In Hassouna et al v. Canada (MCI) 2017 FC 473, my office worked with other counsel to successfully strike down as unconstitutional certain citizenship revocation laws that targeted immigrants who had committed some form of fraud during the citizenship application process. In Ge et al. v.

Clients should look for a lawyer who has at least several years of proven successful experience in the type of law that relates to their case.

Local knowledge is important largely as it relates to understanding the procedures and knowing the personnel at local immigration offices, tribunals and courts.

    I'll recommend Matthew Jeffery if you want to file immigration applications. His knowledge and experience made the process smooth. You don't have to have any knowledge about the process, just follow steps which are well organized. Matthew and his team were very responsive in answering any type of questions I asked, even stupid ones. But please still review your application forms carefully. It's still your responsibility to review your own application. 5-stars service!

    Scott Silber

    Fantastic, straightforward service throughout. All the staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with at all points in the process and made my adjustment of sponsorship application so much easier. My partner and I are delighted with the result and would easily recommend Matthew to anyone. If you're looking for people who really take the time to know your case and give you first-class service, there's really no one else worth considering!
