We strive to bring our clients together with their loved ones as soon as possible, ensuring the details of their unique relationship are understood.
We assist our clients who have fled their home to navigate the legal system, claim asylum and find protection in Canada.
We are serious about your immigration success. Our law office focuses on immigration and refugee hearings and litigation. We advocate for our clients to remain in Canada and to achieve status.
For those who are not able to achieve status through traditional program streams or are inadmissible we advocate for our clients using humanitarian and compassionate (H&C) grounds.
If your application or appeal is rejected, you may request the Federal Court intervene to send the matter back to a new decision maker for redetermination.
HEARINGS AND APPEALS
We prepare for and represent our clients through the various steps needed for their immigration matters before the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) including Immigration Division (ID), Immigration Appeal Division (IAD), Refugee Protection Division (RPD) and Refugee Appeal Division (RAD).
We support our clients who are facing removal from Canada through removal order appeals, pre-removal risk assessments, and emergency stay of removal motions before the Federal Court.
