    Johnson's provides privately funded migration advice and, where appropriate, representation. We do not provide free legal services funded by the Legal Aid agency (formerly the Legal Services Commission) or other public sources. You won't be charged for the "triage" service, providing initial assessment and identification of issues. Then getting information from you, considering and advising will usually be done for an agreed fixed fee or an agreed hourly rate.

    We can provide "one-off" pieces of bespoke service, advising and assisting with a particular issue. We can provide some fixed fee services and some other services at competitive hourly rates.

  •  Advice on how to meet the immigration rules to enter other countries either for temporary or permanent residence. Australian, Canadian, Indian and US expertise and advice available for migration throughout the world.
