JCWI Immigration Legal Advice

JCWI deals with all areas of asylum and immigration law. We are recognised as experts in this field. We have almost 50 years experience of fighting for justice for those who are vulnerable. We are known for dealing with complex immigration issues and challenging government policy and legislation.

We represent clients at all stages of the legal process including applications to the Home Office, entry clearance, appeals and judicial review.

JCWI employs three solicitors.


We hold an advice surgery on Tuesday mornings between 10am-12noon. We allocate slots in the drop in to people who phone in advance to book their place on a “first come first served” basis. Please phone 020 7251 8708 to book an appointment. For this service we charge a one off fee of £75. The aim of this service is to assist those who cannot afford to pay our full private fees or where they are financially eligble for legal aid but their case is now out of scope and exceptional case funding is not available. Please note that we are unable to provide free advice.

It is possible to arrange fixed-fee appointments with solicitors at other times. Please contact our team for further information.


In addition, we run a number of free helplines:


If you are in the United Kingdom without documentation and would like free and confidential legal advice then please phone our specialist irregular migrant helpline (funded by Trust for London) on:020 7553 7470 between 10am and 1pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.


If you are in prison and need immigration advice please contact our free and confidential helpline on 020 7553 7468 every Wednesday between 10am-11am. You can also fax your enquiry to Fax: 020 7251 8707.


We run a specific helpline for UNISON members and provide free initial advice on all aspects of immigration law. The helpline runs on Tuesdays from 10am-3pm. Members should contact Unison in the first instance and ask them to contact us to arrange a phone call.
