Professional Rugby League Player
Emily has been outstanding in my visa process. She was always there to assist and her help was invaluable. She is responsive, transparent, professional and has a good ability to translate the complexities of immigration into everyday language, with a good understanding of the sector. I cannot recommend her enough.
CEO, Bradford Bulls
In all of the Bradford Bulls Rugby League Football Club dealings with Emily and Glyn, I can personally vouch for their integrity, agility, professionalism and personal touch in being able to translate the complexities of immigration into everyday language. Given all this and their undoubted sector expertise, I would wholeheartedly personally Newfields to anyone seeking to progress and resolve immigration related issues.
