    My experience with Healys started when I was recommended to communicate with Mr. Omar Shams, I was told “He is an expert in the field of business immigration”.

    We started talking, he put a plan together, provided me with all possible advice and experience to start preparing my documents. When I needed to go back to him personally to discuss things; he was always there, by all possible means of communication.

    He kept guiding me, where, when, and how to move forward in my matter. It didn’t take long until I received my business visa, following that receiving my BRP.

    Up till now Mr. Omar keeps proving that he is a very experienced and professional lawyer, he knows what he is doing, and never lets his client worry. Mr. Omar is a blessing.
