Our commitment towards diversity and inclusion

Our team is comprised of professionals from various nationalities and backgrounds – and we all have a degree of familiarity with the UK. Most of the team have undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from universities here and have work experience in the country. With this in mind, GOOD ADVICE UK boasts a mostly bilingual team.

Our Culture

Clearly, we are well-positioned to make a positive societal impact by leveraging our specific skills and experience.

We believe in improving the life standards of our clients, and our work raises awareness towards several crucial social challenges (displacement, violence against partners, ethical misconduct, and so on).

Immigration issues should always be underlined and litigants must consider all alternative routes for resolution. Our approach ensures the successful and consistent delivery of services in line with high professional and ethical standards.

As a result, we dedicate ourselves to our work to make the following positive impacts:

Lifestyle impacts

Cultural impacts

Quality of life impacts

Health impacts

GOOD ADVICE UK is a believer in ethical conduct, and our continued success contributes to both the economic development and quality of life of our workforce, their families, as well as society at large.

Notes from Director

"No matter the nature of the case, our ultimate aim is to make a positive impact towards individuals’, families’, and businesses’ lives. I believe innovative business models start not only with an idea but also with a prediction of the future. Organisations then ground themselves with goals and values to build a core. This is why I encourage and ensure our team goes the extra mile so that each and every party sees the bigger picture."

Our Team's Competence

Our team is young, ambitious and socially aware with the intellectual capacity and to resolve various immigration cases. All of this undoubtedly happens at the intersection of the UK’s ever-changing immigration law and public policy. As GOOD ADVICE UK, we protect human rights and commit to delivering results in compliance with the law.


We recruit, train and promote on merit and operate an open, inclusive and supportive environment. In this regard, diversity and inclusion are core to our team. Furthermore, transparency also increases engagement and motivates the team as they see the fruits of their labour in real time.


It is especially delightful to see each member’s display and time/effort investment to surpass our clients’ expectations as well as mine. They never fail to make connections to relevant socio-political issues intersecting with our field. In essence, they research, find, develop and participate in each case strategically. Then, our collective and ultimate expectation becomes converting these efforts into impressive, measurable results.


Despite these high expectations, I believe each contributor should make demands on the Company in return. This dialogue is key to managing and developing talent. Indeed, our staff should have fulfilling and happy lives outside the workplace. In effect, I am against making unreasonable work demands and thus encourage everyone working with us to be social. Contributing to society is one of our main goals and we always operate with the mindset of making the most mutually beneficial social impact possible.

Key facts

Then, how do we choose the direction to channel our efforts on? GOOD ADVICE UK’s professionals always apply their legal and business skills, passionate commitment and boundless energy to help others. Firstly, we identify and involve all potentially affected groups and individuals. Public involvement should be an active and interactive process in individuals. Public involvement should then reach out to groups that do not routinely participle in government decision-making because of barriers. These may appear in cultural, linguistic and economic contexts.

All things considered, we ensure the needs and voices of diverse groups and the community are heard, ultimately enabling everyone to live their ideal life.

My project-1

Mr. Atef Elmarakby
Contact Information

I began my journey in London as a student in 2004 and became a British citizen by 2015. Having experienced the UK’s complex and dynamic immigration system first-hand as a migrant myself, I have developed a good understanding of the practical relocation obstacles as well as the legal challenges that come with immigration. This helped me relate closely to my clients later.

At the age of 28 and during the acute recession of 2008, I established GOOD ADVICE UK, and since then, my team and I have together assisted over 14000 clients in realising their personal goals and immigration objectives in the UK.

Immigration law has always been my passion and over the last 20 years of working in London, I have consistently managed to leverage my problem-solving, resourcefulness and entrepreneurial skills into good use for my clients so that they can realise their goals.

During this time, we worked with every imaginable client profile including entrepreneurs, students, families, innovators, skilled workers, artists, highly skilled migrants, intra-company staff, businesses and asylum-seekers.

Whether helping a company, student, worker, or a person needing help and protection, there is a deep sense of fulfilment achieved when releasing one’s goals.

This sense of fulfilment and joy when concluding a matter is what kept us moving and growing as a team exerting every effort in tailoring our advice to our clients’ needs.

I believe in having a friendly and personal approach with each client while remaining neutral and professional during the process which can be daunting in many situations, especially when dealing with government rules that are constantly changing. In fact, I have been lucky enough to have friends who became my clients and many clients now I consider friends.

Any success that GOOD ADVICE UK had over the years can simply be attributed to hard work and determination of a dedicated team of fantastic people that I am proud to call family.

When not in the office helping clients, outings with friends and family through the walks of London, cycling or simply having a cup of tea outdoors, brings an additional joy.
