Stephane is the most considerate person and ensures that cases win. He explains every step of the process throughly and makes sure that I understand decisions I make to the highest extent. He also charges a reasonable price for the high level of work done. Moreover Stephane is a kind individual who makes everything understandable and easy to follow.

Stéphane Gentili is a no-frills lawyer. If you're looking for a solicitor that will support you every step of the way with your immigration matter, then look no further. He left no stone unturned and carried out tons of research to support my case. Even when I couldn't see light at the end of the tunnel, he kept on encouraging me and fighting my corner until I received a positive decision from the Home office. The hard work and effort he puts into a case is really commendable. We need more lawyers like him. I will not hesitate to recommend this firm to anyone who needs assistance with immigration issues. I thank you immensely for helping me live a free life.

We’re a family from Bangladesh. Mr Stephane Gentili helped me and my family with our complicating immigration case. I have known him for 8 years. He is one of the most committed and dedicated immigration lawyers I’ve ever met. He is someone that lives for helping people through difficult immigration situations; explaining your case in detail, representing thoroughly and fighting your corner to the best of his ability.

Additionally, his presentation and communication are totally outstanding and expectational. It is so well presented and outlined thus, it is remarkably so easy to understand although, it is also truly very effective in challenging your case.
I can honestly say that I’ve been to many legal advisors, but I haven’t met many similar to Stephane. He does everything in his power to help his clients and stays in contact all the time to update you and reassure you so you're not constantly worried. A truly great immigration advisor and a lovely person in general. I would strongly recommend ‘Gentili Stark Solicitors’ from personal experience for whatever immigration problem you have. Stephane is best placed to advise/direct you in the right direction.

My first experience with Stephane occurred during tragic circumstances. I was detained at Yarl’s Wood detention center, due to a combination of my previous lawyer’s negligence and the HO’s (Home Office's) oversight relating to my application.

A friend with knowledge of people in immigration law managed to secure contacts for me. The following is an excerpt written in one of my personal statements:

“I emailed them all, briefing them on my history and application. It was a Friday afternoon, and I realized that some of them would only respond to me by Monday morning. One of them kept emailing me and responding to me all weekend. He was extremely passionate and absolutely angry on my behalf. He asked for a call, and the O2 mast was down in Bedfordshire that day. I informed him of such, and told him we’d need to stick to emails for the time being. We were emailing all weekend, including one night when he stayed up until 4 am to work on my application. I really appreciated his passion, feeling supported like that was really needed.”

I share this to demonstrate Stephane’s support and genuine passion in helping people. His explanations were clear and direct. My asylum case was very complicated; he was able to break it down and made it very easy to understand the intricacies of what we would be dealing with.

Another excerpt, about a friend’s visit to Yarl’s Wood, exemplifies this:

“I was in a joyous mood, because I found a good immigration lawyer now and trusted him. [My friend] was initially really angry on my behalf, but started relaxing when she observed my relaxed mood and when I described the new lawyer’s work.”

After my release from detention, my mental health suffered dramatically. Not only did Stephane work tirelessly on my case, he also kept checking on me and whether I was getting the emotional support I needed. He urged me to get therapy, which helped massively. This human touch is obviously very important for clients.

My previous lawyer’s negligence and confusing advice lead to a loss of 1 year of my life in immigration limbo, which ended in my detention. With Stephane’s help, I won my case within 2.5 months of being released. The time that passed between my substantive asylum interview and the HO informing us of our success was 5 days. I am certain that this would not have happened without his vast assistance and support throughout this process. I was very comforted with his expertise throughout the process; my only concern was about the HO possibly making further mistakes.

On top of all this, he advised me regarding the HO’s oversight that lead to my detention, and that he thought I would be successful in getting my s.3c reinstated. He did this without any prompting from me, as he found a pending application in my immigration history and told me that he would consult a barrister to look into it. We were successful due to Stephane’s hard work on getting the JR proceedings through. As a result, we also succeeded in our unlawful detention claim against the HO.

Stephane is also truly generous and helpful. His focus is on the people; he is not commercially driven. He is honest, has strong values, and holds himself to high standards. He also helped friends with visa inquiries and advice. One of my friends said of him, “People like him genuinely make me want to be a better person, he has been like an angel from heaven to you.”

Do not hesitate to call Stephane. I could not recommend his deep expertise, >20 years of experience and knowledge highly enough. I have made the mistake of hiring a solicitor without doing the research that I should have done in hindsight. Asylum and immigration law is a very emotional topic for the clients who are forced into this unfortunate position, which is notorious for being scrutinized by the HO; they are infamous for the mistakes they make. Hire a competent expert. You cannot go wrong with Stephane. He and his business partner, Claudia, have been solid rocks of support during this devastating chapter of my life.

I would give them 6 out of 5 stars.

At the beginning of the long process for Michael to be granted Leave to Remain we understood the basic legitimacy of our case but were completely unprepared for how complicated and protracted the Home Office process was.

All of our friends and my family members were fully behind Michael being given the leave to remain and to make a new life in UK with the person he loved the most.

Meeting Stephane through Islington Law Centre was such a relief as he listened to our case and shared our determination for a fair outcome and was able to guide us through the maze of Home Office rules and regulations.

Having someone who believes in you and listens positively to you while gently guiding you through this protracted process has been invaluable in giving us both the strength to carry on.

And now Michael can start to plan this next major stage of his life as he wants to continue his Law studies and hopes one day to be able to offer the same level of service, respect and support to the many people who find the need to negotiate UK legal system.

Stephane Gentili it was a miracle to have met you. I have met you 3 years ago and you have been my lawyer since, you have worked with care, professionalism and with responsibility for my case.
You have done the same for my brother that was overseas. You with your dedicated work, managed to bring my brother to me, you brought my life back and gave me and my brother hope that we will get justice and right to have a safe life.
You always have answered your phone when I have called you worried about my future and you have given me hope and trust.
Now we are both happily settled and are very grateful to Stéphane for his commitment, compassion and hard work

I appreciate everything that you have done for us and I consider you as my family. Thanks for being part of our lives.
