Kristine has received the following recent testimonials and reviews from a number of her clients:
“We found OTS and Kristine, after having a refusal due to a bad advice from a less than average lawyer. Kristine managed everything from start to finish, kept us informed, always replied to questions and followed everything through to the issuing of visas for my wife and stepson. 5 stars is not enough for their service, no point using anyone else, these guys are the best. A massive thanks to Kristine. We will make OTS first choice for anything in the future they can help us with.”
“Thank you to Kristine for handling our spouse visa Application with so much care and consideration throughout the whole process. I came across OTS Solicitors 2yrs ago after hearing about Teni and Oshin's amazing work, I knew I would be using their services for our Visa Application. Kristine went above and beyond, she definitely took our case and personally handled it. The communication with us was exceptional from start to finish. I would highly recommend Kristine & OTS Solicitors to anyone with an Immigration matter.”
“It's been a great experience with OTS Solicitors especially with Kristine and Hans. Kristine is always available to answer all your questions and in a very polite manner.
