I would always recommend Richard, because he can make it very clear and easy for you, and advises you about things you wouldn’t know about. He helps you every step of the way…

Client D was helped by Richard when she gained a permanent job while on a working holiday with her partner. It was an exciting thing to happen, but now she needed a permanent visa to match.

How to find an immigration lawyer

The two were living and working in the Mackay region, and they were unfamiliar with the options open to them. So, they did what everyone does when faced with such a situation: They went to the internet.

That’s how they found us. But it wasn’t until Client D and partner were walking down Wood Street that they decided to make contact. And they did: By simply walking through the front door and asking a question.

Richard helped Client D with everything she needed

When they met with Richard, he knew exactly what needed to happen. He was able to explain all of the available options to Client D with clarity and precision. Richard went through everything that would see Client D present an application that would have the best chances of success. 

Client D came away from that meeting confident that we could help her.

‘We felt happy to have met a lawyer who took the time to hear us and help us out,’ she said.

Client D went on:

“Both my partner and I had a clear understanding of the procedure ahead. We were sure Richard would only take on a case if he believed he could be of help. It was the best choice we made. You don’t want to risk messing up applications or missing documents, it was clear Richard knew exactly what was needed and would follow up on us if things were unclear at the department of immigration.”

It turns out that other lawyers don’t always do the same thing. 

‘Previously we had attempted to meet with immigration lawyers in Melbourne,’ recalled Client D. ‘They wouldn’t take the time out to listen to us, or reply to our email.”

During the process of applying, Richard helped Client D and her partner with a statement about their relationship. It was something they had never had to do before.

Then, we waited…

As is always the case, waiting for a decision from the Department of Immigration is not fun. Waiting is hard, and once we lodge an application, there is nothing we can do except wait.

In Client D’s case, the application was delayed even longer because of a change of regulations. Theirs, and a number of other applications, took longer than anticipated to come through.

But, come through it did – and now Client D and her partner are happy to be able to experience living in Australia.

Client D: “He helps you every step of the way.”

This is what Client D had to say about the experience of working with us:

“I would always recommend Richard, because he can make it very clear and easy for you, and advises you about things you wouldn’t know about. He helps you every step of the way and makes sure your application is as perfect as it gets. When you come in to a new country you just don’t want to make the mistake of trying to figure these things out for yourself, you need the best help you can get if you want to succeed.”
