
Ganna Polishchuk, Chief Operating Officer, Slando
“I got to know Thal in the process of providing support to Chinese investors with intentions to set up in the UK since 2009. These ranged from small companies and large gobal corporations.
Thal and his team's awareness of Chinese culture, knowledge of immigration in the UK, and approach to build a long-term relationship with the clients, have facilitated the Chinese companies to set up and develop in the UK.
I would be glad to recommend Thal to other Chinese companies investing in the UK who need specialist advice and service to help their Chinese staff enter and work in the UK legally.”
Min Rose, China Business Advisor, East Midlands China Business Bureau

"My previous legal representatives had lost my deportation appeal and my case got to the stage where I was sent back to Sierra Leone but then wasn't allowed in because I had not been there since I was 6 years old. When I got back to the UK I instructed Paragon Law who took on my case. Not only, after years of fighting my corner, did they manage to get my indefinite leave to remain re-instated. I also received £30 000 in compensation from the UK Border Agency for having unlawfully detained me after the end of my criminal sentence"
AH, Sierra Leone
"My last legal representatives told me that I did not have a case. However, when I instructed Paragon Law they assured me that I did, especially as I am from a country within the EU. They arranged everything for my appeal, including taking a witness statement from my wife and instructing a barrister. We were successful in Court and I am now allowed to remain in the UK with my wife and son who suffers from a serious medical condition."
"The appellant's history, both before and after he came to this country is a long and unhappy one. There are six witness statements from the appellant that deal with various aspects, both of the events upon which he relies and the awful experiences that he appears to have had at the hands of one firm of solicitors who, it seems, dealt with the original asylum claim and his appeal. One bright spot in all of this is the hard work, tenacity and the professionalism of his present solicitors, Paragon Law"
Judge Pullig (Immigration Judge speaking about Paragon Law's work with a Russian asylum seeker facing deportation and whose appeal was allowed )
"Once more I'll say that you've done a great job regardless the outcome. You've done more work for me in few days that all my other solicitors for past 5 and half years.”
"Aldijana is an all-round excellent solicitor, who leaves no stone unturned in terms of the preparation of her client’s case and in seeking to ensure a positive outcome. She adopts a professional approach in all that she does and is an extremely able lawyer. Clients will find her very easy and pleasant to deal with. Further, they can be sure that they will receive informed and realistic advice."
Vijay Jagadesham, Barrister at Garden Court North
'I was very happy with the services i received from my Case worker Caroline Kioi,as an asylum seeker, she was very truthful to me about my case, she was able to explain the issues at stake to me in clearer terms, even though my case was a little bit weak, she made sure she presented the witness statement in practical terms, underlining the major issues and the statement was very precises.
She was also very diligent in her duties, time keeping was excellent. The most important thing is that she was very reassuring, and very supportive, in the end i had a very good news and a positive decision, i will strongly recommend Caroline Kioi my case worker to anyone and also Paragon Law to any individual. I really appreciate the services i received and say a big thank you to caroline and her Company as a whole.'
First of all I would like to thank you for your help and support . Your help has contributed a lot towards the success of my case. I felt that you were quiet sincere in your work as you increased the amount and the length of appointments that i had with you . This helped to greatly cover every points and made me fully prepared .I also appreciate the fact that you requested to change the first interpreter that was made available for me .This was due to a lack of understanding ,which I believe, was not the case with the interpreter you had appointed .
Am grateful that you ensured that you attended all of my home-office appointments with me .My over all experience, was quiet pleasant and successful. I would definitively recommend you in the future to my friends and family and finally , I would like to thank you for all your efforts and support.
“I will never be able to appreciate enough for Deirdre Sheahan’s legal assistance. Words are so limited in any modern language that they can hardly express my gratefulness for her work for me & my kids. However, words are the only means I have to communicate how outstanding, professional, and efficient was her legal assistance in my case. She placed herself in my shoes, felt my need, and demonstrated the remarkable, top quality individual that she is with her clients. Deirdre concern shows how much she cares for them at the personal level to get things done professionally. Thank you very much Deirdre for everything, you are the best, god bless you!”

'Miss Deirdre has a very wonderful heart and we are touched by the care and concern that she has for our emotional wellbeing.
Today we are greatly thankful to her and indebted to her for giving us another chance to live life peacefully and happily.
She made possible what we had thought to be impossible.
We cannot thank her enough for her care, dedication and personal attention in our matter.
Miss Deirdre is a very knowledgeable, kind and dedicated solicitor and to be represented by her was a privilege that we are thankful of.'
