"My husband and I just wanted to thank Angela Mackie-Rutledge for all her hard work in helping us with the EEA Family Permit. I am from Spain and we've been fighting since October to prepare our application. We had a fast wedding on the 5th Jan and now I can say my husband is with me in the UK. We recommend her for her services, from helping us find the right visa to apply for, to helping us gather and prepare the materials and filing the application itself, we are very grateful for her help making this happen" - Feeling blessed
"Angela stepped in and helped me at two critical moments when our lawyer made two grave mistakes. So thankful for Angela's help. She was available at short notice, beyond responsive, and incredibly helpful. Everything was finished and we were successful. Thank you, Angela!"
I would like to highly recommend the services of Talley and Barrow to the highest regard. I was fortunate enough to find Ms. Angela Rutledge via f/b and what a good find indeed. I have retained her services to complete the remainder of my visa process which is due to finalize with Dual Citizenship this November. She has been highly professional, proficient, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable and efficient! I would be happy to speak to anyone personally who would like a first-hand account of how satisfied I am with her services!
I am so glad I hired Angela to help me with my spouse visa application. It was a very last minute decision with very tight timeframe, without hesitation she spent many hours going through various options with me and staying up at ungodly hours with me just so we can make sure the application was done properly and also within the required timeframe. Without her professional and timely help, I would never have been able to get my visa and I can’t thank her enough for always being there for me!! I would highly recommend her!
I engaged with Angela after a very urgent situation with a lot of ambiguity involved. Angela was very prompt in getting involved in my situation, reassuring where possible, doing the work to understand issues where the situation was unclear and doing due diligence by consulting with her peers. Angela is well organised and easy to communicate with. I appreciate that she put in extra time to resolve a very time sensitive matter.
Angela, was such an amazing help to me and my wife. I felt she did such a thorough job and went the extra mile to make sure everything was correct. Definitely worth every penny and more. I highly recommend her if you need any help.
Angela has been great with my daughter in laws immigration case. She was other end of the phone whenever we needed her. She was very supportive and on time every time. I would recommend Angela and her firm to anyone for all legal advice.
Thank you Angela.
I met with Angela Mackie-Rutledge to discuss my settlement visa. I can't say enough good things about the service i received!! I would 100% recommend her services to anyone seeking peace of mind during such a stressful time.
