After living in the country for five years and experiencing two visa refusals, I was starting to lose hope.I was particularly impressed by your team's knowledge and their ability to navigate the complex application process. They were able to highlight my strengths, address any weaknesses, and present a compelling case for my permanent residency.Thanks to your team's hard work and perseverance, I can now call Australia my permanent home. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy immigration lawyer.

I want to take the time to say thank you to Edward. Today I can say that I’m an Australian permanent resident because of the healing service I provide for the community through men’s healing circles and the treatment of traumatic memories in people.Edward helped me to achieve permanent residency within a year through a Global Talent Visa, which represents the best way I could ever think to become permanent resident because of what the nature of this work represents for myself.An acknowledgment that I could never have achieved without his presence, leadership, patience and clarity.Especially after I ended up on a Tourist Visa exactly in December 2021 after 7 years already living in Australia. I remember that hard time very clearly and I also recall the hope, the trust and far more importantly the clarity that Edward provided me during a very long coffee last year. That time when he first proposed to me to apply for a Global Talent Visa because of the unique and important work I have been opening myself towards for the community.I’m a permanent resident today after years of trying any road possible, and if it wasn’t for Edward I don’t know where I would be now. Especially during the moments of deep uncertainty that this process always brings up, especially when I started to think that Australia would probably never be my “home”. Again, if it wasn’t for Edward I don’t know where I would be now.Edward has been much more for me than just a lawyer, he has been an anchor and companion that has supported me mentally and far more during this process.I recommend Edward for anyone who wants to engage in a genuine process of achieving permanent residency. I recommend his sharp attention to details, his knowledge, humanity and also his trustworthy accountability.

Is there a guarantee of success?

We are not in the position of granting visas. The decision to grant or refuse a visa solely belongs to the Department of Immigration ( DOHA). However, we do guarantee that we will do all that it takes, starting from preparation of documents, submissions and all communication with your allocated DOHA case manager, in order to receive the most favourable outcome. We will fight for you till the end!

How long is the process?

The processing times, from the initial consultation to the final submission of the visa application varies. Usually, it depends on how quickly a client provides all necessary requested documents in support of a visa application and of course the complexity of the work involved to prepare the matter.

What are the fees like?

We do not charge hourly rates to our clients.We provide a lump sum agreement, with all fees broken down and paid for each individual bulk of work completed and invoiced. This approach enables our clients to track the progress of a visa preparation from the start to the final stage of submitting an application with the DOHA.

How much for the initial consultation?

The initial face-to-face consultation is $380. All consultations are made strictly by an appointment either over the phone or through our website “enquiry form”. However, if for some reason you are unable to see us in person, we offer on-line Zoom Consultation.
