The service my husband and I received from Oracle Solicitors was outstanding. They assisted with my husband’s EEA Family Permit Application. Both Ronald Sempebwa and Crystal McGowan who we dealt with presented as highly experienced and competent. They were always professional whilst also very pleasant in their communication. It was honestly quite incredible how quickly and efficiently they dealt with everything, including my many queries! I cannot express just how grateful I am to this firm. They made a potentially very stressful process run incredibly smoothly. I would highly recommend Oracle Solicitors. I will certainly recommend them to friends and family and will use the again myself if the need arises.
