Living & Working in Ireland: Information for migrants about your options

Non-Nationals face a number of barriers before and on their entry into the Irish State and we have published some useful guides below. It can be a stressful, pressurised, worrying and even harsh experience. We have a national reputation for our immigration work and substantial experience of representing non-nationals through the maze of legislation.

Our firm is renowned for our expertise, yet small enough to ensure that every client receives a personal service with a qualified Irish Law Society solicitor not a call centre!

We have extensive experience in the whole range of immigration, asylum and nationality work, at all levels up to and including the High Court and Supreme Courts of Ireland.

This includes; All Visa Application types (short and long stay) / Applications for change of status / Irish Born Child Residency Applications (Zambrano) / Subsidiary Protection Applications / Complex deportation matters and contesting the issuing and validity of Deportation and Transfer Orders / Any other general immigration and asylum queries.

Whilst most of our client work is for standard residency applications, we have also acted in a number of very high profile cases (including Djolo v Minister for Justice Equality & Law Reform, Donatus v Refugee Appeals Tribunal and Shang v Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner. 

We have had high profile successes just recently in the ground-breaking EU Free movement cases of Mahmood and Atif v Minister for Justice and Equality delivered on 14th October 2016 and Mohammed Haroon & Nik BibI Haroon v The Minister for Justice in November 2016).

Our solicitors specialize in representing clients and in preparing detailed grounds of appeal and submissions on their behalf.

“A key feature of our approach is that no case is too big or too small, and we bring the same dedication and professionalism to all our work, from ‘routine’ applications to the most high-profile cutting-edge case. We offer very competitive private fee rates and we work with a ‘client for life’ ethic to ensure that we develop a relationship so that we can help people with other legal issues if needed in future.”

My Name is Deepesh and I am from India, I am in student visa in this country. This is the second time I contacted Sinnott Solicitors with my visa issues. They provide me an excellent and honest service both times and help me to get my justice.

I write this review because they are honest about their service (Specially Una and Carol Sinnott) . They told me honestly about the practical -situation before they start proceeding. They never tried to give me any fake promise. That’s the excellent part.

Name of my Solicitor was Una, She is excellent and capable of handle visa issues. I highly recommend Una Solicitor if any one have visa issues specially if you come from Out of Europe.

Once again thank you so much Una and Carol for your Service from the bottom of my heart.
