In fact, it is through LinkedIn that I was impressed by his knowledge and experience and so I decided to approach him to assist on one of my long standing cases; due to the sensitive and complex issues in my client’s case I felt very strongly that Ben was the man for the job.
Once a pre-hearing conference was arranged for my client to meet in Chambers with Ben, right from the outset I found Ben to be very understanding, experienced and sensitive to the issues. He really did go that extra mile.
Thanks to Ben’s exceptional input, research and preparation for the case, the Immigration Judge not only allowed the appeal but more shockingly the HOPO admitted that there were no flaws at all in the evidence and legal argument. Not surprisingly, the Home Office did not appeal against the decision and my client finallygot his visa!
I would highly recommend this amazing and highly experienced barrister and, wherever possible I would instruct him for hearings.
A Big THANK YOU to you Ben. You are a truly unique and down to earth barrister and an asset to the legal profession!
I would just like to thank you for your empathetic support coupled with your professionalism and expertise when you represented me in negotiating the successful outcome of my case last year.
Ben is a polite and approachable barrister who I find will always give a few minutes of his time. He has a profound insight into complex matters, particularly in relation to legal policy implications in areas to do with the Home Office. His emerging writing is incisive and understandable for a lay person which is important in a field where vulnerable adults are involved.
I commend the application that has been made on behalf of the Claimant for its clarity and realism.

I met Ben Amunwa at his London office 3 days before the hearing and it was very reassuring to know that he had gone through my case and understood it from my point of view. His calm persona and his questioning on the details of the case gave me the confidence that he was on my side. I was particularly impressed with his style of questioning the witnesses and also how well he made references to the bundle… In their final decision the panel found me ‘Not Guilty’ of unacceptable professional conduct or conduct that might bring the profession to disrepute. They found the allegations malicious and false. This outcome would not have been possible if it wasn’t for Ben Amunwa’s professionalism, thoroughness, style of questioning and attention to detail. I cannot thank him enough for all his efforts and can definitely say that he is very good at what he does and is highly recommended by me.

It would have been totally impossible for CORE to do this without Ben Amunwa and Banyan SOAS Advocates and we are massively indebted to them for the huge amount of work that they put in. Thankfully it was all done pro bono so we’re not literally indebted to them.

Ben’s clear advice was invaluable in helping me resolve an employment matter. His paramount concern was to obtain a satisfactory outcome for me whilst ensuring that I incurred as little expense as possible… As a result of his expert advice, I actually avoided going to court altogether, for which I am extremely grateful.

This was my first experience of being involved in anything legal and one that I will never forget, thanks to your sheer professionalism, thoroughness and ability…

I would like to take the opportunity to distinguish the excellent work of Benjamin Amunwa. Ben’s work on my case and the subsequent letters written provided me with a very speedy response and one in which all my terms were agreed. Ben clearly outlined case law with regard to my situation. The level of service provided throughout my claim was beyond my expectation. I was very impressed with the level of support I received and a commitment to excellence that was shown. I would highly recommend Benjamin Amunwa for his level of professionalism and dedication.

I am writing to let you know about the day of hearing on 15th of August 2014. Mr Ben studied my case well and put all the necessary information together to make the grounds stronger. Mr Ben put all his effort into my case and pushed it forward to the end. I especially thank you, the Bar Pro Bono Unit, who help me in my crucial time when I was struggling with my two kids and nobody came forward to help me out and a special thank you to Mr Benjamin Amunwa who guided me all the way to the end.
